Kuemper will start Saturday vs. the Bruins.

Kuemper stopped 45 of 46 shots in the Coyotes 2-1 win over the Predators on Thursday. It was a much different performance than the one we saw in Detroit, when he was pulled. Kuemper has lost four of his last six starts (2-3-1) while posting a 3.52 GAA and .899 SV%. He is too inconsistent to trust every night, but tonight he gets a Bruins team on a back-to-back.

The Coyotes have recalled Robbie Russo from Tucson (AHL).

Russo, 25, has registered eight assists in 13 games with Tucson this season. The former fourth-round pick has been called up because the Coyotes blueline is without Jakob Chychrun, Alex Goligoski and Jason Demers, who was injured last night. Russo has no points in 19 career NHL games (all with the Red Wings).

With Kuemper’s struggles and the Predators in town, he’s best left on the bench tonight.

Lyubushkin is expected to draw into the Coyotes lineup on Saturday.

Lyubushkin is expected to play in Pittsburgh because Alex Goligoski is out with a lower-body injury. The 24-year-old defenseman has averaged just 12:10 TOI/gm in five games with the Coyotes this season. Lyubushkin has posted an ugly 47.3 CorsiFor%, -8.5 CF% rel with Arizona this season, so this is a big downgrade from the veteran Goligoski.
