Boston Bruins: A Healthy David Krejci Getting It Done In Boston


There were a lot of questions about Boston Bruins forward David Krejci in the offseason. Would he be healthy? Would there be any lingering effects from the injuries that severely hampered his production last season? Could the 29-year old forward bounce back and have a solid season for the B’?

  • For the moment, it appears that the Czech forward has silenced all his critics with a solid early performance this season. He has fourteen points (seven goals) and he lead the team to victory last night. It was the B’s first home win of the season, and they did it in a commanding style.

    “He’s been unbelievable and…he plays like that every year. Sometimes it goes in, sometimes it doesn’t, but he’s such a dominant player in this league,” said Brad Marchand of the B’s top line center. “He’s able to slow the game down the way very few guys can do in this league and when he’s on you’ve got to watch him every shift. He’s very dangerous. He can create something beautiful out of nothing so it’s fun to watch him play.”

    David Krejci earned two more goals last night for the Black and Gold. He put in the first and the last goals for the Bruins in their 6-0 shellacking of a visibly tired Arizona Coyotes team. When Krejci gave the Bruins the early lead in the first, I sent this out on social media.

    Krejci for all his skill is just happy to contribute to the team. He’s making up for last season’s lackluster injury-filled season with a vengeance.  Currently he’s second in points and goals (behind Dallas Stars forward Jamie Benn), and he doesn’t mind being there.

    “I don’t really care,” said Krejci when asked about his current standing among NHL players. “I mean, it’s always nice when the puck goes in the net and when you see those points. But it’s a pretty good feeling that we’ve won four out of the last [five] games. It’s a good feeling in the room, so we’ve just got to keep it rolling.

    “[Leading the NHL in scoring] is not really my goal, but obviously I’ll take it. It’s nice to be up there, who knows for how long, but it is what it is. It’s going to be fun to come to the rink tomorrow because we won tonight. It’s fun when you win, it’s kind of not fun when you lose. But when you win it’s good, so we have to build on that and make sure that we keep this atmosphere for as long as we can.”

    Right now the Bruins are finally over the .500 mark with a 4-3-1 record. They’re in the middle of the pack when it comes to NHL teams overall, and the B’s are climbing in the rankings.  If the B’s win on Friday, they’ll be in third place in the Atlantic. The B’s are finally starting to look like a playoff contender team again, and a lot of credit has to be given to the B’s alternate captain who has so far been their best player on the ice this year.
