Fresh Links: Incredible HuLK Edition

O Captain! My Captain! Zdeno Chara warms up. - Claus Andersen

The Boston Bruins first line of Horton, Lucic, and Krejci strive to lead the team, as they lead the league in offense, to a third victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight. Will the second line be able to make an impact, other than Bergeron's mastery of the faceoff circle?

The Toronto Maple Leafs host the Boston Bruins at the Air Canada Centre this evening at 7pm:

  • No line changes were reported at morning skate. [WEEI]
  • Turnabout is fair play, and the HuLK line has emerged as a force at the top of league statistics, while the second line has become somewhat quiet. [MassLive]
