Yes, it looks like David Krejci is back when the Boston Bruins need him the most … only in an unfamiliar spot.
(No, that isn’t meant to be a reference to Boston beginning Thursday night outside of the East’s playoff picture.)
Early on, it looks like the Czech-born center will play at right wing. One would assume that some of that discomfort is ameliorated by the fact that his linemates are Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand, though.
Krejci, 28, won’t see a lot of margin of error as he jumps back into action for the first time since getting hurt his knee on Feb. 20. The Bruins need every bit of help they can get in chasing the red-hot Ottawa Senators and face a tough opponent in the Anaheim Ducks tonight.
At least it appears that they have (almost) all hands on deck, though.
