Krejci

It wasn’t difficult to pick this week’s Bruin of the Week.

No player starred more at both ends of the rink for the Bruins in their two games — one win and one overtime defeat — than center David Krejci.

Krejci registered one goal and one assist in each contest. Against Toronto, he scored what proved to be the game-winner on a beautiful breakaway with a move to his backhand that faked goaltender Vesa Toskala into the popcorn machine. Krejci also won five of 10 faceoffs against the Leafs.

On Long Island, he scored the go-ahead goal in a contest the Bruins lost in overtime. He also won nine of 11 draws and posted a plus-2 rating.

Other candidates this week were Mark Recchi (two goals and plus-1 vs. Leafs) and Steve Begin (12 hits in two games).
