Krejci nearing return, possibly this weekend
Krejci has yet to take contact, so there are still hurdles to clear. The 28-year-old had 26 points in 38 games before he suffered a partially torn MCL in his left knee against the Blues.
The Bruins play the Panthers in Sunrise Saturday and are in Tampa Bay Sunday for a game against the Lightning. After that, they get three days off before hosting Anaheim Thursday.
Boston has gone an impressive 8-2-1 in the 11 games Krejci has missed with his latest injury, perhaps reducing the temptation to rush him back into action.
