Krejci Back At Practice, Marchand To Miss Road Trip
The Boston Bruins may be getting some good news in the injury department as one key player was back at practice on Tuesday morning.
David Krejci was skating with the team at an optional practice. According to Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston, Krejci skated the majority of the time by himself as he tries to return from an upper body injury.

Krejci was placed on the injured reserve list on Monday and has missed seven games with this current injury. Due to the IR designation, Krejci will not be able to rejoin the team until early next week, but his return to the ice was an encouraging sign for the Bs.
Brad Marchand will not be making the road trip with the Bs that begins tomorrow with a game in New York. Marchand was unable to play on Monday night and will now miss the next two games with an upper body injury. Anton Khudobin, who has been battling illness, is hopeful to be able to play a reserve role with Boston on Wednesday.
