BOSTON — Two of the Bruins’ six Olympians returned to practice Monday morning at TD Garden. David Krejci  and Marco Sturm  were present, while the team expects Zdeno Chara , Tim Thomas , Patrice Bergeron , and Miroslav Satan to return to practice Tuesday morning.
Krejci spoke to reporters following practice and expressed his disappointment that the Czech Republic came away empty-handed and also talked about how hard it was to watch the championship game.
“I couldn’t watch it. I just watched overtime. It’s tough. It’s something I dreamed about ‘ an Olympic medal. It hurts every time I heard about the Olympics.”
Although Krejci came away from the Olympics disappointed, he was adamant about wanting to play in the 2014 Olympics in Russia. There have been reports that the NHL  will not allow its players to participate in the next Games. Krejci made it clear that he wants to play.
“I think they should play,” he said. “I think it’s the best tournament ever. If they don’t allow us to play it’s going to be very bad for hockey, but after what they saw I’m sure they’re going to find a way for all NHL  players to play.”
