Krejci going full-tilt at practice during B’s camp

WILMINGTON — Bruins coach Claude Julien  wasn’t ready to announce when B’s center David Krejci  would get into his first game action — or play during the exhibition season — but did give an update on the 23-year-old center coming off surgery for an impingement in his right hip.
Krejci is enduring a full practice workload with the rest of the team and taking part in all contact drills. Julien indicated that things are going well for the center, and Krejci estimated he had a “10 percent chance” of being ready for NHL  opening night against the Washington Capitals  on Oct. 1.
“What I can answer is that he’s getting better and better, and everything that’s going on is positive,” said Julien, who indicated that the B’s training staff hasn’t yet given him full clearance to play in games. “I can give you a date as far as when he’s ready to play in a game, but he’s practicing full-out and that bodes well. He’s taking contact and he’s taking part in full practices.”
–Marco Sturm  was off the ice today for a scheduled maintenance day as he works his way back to full health with a surgically repaired left knee. Sturm was at Ristuccia Arena to take part in off-ice workouts and won’t be making the trip to Columbus with the B’s traveling party.
–The lineup for Tuesday night’s game in Columbus includes: Marc Savard , Patrice Bergeron , Mark Recchi , Johnny Boychuk , Drew Fata, Andrew Ference , Chuck Kobasew , Zach Hamill, Drew Larman, Milan Lucic , Derek Morris , Mark Recchi, Guillame LeFebvre, Vladimir Sobotka, Mark Stuart , Blake Wheeler , Shawn Thornton , Trent Whitfield and Andy Wozniewski. Tuukka Rask  and Dany Sabourin will both make the trip, but Sabourin is expected to get the full 60 minutes between the pipes against the Blue Jackets .
