Bruins Game 5 lines: Ku-ready to go

Looks like there will be a familiar face in the lineup. Sean Kuraly is officially a game-time decision, but the early indications are that he's going to play, and Joakim Nordstrom will be the odd-man out. If anything officially changes, we’ll let you know. Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - Danton Heinen Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - David Pastrnak Marcus Johansson - Charlie Coyle - David Backes Sean Kuraly - Noel Acciari - Chris Wagner Zdeno Chara - Charlie McAvoy Torey Krug - Brandon Carlo Matt Grzelcyk - John Moore Tuukka Rask will be in net and will be excellent. Discuss.

Bruce Cassidy Lineup Changes Crucial in Boston Bruins Game 4 Win

Bruce Cassidy Lineup Changes Crucial in Boston Bruins Game 4 Win

The Boston Bruins have evened the series at 2-2 with their 6-4 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday night. The win featured a lineup change by Bruce Cassidy that should force the Leafs to rethink their strategy for the fifth game. Bruce Cassidy Lineup Changes Crucial in Boston Bruins Game 4 Win Lineup Change The major move Cassidy made was putting David Pastrnak on the second line with David Krejci and Jake DeBrusk. Taking Pastrnak off the top line with Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron gave the Bruins a powerful two lines instead of one loaded one that the Leafs proved they could...

What were the Maple Leafs doing to stifle the Bruins’ first line?

What were the Maple Leafs doing to stifle the Bruins’ first line?

Short answer: clogging the slot (Editor’s note: Our man Cam is studying abroad in Europe, yet he’s still out here creating content. What a competitor. Anyways, this came in late, right before Game 4, so please excuse any weird time issues. The analysis is still valid.) The Bruins’ vaunted first line trio of Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron, and David Pastrnak were largely stymied through the first three games in the team’s first-round playoff series. During the regular season, these three combined to be virtually unstoppable. As the group has struggled to manufacture shot attempts,...

Bruins Game 4 lines: The only prescription is Moore Johansson

According to the team, both Moore and Johansson are going to be game-time decisions. However, Bruce Cassidy said (through the team Twitter account) that both are trending in the right direction.

On second thought, Bruins stick with first line

Bruce Cassidy started Boston’s practice on Tuesday by giving his forward lines half the rink for some 3-on-3 shinny, a chance for open ice and maybe some fun. A good call, because little of this series with the Maple Leafs has been enjoyable to date, particularly the Perfection Line of Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron and […]
