Julien: Krejci 'fine' after leaving ice in pain

BOSTON -- The Boston Bruins' David Krejci appeared to have suffered some sort of upper-body injury during Saturday’s 3-0 win over the Philadelphia Flyers, but coach Claude Julien said the forward is fine and will be ready for the next game.

“It was just a little maintenance here and there,” Julien said. “He wasn’t ready for the start of the third, so he’s fine. He’ll be fine tomorrow and he’ll be fine the day after. It’s all good.”

In the middle of the second period, Krejci dropped his stick and quickly skated off the ice, looking to be in obvious pain. Team doctors and trainers tended to him down the runway behind the bench.

Teammate Gregory Campbell replaced Krejci for one shift before he was able to return. Krejci finished the period, but missed the first five minutes of the third period. He was able to finish the game.
