Chris Kelly scored his seventh goal of the season Friday night in Boston's 5-2 loss to Vancouver.

It was a twisted wrister from the top of the circles that beat Ryan Miller through a screen, briefly giving Boston hope of a come back. Alas, it was not meant to be. Kelly put forth three shots, a block and a hit, while winning each of his draws during his 12:54 of ice time, including 2:30 on the kill. Kelly now has 25 points this season.

Chris Kelly scored the game-winning goal in Saturday's 3-1 win over Los Angeles.

Kelly tipped in a Carl Soderberg shot to give Boston a 2-1 lead. The puck came out of the net so quickly that the officials originally waved it off on the ice, but a quick review changed their minds. Kelly has six goals and 22 points in 48 games this season.

Chris Kelly had his five-game scoring streak snapped Saturday night.

Going into action Saturday night against Columbus, Kelly had registered a point in five consecutive games, a career high. He has fit in nicely on a line with Carl Soderberg and Loui Eriksson, although the unit was terrible in the 6-2 to Blue Jackets Saturday taking a combined one shot on goal.

Chris Kelly registered a pair of assists in Tuesday's 5-3 win over Nashville.

In a last minute line up change, Chris Kelly has been scratched against Montreal on Saturday night with Matt Lindblad drawing in his place.

No reason has been given just yet on why Kelly has been scratched, but we'll keep you posted on the latest as it's delivered. For now, Lindblad gets into his third career game and first career momentous occasion.

Chris Kelly will continue to fill in alongside Milan Lucic and Seth Griffith with David Krejci out of the lineup.

Krejci is expected to miss Wednesday's game in Toronto and Thursday's contest at Montreal. Kelly hasn't earned a point in his last seven games.

With David Krejci missing practice on Sunday, Chris Kelly centred a line with Seth Griffith and Milan Lucic.

Krejci has been hampered by a lower-body injury throughout the season, and may not be able to play in the Bruins' next game. If he can't go, it looks like Kelly will take his spot on the top line against New Jersey on Monday.

The Boston Bruins are not making any excuses for their slow start to the 2014-15 NHL season.

The Bruins have recorded one win and only three goals for in three games so far this season, and they know there is no excuse for their lackluster start. ""It’s a team-wide thing, it’s not just a few guys. You guys can see it just as much as we can. It’s not a passing thing or a positioning thing, it’s a working thing," said forward Chris Kelly. "It doesn’t matter who you’re playing with. You could play with two total strangers, and all you have to do is go out and work hard."

Chris Kelly netted the game-winning goal late for Boston in a 2-1 victory over Philadelphia in the Bruins' home opener Wednesday night.

He scored at the 18:09 mark of the third period. Kelly produced a mere nine goal and 18 points in 57 games last season, so getting off to a better start was important to him. He skated on a line with Carl Soderberg and Loui Eriksson in the match.

Chris Kelly, who is in Boston's camp competing for a job, is not 100% healthy yet.

He is still feeling residual effects of back surgery he underwent in May. That said, Kelly is trying not to let them slow him down. The Bruins need to shed some salary in order to sign unrestricted free agents Torey Krug and Reilly Smith and stay under the cap. Trading Kelly and his $3 million contract is one way to achieve that goal. It is not clear if Kelly's current health status will hinder the Bruins should they choose to move him.
