David Krejci expected to play in Game 2

Bruins center David Krejci [1] did not practice Friday, a day after he was hit in the back with a pane of glass following Chris Kelly [2]‘s game-winning goal in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals. Krejci said he was not tested for a concussion, and that he will play in Game 2 Saturday despite some neck pain.

“I’ve got a little sore neck, but other than that I’m good and I’ll play tomorrow,” he said.

Krejci, who led all players with 12 goals and 23 points last postseason, was celebrating with his teammates in the Washington zone when the glass fell on him.

“I guess fans got kind of carried away from the Kels goal, and it just happened,” he said. “Glass fell.”

Added Krejci: “I looked, like ‘What happened?’ because I didn’t expect that, so I looked at what happened. Then I got up, skated away, and that’s about it.”

Bruins coach Claude Julien [3] said after the practice that though Krejci was supposed to practice Friday until the pain kept him out, the center is “scheduled to play” Saturday.

Krejci also had stitches on his philtrum as a result from a high stick from Capitals forward Jay Beagle in the first period.
