These were the lines from this morning’s practice. Marc Savard continues to skate and is expected to play Monday night. While I feel Byron Bitz has played some of his best hockey in the past few games, I do not agree with him being a first line winger. Right now the Bruins do not have many other options. Maybe putting Marco Sturm on a line with Savard will get him going and hopefully contributing on a more consistent basis. As it stands now, it also looks like Sobotka will be the odd man out once again.
Now to the powerplay. Bergeron on the point really is always a risky move. I like the traditional two defensemen playing the points because of the threat of a shorthanded break against a forward. Matt Hunwick has started to preform like he had last season so I would have liked to see Hunwick kept at the point with Bergeron still up front.
