Given the recent offensive struggles for the Bruins, Claude Julien was forced to shake up the lines again for Monday night’s game. With the absence of Patrice Bergeron, the head coach decided to move Tyler Seguin down a line to relieve him of his centering duties.
Andy Brickley says it is not a demotion for Seguin, but an opportunity for him to focus on creating offense.
“You’ve got to free him up, you’ve got to play [Seguin] on the wing with a responsible centerman and let him concentrate on what he does best,” Brickley said during W.B. Mason Bruins Face-Off LIVE.
With Bergeron being such a vital component of this Bruins lineup, it will certainly present a challenge to Boston’s coaching staff to find goals from a struggling offense.
