PITTSBURGH -- Boston Bruins center David Krejci left a 2-1 loss Sunday to the Pittsburgh Penguins late in the third period with an apparent right knee injury.

Through coach Claude Julien, the team gave no official update on Krejci's condition after the game other than to say that it is not been ruled out that he will accompany the team on its trip to Winnipeg in advance of a game against the Jets on Tuesday.

Krejci was struck square in the right knee by a slap shot while he leaped in front of the net. He was down on the ice for several moments and needed to be helped to the bench, not applying any weight onto the leg.

He is second on the team in points with 24 in 27 games. Krejci was seen walking under his own power after the game.

Krejci had nine points over his previous seven games before Sunday, including a goal and two assists in a 4-1 win against the Washington Capitals on Saturday.
