From the Boston Bruins today:
Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced
today that the club’s medical staff has confirmed a diagnosis of H1N1
for David Krejci. Based on Centers for Disease Control (CDC)
recommendations, Krejci will be isolated from the rest of the team until
he is symptom and fever free for 24 hours.
“Like most people, we are taking many precautions to try to prevent
our players and staff from contracting the H1N1 virus,” said
Chiarelli. “Our medical staff is working with David to get him
healthy as soon as possible, and our players and staff will continue to
take precautions with hopes of preventing the spread of the virus to
others in the organization.”
The timing couldn't be any worse. With the team not scoring goals – shutout in their last two games, losing Krejci on top of the losses to Savard and Lucic is going to hurt an already bad situation.
Mikko Lehtonen was called up from Providence (AHL) last night and now we know why. If I'm Julien, I move Vlad Sobotka up to the second line and put Steve Begin up on the third line. That leaves Shawn Thornton skating with a couple of kids in Lehtonen and Trent Whitfield.
Looks for Carey Price to battle Tim Thomas in between the pipes. This according to the Boston Globe's Bruins blog
