If the Bruins fail to make the playoffs, one reason will be the amount of time David Krejci was not in the lineup this season due to injury.
He is a very important piece to the Bruins, and his absence for two prolonged stretches due to knee and groin injuries really hampered the Bruins' offense. Krejci is a terrific real and fantasy forward but his durability is at best questionable. Take this to account next draft day. Apr 11 - 9:02 AM

David Krejci started Wednesday's game against Washington between Milan Lucic and David Pastrnak.

Pastrnak was moved out for Brett Connolly after just a couple of shifts and in the third period Krejci was back on the wing with Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand. He finished the game with 14:44 of ice time and a minus-2 rating. Krejci has no goals and three assists in seven games since returning to the lineup.
Apr 9 - 8:35 AM

David Krejci was back at center during Wednesday's practice.

He was placed between Carl Soderberg and Loui Eriksson during the session after playing four games as a right winger since his return from a partially torn MCL. Krejci had two assists in his first game back, but he hasn't earned a point in his last three matches. It looks like he'll be back in the middle on Thursday versus Detroit.

David Krejci felt OK as a right winger in his return to the lineup on Thursday.

"There's things I still have to work on as a winger," he said. "It's a little different, but I thought I had a decent game. I know I can do much more, but you know what? That's why we're going to have a good practice tomorrow, we're going to work on some things that I thought today that I need to work on." He played alongside Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand in Boston's 3-2 overtime loss to Anaheim and he picked up a pair of assists during his 3:23 of power-play time.
Mar 27 - 8:29 AM

David Krejci's two assists were not enough to fuel Boston past Anaheim on Thursday night as the Bruins lost 3-2.

The 28-year-old broke a four-game pointless drought and raised his production output to 28 points in 39 games in his return to the lineup from a partially torn MCL. An Ottawa loss means the Bruins are still tied with the Senators for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
Mar 27 - 1:20 AM

Coach Claude Julien called David Krejci "probable" to play Thursday.

He will take part in the pregame warmup and will be a game-time decision. He has been practicing on the wing alongside Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand for the past few skates, so look for him to return to the fold in that role.
Mar 26 - 11:05 AM

David Krejci skated at right wing alongside Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron again on Wednesday.

He also took injured defenseman Dougie Hamilton's spot on the top power-play unit. It looks like he'll be back in the lineup from a partially torn MCL on Thursday night. We'll keep you posted as his return hasn't been confirmed yet.

David Krejci (knee) isn't sure if he'll be back on Thursday.

"It felt good today so we'll see," Krejci said after Tuesday's session. "No one likes to practice. Everyone likes to play games. I've been practicing enough. If I feel good enough and I can help the team, then I'll be back." He skated with Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand, with Daniel Paille also taking turns on the line.
Mar 25 - 8:32 AM

David Krejci (knee) remains day-to-day.

Krejci might be ready for Thursday's game. The Bruins could certainly use all the help they can get as they've slipped below Ottawa in the Wild Card race. He has seven goals and 26 points in 38 contests in 2014-15.
Mar 24 - 1:06 PM

David Krejci (knee) could be in the lineup on Thursday against Anaheim if he feels he's ready to return.

"I think, right now, it's going to be up to his decision, when he feels ready to play," coach Claude Julien said. Krejci missed his 15th consecutive game on Sunday with a partially torn MCL.
Mar 23 - 10:38 AM

David Krejci will not be in the Bruins' lineup when they take on the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday.

There were reports saying that Krejci could return from his knee injury at some point this weekend, but that doesn't look like it will materialize. Krejci should be considered day-to-day right now.
Mar 22 - 4:20 PM

When David Krejci returns to the Boston lineup it could be as a right winger.

He has been practicing on the right wing the last two days with different linemates. Although it is not clear if Krejci will be able to suit up Saturday night against the Panthers, his return to the lineup is imminent. What is clear is that Bruins' coach Claude Julien is very happy about the way Ryan Spooner has been playing alongside Milan Lucic and David Pastrnak and that he is not ready to make any changes with that unit to accommodate the return of Krejci. Krejci might initially play alongside Patrice Bergeron, which is not the worst place to be. Get ready to activate him.
Mar 21 - 9:52 AM

David Krejci (knee) could be back in the lineup on Saturday.

He sat out for a 13th straight time on Thursday, but he took part in the optional morning skate again. Krejci's 2014-15 season has been derailed by injuries. He's skated in 38 games and he's posted 26 points.
Mar 20 - 8:05 AM

David Krejci (knee) practiced again on Wednesday and he'll travel with his teammates on their upcoming three-game road trip.

He skated with Ryan Spooner and Milan Lucic during the session, while taking some contact. Krejci should be considered doubtful to return Thursday, but he is a possibility to play as early as this weekend.
Mar 18 - 4:15 PM

David Krejci (knee) was on the ice for Tuesday's morning skate.

It was his first session with his teammates since he suffered a torn MCL. There's a chance that he could be ready to return this weekend when Boston plays a pair of games in Florida versus the Panthers and Lightning.
