WILMINGTON, MA - Forward Ryan Spooner was recalled by Boston on Tuesday from Providence on an emergency basis, and is traveling with the team to Detroit.

There are no injuries, and the entire team is making the trip, including Spooner.

The recall comes in light of Carl Soderberg's wife expecting and David Krejci fighting through a sore throat.

"Everybody's going on the trip," Head Coach Claude Julien confirmed, following the team's optional skate on Tuesday at Ristuccia Arena. The Bruins were flying out for a back-to-back in Detroit and Toronto on Wednesday and Thursday.

"Just, Carl Soderberg is on the bubble there with his wife, she's pregnant, so if he had to leave quickly, we want to make sure we don't get caught without an extra body up front."

"Again, you talked about, 'why is Spooner is up?' Krejci's been dealing with a sore throat too, and if he's not ready to go, then we can always use [Spooner]," added Julien.

With just seven games remaining in the regular season, the priority for the Bruins is having everyone healthy and at 100 percent before the postseason.

As such, minute loggers and Olympians alike stayed off the ice on Tuesday to get rest. The group included Zdeno Chara, David Krejci, Jarome Iginla, Patrice Bergeron and Loui Eriksson.

"That makes a big difference in guys trying to recover," said Julien, of the handful of Bruins getting an extra day of rest following the team's off day on Monday.

As the Bruins head down the stretch, they've already clinched their spot in the playoffs, along with the Atlantic Division. Heading into Tuesday's games, they sat first in the League with 110 points, three points ahead of St. Louis.

"The number one importance of all of this is that our guys are as fresh and as ready to go for the playoffs," said Julien. "And number two, is hopefully, you'll be top in the League."

"But I don't think we're going to flip those and take a chance, because at the end of the day, nobody cares about the President's Trophy if you don't finish it the right way."
