The Bruins laced up the skates twice this week as they and their division rival Toronto Maple Leafs endured in a home-and-home series that kicked off Wednesday evening in Toronto. The Bruins entered that contest one point behind the Leafs for the lead in the Northeast Division. A 6-3 victory helped the B’s leap frog the Leafs and into first place.

The home-and-home concluded on Saturday, this time with the roles reversed as the Bruins held a one point lead over the Leafs. The Bruins were once again victorious as they extended their division lead with a 4-1 victory at the Garden.

Thursday afternoon it was announced that the Bruins and top-center David Krejci had agreed to a three-year extension that was signed just hours before the Bruins took the ice north of the border.

Krejci responded very well to the new contract with a three-point-night which included a goal. The Czechoslovakian-born-center proved his Wednesday performance was no fluke when he scored and added an assist Saturday evening.

The five-point-week and very money friendly contract extension earns Krejci this week’s Bruins Daily Bruins player of the week honors.

It’s been a struggle for Krejci this year who prior to signing he extension had just 13 points in 20 games.

It’s a great possibility that the thought of uncertainty heading into the off-season was indeed what was weighing Krejci down, but his five-point-outburst in the past two games is hopefully a sign of things to come.
