David Krejci was not a practice Saturday as the Bruins were back on the ice at TD Garden to prepare for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final against the St. Louis Blues on Monday night.

Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said he expects Krejci back at practice Sunday, so the illness is not expected to keep him out of the series opener.
"If he's not out there tomorrow, then I believe there's a little bit of worry there," Cassidy told reporters.
Here's how the B's lined up without Krejci at his usual spot centering the second line.
