New PP setup

During the first period Claude Julien shook up his lines even further. This time it was the powerplay. The first unit was overloaded with right handed shooters and setting up on the half boards on the  left side through Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci. The second unit was loaded with left handed shooters and was suppose to run through Vladimir Sobotka and Brad Marchand on the half boards on the right side.  I like the change of approach especially since the Bruins have been running the exact same powerplay setup for the past three seasons. Without Savard that setup can not function as successfully as in previous seasons. It is also interesting to see Marco Sturm and Michael Ryder removed from both units.  Both forwards were expected to produce 25-30 goals a piece but have been huge disappointments thus far.
