Game three against the Panthers marks a historic moment for the Boston Bruins as they face a situation in the playoffs they haven't encountered in 20 years.

With Patrice Bergeron already not accompanying the team, the Bruins shared that fellow veteran David Krejci would also be a last-minute scratch prior to Friday night's showdown.

It's Been Awhile

According to Sportsnet Stats, this is an extremely rare occurrence:
For the first time since April 17, 2003 (Game 5 of Eastern Conference Quarter-Finals vs Devils), a #NHLBruins playoff match will not feature either Patrice Bergeron or David Krejci in the lineup.

Back in 2003, the seventh-seeded Bruins lost the opening series to the second-seeded Devils in five games. New Jersey would go on to win the Stanley Cup and even later that summer, Boston drafted Bergeron 45th overall.
Since then, the franchise has participated in 179 postseason matches, with Bergeron playing in 167 and Krejci in 158. Together, the pair has amassed 252 playoff points, contributing to the Bruins' 97-82 record during this time.
