Injured Krejci doesn't travel with team


BOSTON -- Bruins center David Krejci left practice early Tuesday with what appeared to be a leg injury. Head coach Claude Julien told the media he did not know the severity of the injury and also wasn't sure if Krejci would be on the team flight to Raleigh later this afternoon.

Later in the day, Bruins president Cam Neely said on Boston sports radio station 98.5 The Sports Hub that Krejci did not make the trip to Carolina with that team and that he was being checked out by doctors. Neely did not say whether Krejci would rejoin the team before Wednesday's matchup against the Hurricanes.

After the Bruins play Canes on Wednesday night, they travel to Chicago for a game with the Blackhawks on Saturday night.

Krejci has one goal in his first three games starting the season on the top line again with Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton.
