The Bruins have been lucky when it comes to injuries this season, but that trend seems to be reversing a bit. First, the Bruins lost center Chris Kelly indefinitely with a broken tibia suffered last week. Now the Bruins are hoping center David Krejci avoids joining Kelly. Krejci left Sunday’s loss to the Penguins with an apparent knee or leg injury after he took a Johnny Boychuk slap shot to the right leg. The center jumped in the air to try and avoid being hit with the shot, but the slapper went high and hit the airborne Krejci. He felt to the ice, and lay there for a few moments. The Bruins training staff came out to tend to Krejci, before Boychuk and Milan Lucic had to help him off the ice. Krejci wasn’t putting any pressure on the injured leg. Unsurprisingly, he did not return. Bruins coach Claude Julien didn’t have much of an update on Krejci after the game, flatly stating that he didn’t know (or perhaps more accurately wasn’t going to share) any news on Krejci’s injury.

Ty Anderson: Spooner gets shot with Krejci-less B's in Winnipeg

Giving an already shorthanded B's team another obstacle on a road trip that began with...

Bruins Still Waiting for All Four Lines to Click As Penguins Expose Vulnerabilities of Inconsistent Play (Video)

Claude Julien and the Bruins have a reputation for rolling lines and counting on each respective unit to bring something to the table each game. Far too often this year, however, it’s been one line shouldering most of the production while the others lag behind. Each forward line has come up big for the B’s in a game or two, but it’s been a rare occurrence that all of them...

Ryan Spooner Has Golden Opportunity to Make Impact in David Krejci’s Absence (Video)

Most up-and-coming hockey stars spend their first few NHL games playing limited minutes on the third or fourth line. That’s not the case for Bruins prospect Ryan Spooner, who will start on Boston’s first line tonight in just his second big-league appearance.

RECAP: Boston Plays Tough but Outworked. Bruins Lose.

  Rough loss for the Bruins in what can be looked as one of those "scheduled losses." Playing the Pens on the road on the tail end of back-to-back games twice in one week is awful scheduling by the NHL and just plain ol' tough titties for Boston. It was a hard played game by both sides. Not many mistakes were made but the ones that were cost the Bruins a potential...

PREVIEW 28: Bruins vs. Jets -- The Return of Spoonman

  The Bruins are in the frigid tundra that is Winnipeg to face the Jets tonight, not that it's warm and sunny here in Boston either. Spring? Never heard of it. Boston will 99.9% most likley go without David Krejci today. He's listed DTD with what we're assuming is just a sweet bruise on his knee. The team yesterday said there's no busted bones so that'...
