BOSTON – Boston Bruins forward David Krejci 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 post-season 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.
