Bruins center Patrice Bergeron practiced Sunday at TD Garden, but fellow center David Krejci continued to miss time.

Bergeron had taken practice off on Friday. The Bruins were off Saturday.

Krejci, who returned from a two-game absence on Thursday against Edmonton, did not practice Friday either. Coach Claude Julien tried to downplay the notion that there was a problem with Krejci, who said he was sore after the win against the Oilers and then missed practice. Krejci said he was going to have to battle injury all year.

“I don’t think that’s his situation. David is definitely not a doctor,” Julien said Friday. “So you know to say he’s going to have to [monitor it] or not, our medical staff is going to be dealing with that. And it’s just a matter of giving him some time here to let him deal with our medical staff and himself. An I anticipate him being fine. We’ve got one of the best medical staffs in the league here in Boston. So we take advantage of that and in mind, he’ll be fine. We’ve just got to give it a little bit of time here.”

Sunday Julien classified Krejci as day-to-day.

Chris Kelly filled Krejci’s spot between Milan Lucic and Seth Griffith. Matt Fraser skated with Carl Soderberg and Loui Eriksson.
