NASHVILLE - Center David Krejci will not be in the lineup on Tuesday night in Nashville, as the Bruins face the Predators.
The hope is still that Krejci will return to game action amidst the Bruins' three-game road trip. They play in Minnesota on Wednesday, before finishing off the trip in Winnipeg on Friday.
"Day by day, as far as I'm concerned. Not in today, so I can confirm that," Head Coach Claude Julien said following the team's pregame skate at Bridgestone Arena.
The center took part in the skate and has been practicing with the team since it returned from the road trip out West.
Krejci has missed 10 straight games, and 16 of the past 18, dealing with his undisclosed injury. He has been sidelined for 19 of the Bruins' 30 games this season.
Milan Lucic, Chris Kelly and Craig Cunningham are expected to remain as a line, with Krejci still sidelined.
Game time is set for 7:00 p.m. local time (8:00 p.m. ET) at Bridgestone Arena, with coverage on NESN and 98.5 The Sports Hub.
