After two stomach-punch losses in a row, the Bruins were prepared to try something different on Thursday night.
Peter Chiarelli started the dominoes in motion by waiving Chris Bourque, and it wasn’t soon after that the rest of the Bruins lineup felt a bit of a shakeup. Still, it was the usual suspects coming through against the Maple Leafs, as the Brad Marchand–Patrice Bergeron–Tyler Seguin line came up big — as they always seem to.
It was David Krejci, though, who was a welcome addition to the scoring party. His goal alleviated some of the pressure that the second line might have been feeling, and it will hopefully be a preview of much more scoring to come from a line other than Bergeron’s.
NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is awarding Krejci our “Line Dance” player of the game award for helping the Bruins’ moves pay off. Who’s yours?
