Krug assisted on the game-opening goal in the first period and the game-tying goal on a third-period power play Friday against the Rangers. He finished plus-2 with three shots, three hits and three blocks. Krug had missed the scoresheet in three straight games -- bizarrely, he'd fired six shots on net in two of those and zero in the other. The highly skilled blueliner is still stuck on one goal for the year, but he's shown plenty of willingness to fire the puck and is on pace to exceed his career high of 40 points anyway.
Krug (undisclosed) will play Thursday against the Avalanche. Krug missed practice both Tuesday and Wednesday in what were termed "maintenance days," but he's indeed in the lineup for the contest. He'll pair with Adam McQuaid for the contest.
Krug (unspecified issue) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's game against the Avs, NHL.com reports. Krug's absences from practice both Tuesday and Wednesday were portrayed by the B's as maintenance days, but his status for Thursday's game has yet to be cemented. With that in mind, GM Don Sweeney relayed that the blueliner -- who participated in Thursday's morning skate -- is "just dealing with something small."
Krug (rest) was back on the ice at the Thursday morning skate, DJ Bean of WEEI.com reports. This is a positive sign after Krug curiously received two consecutive "maintenance days" leading up to Thursday's skate. His official status for Thursday's game against the visiting Avalanche has yet to be determined, but we believe the team will announce his availability ahead of the opening faceoff.
Krug received another maintenance day Wednesday. While there's been no injury reported here, Krug's status for Thursday's game against the Avs is now worth confirming, given that the blueliner has had two straight "maintenance days."
