What to do about injuries

I'm at work so I didn't see the Richards on Krejci hit, but I'd sit Krejci next game anyways... let Savvy center Lucic and Miro, and let Sobotka center Wheeler and Ryder, and put Marchand with Begin and Thornton. That way, EVEN IF they Bruins were to lose game 4, he would have all the way until Monday before he would have to play a potential game 5... and would get similar rest if the Bruins won, before they start the Conference Finals. Also, work Stuart in as your 3rd left-D, push Ference to 3rd right-D, and McQuaid can heal and become the depth guy again. Even if Stuart could give you more minutes, I wouldn't move him up right now because I wouldn't want to hurt chemistry too much between the top d-pairs.
