  • The impact didn’t appear to be too significant but it caused David Krejci considerable pain immediately and as he sat on the bench. The initial inclination from the announcers of the game was that Krejci could have potentially suffered a shoulder or wrist injury. After heading to the dressing room for further evaluation, Bruins players and fans collectively breathed a sigh of relief when Krejci returned and took a subsequent shift on the Bruins second power play of the night. The Bruins cannot afford to lose David Krejci for any amount of time this season as his 27 points pace the team.

    David Kreci has been absolutely dominant for the Bruins this season with 27 points in 27 games including seven in his last 10. Krejci has never finished a season with a point-per-game, but the surprising surge from Boston’s offense this season as well as a resurgence from Loui Eriksson — who has become a fixture on Krejci’s wing this season — makes that point-per-game accolade a very realistic possibility for the 29 year old center this season.

    The Bruins ended up winning their first game in eight attempts versus the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday.  The Bruins entered the game with a chance to gain some momentum leading up to the 2016 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic which will be played between the two rival franchises at Gillete Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts on January 1st. The Bruins held the Canadiens to only one goal through the first two periods of play, but also only got credit for seven shots in both the first and second periods. The Bruins are allowed to have an off-night in terms of shots-for, but they chose a bad night against their rivals in the Montreal Canadiens. Fortunately, they were able to come away with the victory after beating the Montreal Canadiens by a score of 3-1. The only Canadiens goal came off of a weird bounce in front of the Bruins net which was credited to Paul Byron. Tuukka Rask was exceptional all night, which was a refreshing change of pace after his usual play versus the Montreal Canadiens.

    The Bruins will be riding a high going into their next game against the Florida Panthers on Saturday at home.
