Torey Krug dropped the gloves with Anaheim's Chris Stewart on Tuesday night.

"I started it," said Krug, who stands 5-foot-9 and weighs 186 pounds. "He didn't want to fight me. It's a mismatch. But at the end of the day, I don't know, I didn't like what happened there and I got a little crazy. He's a big guy. H'’s done his fair share of fighting. He didn't want to fight a guy like myself. It happened. He said, ‘Good job,’ and that was that." Stewart checks in at 6-foot-2 and he weighs 231 pounds.

Torey Krug made a key save in Boston's 3-2 victory over Toronto on Saturday.

Late in the third period, the Leafs caught Tuukka Rask out of position, but rather than having an open net, Krug got between the pipes prior to the shot and managed to stop it. "He’s bailed me out plenty of times over my career, so right place, right time. It was nothing more than that," said Krug. "I actually thought it was a good decision for Tuukks to come out of the net and I just knew that if the puck were to be turned over someone would have to be in front there." Krug also contributed an assist on Saturday.

Torey Krug had an assist on the power play in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to Philadelphia.

The offensive defender hasn't scored a goal since Dec. 5 and he has just three on the year, but he has racked up 121 shots in 41 games this season.

Torey Krug picked up two assists in his return to the lineup on Tuesday against Ottawa.

He sat out Sunday's game with a lower-body injury after he was injured on Saturday. Both of his helpers came on the power play, which went 4-for-7 in the match. Loui Eriksson, Max Talbot and Ryan Spooner earned two assists each in the win as well.

Torey Krug will pair with Adam McQuaid as Boston's second defensive pairing against Ottawa on Tuesday night.

Well, that was a quick recovery. Krug has posted 14 assists, 17 points, 27 hits, and 52 blocks through 34 games so far this season. However it's worth noting he's put up just nine points over his last 24 games, or two months since his eight-point October.

Torey Krug (lower body) hasn't been ruled out of Tuesday's game yet.

He was on the ice Monday and could still be a possibility to play, but he is considered day-to-day with a lower-body injury that he sustained on Saturday.

Torey Krug is day-to-day with an undisclosed ailment.

He was injured Saturday and wasn't available to play Sunday against Ottawa as a result.

Torey Krug didn't travel with Boston up to Ottawa for Sunday's match, and Joe Morrow will likely step in.

It's a one-game roadie for the Bruins, so we wouldn't be over react to that. We'd be mightily considered that he possibly has a facial or head injury, but there's no confirmation just yet. Krug has posted three goals and 17 points in 34 games with 52 blocks to his credit, which we imagine doesn't soften the blow.

Torey Krug's undisclosed issue might be a facial or head injury.

Krug left Saturday's game in the third period and the Bruins didn't offer any details about his status following the game. However, Krug was the victim of a high stick to the face at the end of his final shift of the night, so it seems reasonable to believe that's the source of his injury. Krug is an important part of the Bruins' defense so it would naturally be a big problem for them if he misses an extended period of time.

Troey Krug has left Saturday's tilt with Buffalo and won't return.

No word yet on what's ailing the young phenom blue liner, but he only played 5:03 with two shots on net before exiting. We'll keep you posted on his status as it develops.

Torey Krug has been racking up blocked shots this season.

He sits third on the Bruins with 52 blocks in 33 games. Last season, Krug turned aside 68 shots in 78 games and he's on pace to shatter that mark. "It has always been something I've taken a lot of pride in," Krug said. "Maybe my first couple of years I didn't have as many chances to block shots. Maybe now it's because I'm playing more in the penalty kill and playing against top lines and I have more opportunities to block shots. It's an art for sure and it is not all necessarily taking a shot off the body. It is also deflecting a shot into stands. That is improving defensively and that's something I've been trying to do." Krug has taken plenty of shots lately, but he doesn't have a point in five games. He has three goals and 14 assists on the year.

Torey Krug scored in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Vancouver Canucks.

Krug's goal at the 7:03 mark of the first period gave Boston a 2-0 lead. Kevan Miller and David Krejci picked up the assists on Krug's third goal of the season. Krug has six goals and 10 points in 16 games in '15-16.
Sun, Dec 6, 2015 12:18:00 PM

Torey Krug scored his second goal of the season in Wednesday's 3-2 shootout loss to Edmonton.

His shot deflected off Oilers defenseman Andrej Sekera and went into the net. Krug has a goal and an assist in his last two games, but points have been hard to come by for him lately. The offensive blueliner has produced 14 points in 23 matches this year.
Thu, Dec 3, 2015 07:20:00 AM

Torey Krug scored his first goal of the season in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings.

Krug scored the third of three second period goals for Boston. The 24-year-old has one goal, 11 points, a plus-1 rating and 10 penalty minutes in 16 games this season. He's worth starting in standard fantasy leagues.
