BOSTON (AP) -Boston Bruins forward David Krejci (KRAY'-chee) will miss the rest of the Stanley Cup playoffs after dislocating his right wrist.

Krejci injured the wrist in the first period of the team's 4-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday in game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series.

Krejci collided with Flyers captain Mike Richards just before Boston scored the go-ahead goal. The Bruins lead the best-of-seven series 3-0.

Krejci had surgery to repair the wrist at a Baltimore hospital following the game.

He has four goals and four assists in nine postseason games, after scoring 17 goals and 35 assists in 79 regular season games.

He is expected to be ready for the start of the 2010-2011 season.
