David Krejci appears to be fine after he fell awkwardly and got up slowly during the third period of Saturday's win at Philadelphia.

"It was kind of weird," Krejci said. "I kind of left my leg behind me and felt a little pinch. It didn't feel very good, but I took a short shift and took some time on the bench. It felt pretty good and it went away pretty quickly. I was happy about that." He has missed 20 games with a recurring groin injury this year, but it sounds like he is going to be OK here. Krejci has 18 points in 23 outings.

David Krejci assisted on both Boston Bruins goals as they lost 3-2 in OT to the Ottawa Senators on Saturday.

Krejci has four assists (one goal, three assists) in his past three games. The 28-year-old's play has been a rare bright side for Boston in a tough season, at least when he's been able to suit up.
Jan 3 - 4:03 PM

David Krejci factored into two goals for the Bruins in the team's 4-3 shootout loss to Toronto on Wednesday.

He got his fifth goal of the season when his centering pass banked off goalie Jonathan Bernier and defenseman Cody Franson. He was crashing the crease on Boston's third goal, which led to a game-tying tally by Torey Krug. However, Krejci didn't earn a point on that play and Boston couldn't complete the comback. He has 13 in 18 appearances this season.
Jan 1 - 9:36 AM

Bruins center David Krejci returned to the Boston lineup in Minnesota Wednesday night after missing a month because of a groin injury.

It was his first game since Nov. 18. Krejci fired one shot on goal in the Bruins' 3-2 overtime win over the Wild. He also had a minus-1 rating in 18:22 of ice time.

David Krejci will suit up for the Bruins on Wednesday against the Wild.

The Bruins center will be on the ice against the Wild Wednesday, so make sure to get him in your lineup. He was skating with Milan Lucic and Seth Griffith in warmups. In 11 games this season, Krejci has three goals and seven assists and will look to continue on his near point-per-game pace starting Wednesday. Matt Fraser will now move to the press box and serve as a healthy scratch to make room for Krejci.

David Krejci (groin) isn't on injured reserve, according to Boston's official website.

Coach Claude Julien called Krejci a "possibility" for Wednesday's game against Minnesota and it looks like he could be back if taking him off injured reserve is any indication. The pregame warmup should tell us more. Krejci has missed 17 of Boston's last 19 games because of a groin injury.

David Krejci (groin) will not return on Tuesday.

David Krejci (groin) will travel with the Bruins on their upcoming three-game road trip.

Boston will play in Nashville on Tuesday, Minnesota on Wednesday, and Winnipeg on Friday. Bruins coach Claude Julien expects Krejci to return before the end of the trip. Chris Kelly and Carl Soderberg have each centered Milan Lucic's line recently, but that job should go back to Krejci when he's healthy.

Boston still isn't sure when David Krejci will be back in the lineup, but he does think it will be soon.

"I have a general sense," Boston GM Peter Chiarelli said. "I think he'll be back shortly." Krejci has been sidelined for 16 of the last 18 games with a troublesome groin issue. He has been practicing regularly with the team. Stay tuned for updates.

Despite the fact David Krejci has practiced for five days in a row, his return date remains a mystery.

Krejci could return to action from a groin injury Saturday afternoon against the Senators or he could sit out another week. At this point the Bruins are mum on the topic. If we hear anything about when Krejci will be suiting up, we will pass it along.

David Krejci (groin) took part in his fourth consecutive practice on Friday.

Krejci skated on the top line with Milan Lucic and Loui Eriksson. It's not clear when Krejci will return to the Bruins' lineup, but it will probably be soon. When it happens it will be bad news for Carl Soderberg as he'll probably shift from the first to third line.

David Krejci (groin) is feeling much better, but it's still uncertain if he'll be cleared for game action to play in Thursday's game against Chicago.

He doesn't want to miss any more time because of a groin issue, so when he returns he's hoping he can put the injury behind him fully. "A hundred percent. It happened to me twice. It's in the back of my head," Krejci said. "It's not something that I would love to think about, but at the end of the day, when the decision comes that I can play, I'll obviously get a little nervous. But that's going to happen if I'm ready or close to being ready. It is what it is. I'm just going to work hard and try to get back and stay in the lineup." He has been limited to 11 games this season and he hasn't played since Nov. 18.

David Krejci (groin) participated in Tuesday's practice.

Krejci hasn't been cleared to rejoin the Bruins' lineup yet, so his status for Thursday's game remains up in the air. He's only played in two contests since the start of November.

Some whispers from sources have said that David Krejci has not made all that much progress in his recovery from a groin injury.

The Bruins' injured players skated together during the team's road trip, but apparently Krejci was limited in what he could do and how much of it he was able to do. We'll keep you posted on his status when we learn more. Krejci has missed 14 of the last 16 games because of a groin injury.
