Krejci will play ‘if he’s feeling good after warm-up’

Mar 21, 2013, 12:46 PM EST

What looked at first to be a serious injury may only end up costing David Krejci one missed game. (And a good deal of pain.)

According to Bruins coach Claude Julien, Krejci will play tonight in Ottawa “if he’s feeling good after warm-up.”

On Sunday, Krejci was hit in the leg by a shot from teammate Johnny Boychuk. The 26-year-old center had to be helped off the ice and did not return to the game. He then missed Tuesday’s 3-1 loss in Winnipeg.

Krejci is tied for second on the Bruins with 24 points.

Meanwhile, Boston has lost two straight games in regulation. The B’s haven’t gone three straight games without a win all season.

    At first, it looked like amputation was the only option.

    Another case of embellishment Clod?

      You have to be around the age of 15. Only way you could be this pathetic.

    Yup, he clearly embellished so that Boychuk would get a penalty.

    I’ve never been hit by a 100+ mph hockey pick but I imagine embellishing the pain would be the last thing I’d be thinking about.

    He dodged a bullet- I can’t believe he didn’t break something in that play. I’ll bet that bruise is something to see, though.
