The morning after the Bruins concluded their 1-3-0 road trip, Claude Julien [1] shook up his lines for Sunday’s practice. All four lines were different, with Milan Lucic [2] receiving the biggest demotion by going from the first line to the third line.

The lines were as follows:

Brad Marchand [3]David Krejci [4]Nathan Horton [5]
Daniel Paille [6]Patrice Bergeron [7]Tyler Seguin [8]
Milan Lucic [2]Rich Peverley [9] – Jordan Caron
Jay Pandolfo – Gregory Campbell [10]Shawn Thornton [11]

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 [12] (leg) did not practice, and he remains day-to-day after leaving Friday’s practice.
