Bruins losing streak hits six games, Krejci leaves game due to injury

Things are going from bad to worse for the Boston Bruins. They lost big in St. Louis on Friday, and that isn’t just reserved to the scoreboard.

Forward David Krejci left the game early in the second period and did not return due to an undisclosed injury. And while the Bruins allowed only 15 shots on goal, they lost by a final score of 5-1 after a disastrous second period.

“Don’t know quite the severity of it so we’ll have to see here,” said Bruins head coach Claude Julien, as per the club’s Twitter account.

Malcolm Subban, who was making his NHL debut in net for the Bruins, was pulled after allowing three goals on six shots. He eventually entered back into the game late in the third period, when the result was all but official.

The Bruins entered the game with a one-point lead on the Florida Panthers for the final Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference. But they’ve now lost six consecutive games — managing single points in two of those — as this five-game road trip through the Western Conference continues.

The Bruins are in Chicago to face the Blackhawks on Sunday.
