At the Rink: Bruins at Panthers

Boston Bruins center David Krejci has missed 13 games because of a knee injury; whether that comes to an end Saturday against the Florida Panthers remains to be seen.

Krejci skated with this teammates at BB&T Center in Sunrise, Fla., and stayed out on the ice for about an extra 25 minutes, according to the team's official Twitter feed. Neither he nor coach Claude Julien was prepared to say yes or no to his availability against the Panthers.

"Today, I made another step forward, did some battle drills, so I'll talk to the trainers, and we'll see," Krejci said. "Some part of it is mental as well. Once I feel good, I've got to make sure my head feels good."

At the Rink: Canadiens at Islanders

Forward Ryan Strome will be a healthy scratch for the New York Islanders on Saturday when they play the Montreal Canadiens at Nassau Coliseum.

Strome has played in all 70 games for the Islanders this season, his second in the NHL.

Coach Jack Capuano also said Michal Neuvirth will start in goal for the Islanders. Jaroslav Halak made 26 saves in a 2-1 loss to the Senators.

Brassard: Rangers-Islanders rivalry fun for players

New York Rangers center Derick Brassard joined NHL Live to preview their Metropolitan Division showdown against the New York Islanders on Tuesday at Nassau Coliseum (7 p.m. ET; NHLN-US, TVA, SN1 ,SNO, MSG 2, MSG+).

The Rangers are 1-3-0 against the Islanders this season but won the last game 6-5 on Feb. 16 after overcoming three two-goal deficits.

"I think our rivalry against the Islanders is actually fun for the players and I think for the fans," Brassard said. "It's not a rivalry that's bloody and we're trying to kill each other out there. I think it's really good hockey. They have a good team and so do we. It's a lot of fun playing in those games.

"We were down 2-0 in the first period in the last game there and we found a way to come back and get a win. Since then we've been playing some really good hockey. I think [Tuesday] it's going be another great game against them. We know how important points are in the standings."

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.

— Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews on teammate Antoine Vermette, who returned from being a healthy scratch in Game 3 to score the double-overtime winner in Game 4
