Veteran forward David Krejci has missed 10 games with a back injury and he's inching closer to returning to the lineup. He practiced with the team but was wearing a red no-contact sweater on Monday at Warrior Ice Arena.

The Bruins will face the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday, the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday and the San Jose Sharks on Saturday. He's expecting to participate in a full-contact practice on Tuesday and said he will return to the lineup on this trip, barring any setbacks.

"I'm planning to play at some point on this trip," Krejci said.
