The final day of the regular season one is certainly a busy one with everyone aside from Anaheim in action. While the 16 playoff teams are locked in, several seedings have yet to be determined so there is still plenty at stake. There is bound to be a lot of roster movement today; we’ll keep track of those moves here.
- With Corey Crawford leaving Friday’s game early due to injury, the Blackhawks announced (Twitter link) that they have recalled goaltender Kevin Lankinen from Rockford of the AHL. The 23-year-old is in his first year in North America and has split the season between the AHL and ECHL levels. He’s expected to back up Cam Ward in their season finale against Nashville.
- A day after being sent down, Matt Tennyson is once again back up with Buffalo, per the AHL’s Transactions page. The 28-year-old has been shuttled back and forth from the Sabres and AHL Rochester on a daily basis for the last week and a half but he hasn’t seen any action with the big club during that time.
- The Bruins announced that they’ve recalled winger Anton Blidh and defenseman Jeremy Lauzon from AHL Providence on an emergency basis. It’s Blidh’s second recall of the season although he didn’t get into a game with Boston in his first stint with the team. He has 20 points and 92 penalty minutes in 71 games with Providence. Meanwhile, Lauzon has split the season between the two teams, suiting up in 15 games with the big club and 28 with Providence.
