With the Bruins' announcement of David Krejci being diagnosed with the H1N1 virus, the effect it could have on any team is an important topic. Patriots coach Bill Belichick said the team remains constantly aware of any potential threat of an illness pervading the team.

"There's nothing more important than the health of your team," Belichick said. "This is the time of year when -- whether it's that particular one or the colds that go around every year that get picked up -- it can spread pretty quickly. A team that eats together and showers together and is in the locker room together, definitely those are important issues for us, all year round, every season. This year, yeah."
