Krug (upper body) is fully recovered from the injury that cost him a single game prior to the league hiatus in mid-March, NBC Sports Boston reports. Krug's 49 points pace the Bruins defense corps and rank eighth among all league blueliners. Even with 12 games remaining on the docket should play resume, the 29-year-old wouldn't quite have reached the lofty heights of his 59-point, career-best output from 2017-18. However, Krug has proven he's a near-lock for 50-plus points in five straight seasons and is due for a hefty raise heading into unrestricted free agency this summer. Potential suitors could question if he'd be quite as prolific a producer away from the B's high-powered offense, but Krug will still be a highly coveted asset that commands a deal well north of his current $5.25 million cap hit.
Krug (upper body) won't play Tuesday night against the Flyers, Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston reports. The same applies to fellow blueliner Brandon Carlo, which sets the stage for Connor Clifton to re-enter the Bruins' lineup. For now, we'll consider Krug day-to-day, with his looming absence representing a blow to the team's top power-play unit.
Krug scored a goal and added an assist Thursday in a 2-1 overtime win over Florida. The goal was the game-winner. Krug has nine goals and 39 assists in 60 games, and he sits seventh overall in scoring from the blue line. Krug is currently riding a four-game, six-point streak (one goal, five assists). Use him well.
Krug notched two assists, one on the power play, in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Islanders. The 28-year-old blueliner started and ended February with multi-point outings, finishing the month with three goals and 12 points through 14 games. Krug is now up to 45 points (eight goals, 37 helpers) through 57 contests on the season, leaving him firmly on pace for his fourth straight 50-point campaign.
Krug posted an assist and three shots on goal but went minus-3 in Saturday's 9-3 loss to the Canucks.

He's at 42 points (24 on the power play), 127 shots and a plus-1 rating in 55 contests.
