Report: David Krejci Taken to Hospital After First-Period Hit

Bruins center David Krejci absorbed a stunning hit from Mike Richards during the first period of Wednesday's 4-1 win over Philadelphia, and NESN insider James Murphy reports that head coach Claude Julien said Krejci was taken to the hospital.

Krejci sustained the hit just prior to Miroslav Satan's goal with just over 14 minutes remaining in the first. Replays indicated that Richards hit Krejci in the shoulder, but it appeared that Krejci's head might have hit Richards' shoulder.

Julien did not provide specifics about the extent of the injury. 

Also injured in the game was defenseman Adam McQuaid.
