The Boston Bruins have one of, if not the best top line in the NHL.
The trio of Patrice Bergeron, David Pastrnak and Brad Marchand dominated the league last season, and they’ve since picked up right where they left off. During the B’s home opener against the Ottawa Senators on Monday, the three tallied 11 (!) points, which included a Bergeron hat trick.
There was some talk of potentially splitting up the first line with the absence of Rick Nash on David Krejci’s wing. But after Boston’s practice at Warrior Ice Arena on Wednesday, head coach Bruce Cassidy laid any rumor of doing so to rest.
That settles that.
So when the Bruins welcome the Edmonton Oilers to TD Garden on Thursday, don’t expect the first line to look any different.
