WILMINGTON – Good morning from Ristuccia Arena, where the Bruins have started practice in preparation for tomorrow’s game against Buffalo.
David Krejci, dropped to the third line against Washington, remains with Benoit Pouliot and Jordan Caron today.
“I don’t think there’s necessarily any messages,” Claude Julien said after practice when asked if he wanted to send a message to Krejci. “We expect our players to come out and be the best they can every night. That’s something I think they owe to the organization, especially based on their contracts. That’s what we expect from them no matter where they are.”
