David Krejci feeling ‘pretty good’ after hit from Marc-Andre Bergeron

TAMPA — The Bruins had what looked like another trip to the quiet room on their hands in the first period of Thursday’s 2-0 win in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals. This time, it was David Krejci, who was rocked in the neutral zone by Marc-Andre Bergeron after receiving a pass.
Luckily for the B’s, Claude Julien won’t need to read the same “protocol” line to the media that he used the last couple of weeks to describe Patrice Bergeron. Krejci did not play for the remaining minute and a half of the period, but he remained on the bench and played his line’s first shift of the second period.
“I was a little sore, but I feel pretty good,” Krejci said following the game.
Krejci didn’t take issue with the hit, which earned Bergeron an elbowing penalty, and his teammates seemed to feel the same way. The first-line center did not see a replay of the hit, but said he doesn’t need to.
“I’m fine,” Krejci said. “I don’t think I have to look at it. I’m sure I’m going to see it. The guys told me that the guy just came off the bench. I didn’t even see him. They gave me a little heads up, so I got a little ready for it. If they didn’t give me a heads up on the bench, then I would get hit and in a relaxed body and it’d be maybe way worse. But I feel fine.”
Krejci scored his team-leading seventh goal of the postseason earlier in the first, and it proved to be the game-winner.
