Krejci Misses Scrimmage With Fever; Marchand Fine After Collision With Cliffton



Brad Marchand

Already minus center David Krejci – who was sent home prior to Thursday’s Boston Bruns intra-squad scrimmage with a fever – the Bruins got a scare in the first half of the scrimmage that was played before a sellout crowd at TD Garden. Midway through the first half, star winger Brad Marchand collided with defenseman Connor Cliffton and left the ice holding his left hand/wrist area. Marchand was clearly in pain when he got to the bench, but he shook it off and according to head coach Bruce Cassidy, will be just fine.

“Injury risk was our biggest concern. It will be [also on] Saturday when we practice at our normal time, and Sunday obviously. You keep your fingers crossed, but Marchand is fine,” Cassidy said after Team Black defeated Team White 5-3. “He just bumped into [Connor] Clifton in front of the net and jammed his – I don’t know what he jammed – his hand or something. So kept playing, and he was fine. There was no issue there.”

Marchand has seven goals and eleven assists in 17 playoff games and Krejci has four lamplighters and 10 helpers in 17 playoff games.
