He’s not officially back yet, but David Krejci is getting closer to returning to the Bruins’ lineup.
The 29-year-old center resumed skating recently, and he practiced with teammates today. He hasn’t played a game since Dec. 27 when he suffered an upper-body injury against Ottawa.
“At this point, where I’m at right now, it’s going to be days,” Krejci told the Boston Globe. “We’ll see how I feel tomorrow. Hopefully better. We’ll see how it feels tomorrow in warmups.”
The Bruins play in Montreal tomorrow. If he’s not ready for the Habs — and it seems unlikely that he will be — Boston hosts Vancouver Thursday and Columbus Saturday.
The B’s have gone 4-4-1 in the nine games that Krejci has missed.
