Along with Milan Lucic, the trio has been responsible for the bulk of scoring for the Bruins all year, with the trio taking up three of the top four scoring spots on the B's roster.
With team struggling for offense in its last stretch of games, Claude Julien has left that line intact while shuffling around the rest of the team's forwards. David Krejci has been shuffled around from line to line, for example, along with Chris Kelly and young forwards Zach Hamill and Jordan Caron. So far, Julien hasn't found the answer.
With the team heading up to Montreal to start a six-game road trip against the Habs, perhaps splitting up the team's most productive line could shake up the lineup. While Seguin and Marchand have thrived playing alongside Bergeron, their talents might be better applied elsewhere, spreading the wealth of ability around and balancing out the lines to find a new formula that works.
With the trade deadline looming, the Bruins front office might be looking to add some pieces and get some new faces into the lineup. Perhaps they should first see if changing around what they already have on the ice could do the trick.
