David Krejci ‘day-to-day’ after missing Monday’s practice

David Krejci was one of nine Bruins to not take the ice for Monday’s practice in Winnipeg, according to the team’s Twitter feed. Krejci left Sunday’s 2-1 loss to the Penguins late in the third period after getting hit in the right knee with a Johnny Boychuk slapshot. He stayed on the ice as he was tended to by trainer Don DelNegro and put no pressure on his right leg as he was helped off.
Following the practice, Bruins coach Claude Julien told reporters that Krejci is “day-to-day,” and he did not indicate whether or not the first-line center would be able to play Tuesday against the Jets. Julien added that the B’s could potentially call a player up from Providence if Krejci isn’t ready to go.
Krejci’s entire line did not skate Monday, as Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton also sat out. The group of players not practicing Monday consisted of Krejci, Lucic, Horton, Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand, Zdeno Chara, Dennis Seidenberg, Andrew Ference and Boychuk.
