Claude Julien shakes up lines, Johnny Boychuk misses practice
|03.24.13 at 1:26 pm ET|
The morning after the Bruins concluded their 1-3-0 road trip, Claude Julien shook up his lines for Sunday’s practice. All four lines were different, with Milan Lucic receiving the biggest demotion by going from the first line to the third line.
The lines were as follows:
Brad Marchand – David Krejci – Nathan Horton
Daniel Paille – Patrice Bergeron – Tyler Seguin
Milan Lucic – Rich Peverley – Jordan Caron
Jay Pandolfo – Gregory Campbell – Shawn Thornton
Asked why he altered the lines, Julien responded, “Because I can. Because I’m the coach.”
The Bruins scored just six goals over the four-game road-trip. They will return to action Monday against the Maple Leafs.
Johnny Boychuk (leg) did not practice, and he remains day-to-day after leaving Friday’s practice.
