Bruins Getting Closer To Full Health

Published December 29, 2017 at 12:26

Even with last night's disappointing loss to the Washington Capitals, the Boston Bruins have still won 14 of their last 19 games and are just one point behind the Toronto Maple Leafs for second place in the Atlantic Division. 

The Bruins will be back in action Saturday night at the Ottawa Senators, who they beat 5-1 on Wednesday night, and they could get some reinforcements. 

Head coach Bruce Cassidy told the media this morning that both center David Krejci and defenseman Adam McQuaid could play in Ottawa tomorrow night.  He added that they are both considered game time decisions. 

Krejci has been bothered by an upper-body injury all season long that has limited him to just 18 games so far, but he has been effective with five goals and 14 points in those games.  He has been out of the lineup since December 16.

A broken right fibula has kept McQuaid out of game action since October 19.  If and when both players return to the lineup, the Bruins will be the healthiest they have been all season.
