Krug lit the lamp in overtime on his fifth shot of the game Sunday and notched an assist in regulation, giving his team a 2-1 victory over Ottawa. Krug has now found the net on back-to-back nights, but his real value comes from assists, as those two goals are his only ones of the season. Averaging just under a point a game is excellent value for a defenseman regardless of how the points come, so consider the goals a bonus and count on Krug to provide points via helpers while he's in your lineup.
Krug scored a goal and added two assists in Saturday's 6-3 win over Toronto. It was a big night for the little defender, who has a remarkable 15 points in just 18 games this season. Krug remains an elite fantasy defender as long as he's healthy.
Krug picked up two assists during a 4-2 loss to the Maple Leafs on Monday. That makes points in three straight games for Krug, who has been collecting points since his return from injury in late October. He now has 10 points in 13 games while averaging 22:41 in time on ice.
Krug assisted on the overtime winner Friday as the Bruins topped the Penguins 2-1. After scoring six points in his first six games following a return from injury, Krug had gone quiet for four straight before Friday's assist. As the Bruins continue to suffer injuries on defense, Krug has had to focus more on the defensive side of the puck, so his offense may take a hit until more B's defenders come off injured reserve.
Krug uncharacteristically led his team with five blocked shots as the Bruins fell to the Avalanche 6-3 on Wednesday. After Zdeno Chara suffered an injury during Wednesday's game, Krug became the Bruins' number one defender as they attempted to stave off a ruthless Avalanche offense. Krug tied his career high in blocked shots, a feat he has done three previous times with the last one coming in a March 20, 2017 loss to the Maple Leafs. The Minnesota native will see a considerable bump in ice time for the next few games due to the depleted Bruins' blue line.
