B’s coach Claude Julien told reporters Monday that the forward is day-to-day right now with a leg injury after taking a Johnny Boychuk slap shot to the right leg on Sunday afternoon in Pittsburgh. The puck appeared to hit Krejci just above the knee, and he needed to be helped off the ice. He did not return to that game, but he did travel with the club to Winnipeg.
That's a sign of relief. The Bruins should be cautious with this and perhaps give Krejci a couple of days off if needed. They do face Winnipeg, Ottawa and Toronto, and the Bruins can beat these teams without Krejci if they play a more consistent game of hockey.
