David Krejci to play in opener
|10.03.13 at 11:50 am ET|
The Bruins will have their new alternate captain in the lineup for Thursday’s season-opener against the Lightning, as David Krejci will be in the lineup after being questionable with back spasms.
Krejci was on the ice for morning skate centering his line with Milan Lucic and Jarome Iginla, while Carl Soderberg (left ankle) was once again absent and will not play Thursday. With Soderberg out, Jordan Caron will play left wing on the third line with Chris Kelly and Reilly Smith.
For the time being, the Bruins will not call up another forward from Providence.
