by Staff Writer / Boston Bruins
BOSTON, MA - Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the club has recalled goaltender Philippe Sauve, and assigned goaltender Hannu Toivonen to the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League (AHL).

Sauve was acquired by the Bruins from the Phoenix Coyotes in exchange for Tyler Redenbach on November 14, 2006. He has appeared in one game for the Bruins, playing 29 minutes in no-decision relief of Tim Thomas on November 24 against the Carolina Hurricanes. In the single appearance he faced 15 shots, allowing two goals.

While with Providence, Sauve has seen action in 13 games, and has a record of 4-8-1, with a goals-against average on 3.44.

Toivonen, in his fourth year with the Bruins organization, has played ten games for Boston this season, posting a record of 2-5-0 and a goals-against average of 4.31. His most recent outing came in a 5-0 loss at Nashville on Saturday, December 30.

Though he has spent the majority of the season in Boston, Toivonen has appeared in six games for Providence this season, and he has a record of 2-4-0 and a goals-against average of 3.05 with the AHL club.

The Black and Gold return home to the TD Banknorth Garden on Thursday night, when they host the Toronto Maple Leafs at 7:00 p.m. ET.

Tickets are available for all home games online by clicking here, at the TD Banknorth Garden Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlets, or by phone at 617.624.BEAR.

Fans who cannot make it to the game can catch all of the action by watching the action live on NESN, or by tuning into WBZ Radio to hear the live radio broadcast of the game.
