Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy told reporters after Sunday’s practice that center David Krejci is nursing a “very minor” injury and is likely to play Game 2 for the B’s against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday.
Krejci missed the Bruins’ skate on Sunday, along with goaltender Tuukka Rask and defenseman Kevan Miller. But all three players are expected to be active for the B’s in Game 2 at Amalie Arena.
“Krejci has a very minor injury, so he, Kevan Miller and Tuukka [Rask] we decided to give them maintenance days,” said Cassidy, via NBC Sports Boston’s Joe Haggerty. “They’re fine. I don’t anticipate that they’re going to miss tomorrow. They should be ready to go.”
Krejci assisted on Rick Nash’s goal in the Bruins’ 6-2 win over the Lightning in Game 1 on Saturday. He was a plus-1 and led his line with 16:38 of ice time.
