Boston Bruins defenseman David Warsofsky will miss 2-4 weeks with a groin strain, the team announced Sunday. Warsofsky was injured in Boston's 5-2 win against the Edmonton Oilers on Nov. 6.

In addition to Warsofsky, defensemen Zdeno Chara (knee), Torey Krug (finger) and Kevan Miller (shoulder) are on the injured list. Krug, however, has been practicing since Friday and there's a chance he can return Monday against the New Jersey Devils at TD Garden.

"Yeah, definitely," Krug told the Bruins website after practice Sunday. "It's realistic, it's something that we've just got to talk about and make sure I feel comfortable with it, the coaches feel comfortable, and it's going to be a group decision.

"I feel good. I'm feeling more comfortable. Every time I'm on the ice I feel better about it, so it's good so far."

Sidney Crosby (0-5-5) matched a career-high with five assists to take sole possession of the League lead for assists (17) and points (24). He also had five assists on Mar. 10, 2013 against the New York Islandersand Dec. 13, 2006 against the Philadelphia Flyers when he scored a career-high six points. Crosby is the first player to post five helpers in a game since Jamie Benn on Nov. 14, 2013 (1-5-6). He now has points in 19 straight games against the Buffalo Sabres (10-26-36), his longest active point streak against any team.

Jakub Voracek (0-3-3) extended his point streak to eight games, one shy of his personal best set from Dec. 9 to 28, 2013. He has seven multi-point games this season and at least one point in 13 of 14 games in 2014-15. Voracek ranks second in the League in assists (16) and points (22).

ANAHEIM -- The incredulous look came across Ryan Kesler’s face when he was asked how quickly he checked the 2014-15 NHL schedule after he was traded to the Anaheim Ducks, as if someone questioned his competitiveness.

Yes, the first game against his former team, the Vancouver Canucks, on Sunday at Honda Center (9 p.m. ET; CITY, PRIME), has been on his radar for a long time.

“I’m a competitive guy. I want to win. Obviously I want to have success against that team,” Kesler said.


Peter Forsberg forged golden legacy in Sweden

Postage stamp images in Sweden are usually reserved for kings.

So it shouldn't come as a surprise Peter Forsberg is one of the few hockey players to have his likeness on a stamp issued by Swedish Post, the government agency regulating the country's mail system.

In a wonderful piece of symbolism, the moment commemorated on that stamp represents Forsberg's ascendancy to the hockey throne in his country.

The stamp captures Forsberg in the process of pushing a puck past Canada goaltender Corey Hirsch into the net, giving Sweden the lead in the shootout of the gold-medal game at the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway.

A select group of Swedish players have had their likeness on a stamp, but Forsberg is the only one to have a singular accomplishment portrayed.

MONTREAL -- The Big Three is together again.

The Montreal Canadiens retired the No. 5 of Hall of Fame defenseman Guy Lapointe prior to the game against the Minnesota Wild on Saturday, allowing him to join the No. 18 of Serge Savard and No. 19 of Larry Robinson in the rafters of Bell Centre.

An emotional Lapointe, who has been the Wild's chief of amateur scouting since Minnesota was awarded an expansion franchise in 1999, struggled to control his emotions as he watched his No. 5 Lapointe banner raised between those of his fellow Big Three members on either side of him.

"I was a lot more comfortable in a pair of skates than I am in my shoes right now," Lapointe told the Bell Centre crowd.

The NHL is not likely to see anything like the famed Big Three on the blue line of the powerhouse Canadiens teams of the 1970s again, with Savard, Robinson and Lapointe all honored in the Hockey Hall of Fame after playing on the same blue line.

Quote of the Day

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
