Bruins center David Krejci is day-to-day with a core injury he suffered during practice Tuesday, head coach Claude Julien confirmed today after a morning skate in Raleigh.
Krejci did not travel with the team. Julien said the Bruins will wait and see how Krejci recovers before determining whether he’ll join the team in Chicago in time for Saturday night’s game there. The head coach also made sure to shoot down the rumor going around that it was a knee injury.
In Krejci’s place on the first line between Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton, Julien said Tyler Seguin will move up to start. Look for Jordan Caron to move in as the right wing on Boston’s third line with Benoit Pouliot and Chris Kelly. The puck drops at 7:30 p.m. and the game is televised on VS.
