We are here today to mourn the loss of David Krejci... Krejci was given a hard, but clean, check... The Hockey Gods are cruel and saw it fit to take Krejci from us too soon. Krejci will be joining recently departed Marco Sturm in that press box in the sky. Now, a moment of silence for David Krejci.-- Days of Y'Orr staff
We wrote that back in May after Mike Richards broke Krejci's wrist, ending his season and, consequently, the Bruins season. We're not saying the Bruins season is done -- far from it -- but it's just another big, clean hit on the poor Czech that has knocked him out of the line-up. It's deja vu for Boston again. Instead of Richards, it's TJ Oshie (who earlier knocked Chara off his feet) that injured Krejc. Fluke injuries.
And we can't even be pissed at Oshie either -- it's a clean hit. And DOY HQ highly values hard, clean hits.
If we were Dan Shaughnessy, we'd talk about some stupid Center's Curse that would become a national phenomina, but we're not assholes, so we won't. But the Bruins have gone from a team with a plethora of centers at its disposal to looking for a temporary plug up the middle.
