Anton Khudobin ready to contribute for the Bruins

Goalie’s status hinges on Rask’s recovery

On Tuesday, Anton Khudobin stepped onto TD Garden ice for the first time this season as a full-fledged Bruin, serving as Marty Turco’s backup. Had luck gone Khudobin’s way last month, he would have made his 2011-12 season debut far sooner.

On March 3, Tuukka Rask suffered a lower abdomen/groin strain. As Providence’s No. 1 goalie, Khudobin should have been recalled immediately to back up Tim Thomas and see some NHL action. But on Feb. 25, Khudobin suffered an injury of his own.
