Based on Wednesday'€™s practice, the Bruins can probably expect the return of David Krejci in either Thursday'€™s game against the Canucks or Saturday'€™s meeting with the Blue Jackets. Krejci was one of four forwards skating on Boston'€™s second line, joining Ryan Spooner, Loui Eriksson and Matt Beleskey. Perhaps most telling was the fact that he returned to his spot on Boston'€™s top power play unit on the point with Torey Krug. The Bruins will need to make a roster move in order to activate Krejci from injured reserve, as the team is currently at the 23-man roster limit. One possible move would be to put Landon Ferraro, whom the team says is day-to-day with a lower-body injury, on injured reserve. Because Ferraro last played on Saturday, the team could put him on IR retroactive to Sunday and he would only have to miss the next two games before being eligible to return on Monday against the Flyers. With Krejci back in practice, the forward lines looked as follows: Marchand-Bergeron-Connolly Beleskey-Krejci/Spooner-Eriksson Vatrano-Kemppainen-Hayes Rinaldo-Talbot-Pastrnak-Randell Colin Miller skated on the point of Boston'€™s second power play unit, suggesting he could possibly return Thursday after being a healthy scratch in Boston'€™s last two games.
