The Bruins have a tough week ahead of them with the Penguins and Canadiens as their next two opponents — and their road just got a bit rockier.
Boston will be without their No. 1 center David Krejci for at least one week with a concussion that he sustained last night.

David Krejci has been diagnosed with a concussion. He will be out for at least a week and he will continue to be evaluated by our medical team.
