The Bruins returned to Warrior Ice Arena for this morning's skate, where several updates were shared concerning the injured players of the Boston Bruins. Of particular note was the status of veteran David Krejci.

Postseason Game 1 Status Unveiled

Although David Krejci has been absent from the Bruins' last six games due to a lower-body injury, head coach Jim Montgomery provided a significant update on the veteran's participation in the first game of the playoffs. Conor Ryan from Boston.com reported Montgomery's statement:
''He's a playoff only guy — that's what he told me.''

At 36, Krejci has had an impressive season after spending a year in his home country, Czechia. In 70 games, the center accumulated 16 goals, 40 assists, and a +23 rating, with an average of 17:12 time on ice per game.
Krejci's return to the lineup is crucial for the Bruins as he has consistently delivered exceptional performances for Boston. Specifically, he played a significant role in the last three instances when Boston reached the Stanley Cup Final:
(Rank among Bruins players)
2019: 4 goals and 12 assists in 24 games (6th)
2013: 9 goals and 17 assists in 22 games (1st)
2011: 12 goals and 11 assists in 25 games (1st)
Krejci's presence in the lineup for game one could be a game-changer for Montgomery's team. However, his health remains the top priority.
