Krejci will play for the Czech Republic in the upcoming World Championships.

EDGE Analysis

Krejci, who logged 17 goals and 44 points in 64 regular-season contests, picked up the pace a bit in the playoffs, recording three goals and 10 points in 12 games. The 32-year-old is under contract with the Bruins through the 2020-21 season, so he's entrenched as a top-six forward/power-play contributor for the team for the foreseeable future. Nagging injuries can be a concern for Krejci at times, but when healthy his calling cards remain excellent vision and crafty play-making skills, traits that serve him well in his role as the team's second-line center.

Krejci scored a power-play goal in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Lightning in Game 5.

EDGE Analysis

The first-period tally was Krejci's first goal since Game 2 of the Bruins' opening-round series against the Leafs. The 32-year-old wraps up his postseason with three goals and 10 points in 12 games, a much better scoring pace than the 17 goals and 44 points he managed during 64 regular-season contests, but coming up big in the playoffs is nothing new for Krejci.

Krejci (undisclosed) was given a maintenance day Sunday, but is slated to play Monday night against the Lightning.

EDGE Analysis

Per Fluto Shinzawa of the Athletic, the Bruins' Monday night lineup will be unchanged from the one that skated to a 6-2 road win over Tampa Bay on Saturday. Krejci, who is nursing an unspecified minor injury issue, is thus slated to continue to center Boston's second line, a role that has led to the crafty playmaker logging two goals and nine points in eight playoff games to date.

Krejci missed Sunday's practice as he's dealing with a minor injury but is still expected to suit up for Game 2, Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston reports.

EDGE Analysis

After being crunched by a couple hits during Game 1 on Saturday against Tampa Bay, Krejci reportedly needed to sit out in order to heal his wounds. Head coach Bruce Cassidy confirmed following the skate that Krejci had sustained a "very minor injury", but all signs are pointing for him to be ready to go for Game 2 on Monday. The Czech native has had no trouble finding the scoresheet this postseason notching two goals and seven assists in eight games, and Ryan Donato figures to draw into the lineup if for some reason Krejci is unable to go.

Krejci tallied an assist and fired one shot on net while logging 17:55 of ice time in Monday's 3-1 Game 6 loss to Toronto.

EDGE Analysis

Krejci has been one of the Bruin's best players this postseason, notching two goals and five points in six contests, making him an excellent play in playoff pools and daily contests. The veteran pivot will look to continue his strong play and help his team put Toronto away in a winner-take-all Game 7 in Boston on Wednesday.

Krejci garnered an assist in Thursday's 3-1 victory over Toronto.

EDGE Analysis

With his tally, Krejci now has four points in the playoffs, along with four PIM, five shots and three blocks. Slightly concerning for fantasy owners, the center logged a mere 13:07 of ice time in Game 4 -- his lowest total for the season, barring a Oct. 19 outing in which he left the game due to injury. With Patrice Bergeron sidelined, the expectation would be that Krejci would've taken on an expanded role; rather than a reduced one.

Krejci had a goal and an assist -- both on the power play -- in Thursday's 5-1 Game 1 win over Toronto.

EDGE Analysis

Krejci's tally with 8:31 left in the third completed the scoring, and that goal was preceded by a helper on David Backes' game-winning goal early in the middle frame. The Czech center hadn't lit the lamp since March 19, but that cold spell's in the rearview mirror now.

Krejci set up three goals in Saturday's 5-1 home win over the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran center absorbed a hard hit to the head from Brayden Schenn in the contest, but fortunately, Krejci was OK. He's looking for a strong finish to the season with his current total at 42 points (17 goals, 25 assists) through 59 games.

Krejci scored twice in a 7-4 win over the Blackhawks on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Both goals came on the power play. Krejci has five goals in his last five games; four of those snipes have come on the power play. He continues to produce at about a 60-point pace, so use that well.

Krejci recorded a hat trick in Thursday's 8-4 win over the Penguins, including two goals on the power play.

EDGE Analysis

Krejci lit the lamp on each of his three shots. He scored at even strength for the first of Boston's five first-period goals, then struck twice with the extra man in the second. This was an unexpected breakout performance for a player that had just three goals and three assists over his previous 16 games.
