David Krejci's status for Game 6 against Ottawa is unclear.

David Krejci is more confident after a solid practice session on Tuesday.

He was curious to see how he would feel after he made his return to the lineup on Monday in Game 3 against Ottawa. "I feel good, feeling good about the practice and I'm ready to go for (Game 4 tonight)," Krejci said. "I felt good so why not? It was a good practice, short, hard. I felt like that’s what I needed." He sat out the first matches of the playoffs with an upper-body injury. Krejci was reunited with David Pastrnak in the second period, which should give the Bruins two dangerous lines going into Wednesday's contest.

David Krejci (upper body) is back in the Bruins lineup for Game 3 against Ottawa on Monday night.

Krejci missed the first two games of the series. His return gives the Bruins a huge boost down the middle. He skated on a line with Drew Stafford and David Backes during the pre-game warmup.

David Krejci (upper body) will be a game-time decision for Monday night in Game 3 against Ottawa.

It looks like he will return to the lineup, though. Krejci took part in the morning skate between David Backes and Drew Stafford and he worked on the power play.
Apr 17 - 11:44 AM

David Krejci is still listed as day-to-day with an upper-body injury.

The talented pivot did not play in Game 2's 4-3 OT loss, but seems to be getting closer to a return to action. The Bruins are hoping he will be able to dress for Game 3 Monday. Stay tuned for further updates.

David Krejci (upper body) won't be available in Game 2 on Saturday, per coach Bruce Cassidy.

That's not surprising given that Krejci didn't practice on Friday, but it's still a blow to the Bruins. They did manage to take Game 1 without him, but there's no question that missing Krejci makes things more challenging for Boston.

David Krejci (upper body) didn't take part in Friday's practice.

Krejci wasn't able to play in Game 1 on Wednesday. Interim coach Bruce Cassidy was hoping to get Krejci back for Saturday's game, but if he's not practicing yet then that seems unlikely.
Apr 14 - 1:27 PM

Interim coach Bruce Cassidy hopes to have David Krejci back in the lineup on Saturday from an upper-body injury.

"We're off today, everyone gets their treatment, and then tomorrow we'll have a better idea when we hit the ice," said Cassidy on Thursday when talking about all of Boston's injured players. "Hopefully they'll be able to go, but until they get on the ice and are able to practice, we don't know." There was no update on Krejci specifically after he missed Game 1 on Wednesday.
Apr 14 - 9:55 AM

David Krejci (upper body) is listed as day-to-day.

Krejci was held out for two days of practice for what the Bruins called "maintenance," but interim coach Bruce Cassidy expected him to play. "I'm an optimist and it didn't work out," said Cassidy after Wednesday's game. "He's continuing to nurse an upper-body injury, so tomorrow, he'll be off. The whole group will be off. So hopefully he can get out there and test it out and go from there." It looked like he would be available after he took part in the morning skate and in the pregame warmups between Drew Stafford and David Pastrnak, but he was made a late scratch.
Apr 13 - 8:44 AM

David Krejci (upper body) isn't in the lineup for Game 1 on Wednesday.

Krejci's absence from the game came as a surprise as his injury was revealed just before the start of play. As a result, Sean Kuraly has drawn into the Bruins' lineup. Boston was already missing defensemen Torey Krug and Brandon Carlo so to be without Krejci too is a huge blow.
Apr 12 - 7:08 PM

David Krejci feels the Bruins match up well against Ottawa despite the fact that the Senators won all four meetings this season.

"Our record of 0-4 [this season] doesn't really tell the real story, I think," Krejci said after last Thursday night's shootout loss. "Other than the first game in their building, I think we could have gotten at least two games for sure, especially at home. So, if it happens that we play them [in the playoffs], I feel confident in this team that we can get the job done." Krejci had one goal in four matches versus the Senators during the regular season. He posted 23 goals and 54 points in 82 games during the 2016-17 campaign.
Apr 10 - 8:23 AM

David Krejci contributed two assists in Boston's 4-0 win over Tampa Bay on Tuesday night.

He earned helpers on goals by Drew Stafford (game winner) and David Pastrnak (empty net) in the contest. Krejci has notched two goals and four points in his last five outings.
Apr 5 - 9:54 AM

David Krejci matched his career high in goals during Saturday's 5-2 win over the Panthers.

The talented pivot is now up to 23 markers and 52 points through 78 games. That's impressive considering he got off to a slow start following off-season hip surgery.
