The positive news Monday morning was the Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara took a light skate at TD Garden prior to Boston’s morning skate in preparation for an evening game with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
WILMINGTON — One of the few Bruins players who doesn’t get any of the blame for the back-to-back losses in Montreal and Toronto took a skate this morning under the watchful eye of strength and conditioning coach John Whitesides on Friday at Ristuccia Arena.
WILMINGTON — According to Bruins coach Claude Julien center David Krejci will not make the upcoming road trip and will miss games against the Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively.
According to Bruins coach Claude Julien, center David Krejci is out for the game against the New Jersey Devils on Monday night.
Krejci hasn’t practiced since he played against the Edmonton Oilers last Thursday.
WILMINGTON – After the Bruins beat Edmonton on Thursday, Bruins center David Krejci talked about having to battle through the injury that had kept him out of the previous two games.
His own reported contract extension wasn’t the only thing Bruins coach Claude Julien was staying mum about Saturday after the Bruins beat the Ottawa Senators, 4-2.
Julien also offered little in the way of an update on injured center David Krejci.
Bruins center David Krejci became eligible to be activated from injured reserve on Sunday.
He practiced with his teammates, including new linemate Seth Griffith, and afterwards said every day he’s been feeling better.
Bruins center David Krejci did not practice Tuesday and his availability for the season opener against the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday is up in the air.
By signing center David Krejci to a six-year deal worth $7.25 million per season, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli has guaranteed that his four-man core is signed at least through 2014.
Center Patrice Bergeron, defenseman Zdeno Chara and goaltender Tuukka Rask were all locked up previously by Chiarelli. (more…)
If the Toronto Maple Leafs are going to slow down the hottest forward line in the NHL, it doesn’t appear they’re going to get any help from the injury bug.
David Krejci is supposed to be the Bruins’ No. 1 center.
He’s talked about serving in that role from around the time it looked like Marc Savard might never be the same right through present day. And for long stretches of the last several years, Krejci has been that player.
Center David Krejci famously led the entire NHL in playoff scoring during the 2011 run to the Stanley Cup championship.
But the way things started that postseason, Krejci was nearly a goat instead of a hero in those playoffs.
Injuries and ineffectiveness finally forced Bruins coach Claude Julien to break up the David Krejci’s line with Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton to start Thursday night’s game.
Krejci started the night with Daniel Paille on his left instead of Lucic and finished with Tyler Seguin skating that wing opposite Horton for the third period. The new combinations failed to pay off as the Bruins came up a goal short, 2-1, to the New York Islanders at TD Garden.
The Bruins practiced hard Sunday coming of their 2-1 loss in Montreal Saturday night.
Coach Claude Julien continued to change his line combinations after he made a first-period switch against the Habs. But there was still no combination featuring Czech Republic natives David Krejci and Jaromir Jagr.
It took the Bruins more than 40 minutes to wake up and support the yeoman efforts of goaltender Anton Khudobin Sunday night.
When David Krejci and his linemates finally came to life, the center recorded a goal and an assist and the Bruins had a 2-0 win that pulled them back within one point of Montreal for first place in the Northeast Division.
