Torey Krug has extended his point streak to three games with a goal in Thursday's 2-1 shootout win over Carolina.
Krug is now up to two goals and 11 points in 24 games this season. Now through the first 265 games of his career, the talented blue liner has 32 goals and 136 points and a shooting percentage of 4.5%. I mention the latter because his newest goal brings his percentage up to 2.7% for the season. He should regress to the mean, but they may be few and far between. Dec 1 - 11:18 PM

Torey Krug feels like he is getting closer to getting back on track.

"It's frustrating because you want to be in midseason form already, and that's not the case," Krug said. "I'm not where I want to be, but I'm really close. I can feel it. There were parts of [Wednesday's] game against the Rangers where I felt like my old self, grabbing the puck, skating with it, wheeling, even joining the rush at times. The first six games, I don't think I joined the rush once because I was so tired from breaking the puck out every shift. It's coming back. It's a natural progression." He is still looking for his first point of the season after coming back from off-season shoulder surgery.

It appears that Torey Krug is still trying to find his game after off-season shoulder surgery.

Krug has yet to register a point and is minus two over the Bruins' first five games. He is also being beaten to pucks in the defensive zone and hasn't been able to get his shots through during the Boston power play. Krug is not using his shoulder injury recovery as an excuse, though. "There's no consistency in my game for whatever reason. I've gotta make sure I'm working to get better, so that my teammates can count on me every single shift," said Krug. "It’s not there right now, and I’ll take the blame for that. I’ve just got to work through it." We expect Krug to turn it around eventually.

He may not participate in scrimmages either, but he will be on the ice with his teammates. Krug is excited to play Boston's new uptempo style for the 2016-17 season. "[Julien] doesn't mean skating up and down the ice, because in the NHL, guys get up and down the ice in relatively similar speed, but he is talking about pace of the puck and movement as a five-man unit," said the mobile defender. "We can definitely move the puck better and hopefully our transition game will benefit from it. Faster thinking, faster execution, and your team seems faster in that regard."
