David Krejci was in playoff form in Game 1. And in Game 2, he picked up right where he left off.
Krejci opened the scoring for the Bruins with 4:19 left in the first period of Game 2 against the Carolina Hurricanes, flinging a wrist shot from the high slot past goalie James Reimer on a B’s power play. Manning the point in the absence of David Pastrnak, who was deemed unfit to play for Game 2, Krejci paid immediate dividends.
Krejci also scored in Game 1. The Bruins out-shot the ‘Canes 13-1 with Krejci’s line on the ice in that game.
The Bruins led 1-0 after one period against the Hurricanes, despite being out-shot 7-6 in the opening frame.
