Critical update released on David Krejci

The veteran has been out of action.



The Boston Bruins have been without the services of veteran center David Krejci for their last three games in their Round 1 Stanley Cup Playoffs series against the Florida Panthers, which has now lasted much longer than just about anyone could have guessed.

The two teams are headed back to FLA Live Arena in Sunrise, FLA after the Panthers were able to stun the Bruins on their home ice for the second time in the series, this time in the form of an overtime victory following a brutal turnover behind the net by goaltender Linus Ullmark. 

Krejci, who has not suited up since Game 2 last week thanks to an upper body injury, will be with the team as they travel back down south - though whether or not he actually suits up in tomorrow night's Game 6 remains in question, according to head coach Jim Montgomery.

"Krejci is traveling with us, and has a couple more boxes to check before we can say he's a player," Montgomery explained. 

The Bruins did get captain Patrice Bergeron back for Game 5; he had previously missed the first four games of the series.
