David Krejci: ‘We’ve got to stay in the moment’

BEDFORD — No one has had a better or bigger impact on the Bruins in these playoffs than David Krejci [1]. The center on the Bruins’ top line leads the NHL [2] in playoff scoring this season.

He has eight goals and 12 assists for 20 points. He did it again on Monday night in Game 2 with the third goal of the contest. He knows full well that a 2-0 series lead means nothing. He also led the playoffs in scoring two years ago with 23 points.

Speaking of 2011, he knows that the Bruins were down 0-2 in the first round after losing the first two games at home. He knows the Bruins came back and won a pair of games in Montreal to tie the series.

“The past few years I think we’€™ve been up 2-0 in a series,” Krejci said. “We’€™ve been down 2-0, and it went either way, so I think we’€™ve learned from that and we’€™ve got to stay in the moment and just take it game by game.

“We’€™re going to have to play even better than we did because they’€™re going to be desperate. It’€™s a really important game. It’€™s a big difference if it’€™s 3-0 for us or 2-1 for us, so it’€™s going to be a big game. The game is going to start from 0-0 so we’€™ve got to be ready to get off [with] a good start.”

So far, the best forward in this series is Krejci, not Sidney Crosby [3], and it’s not close. Krejci has three goals with a plus-3 rating. Crosby has no points and is a minus-3.

“We’€™re just going on the faceoff and trying to win,” Krejci said. “It doesn’€™t matter who you go against [in faceoffs]. Obviously you know who you’€™re going against, but your mindset is to win and do whatever it takes to win the faceoff.”
