Morning Skate: Breaking up is hard to do

Is it the end of the Best Line in Hockey?

It is Wednesday, my dudes.

It’s another off day for the Bruins, who are back in action tomorrow night against the New Jersey Devils.

The big news out of practice today was the fact that Bruce Cassidy has apparently decided that he’s ready to break up the first line for tomorrow’s game.

Per the team, David Pastrnak will move down to the second line tomorrow night to play with Nick Ritchie and David Krejci.

So ends the Best Line in Hockey. May it rest in peace.

Nah, it’ll likely be back before too long. Per Cassidy, he’s looking to spark a couple of guys in that top six, namely Jake DeBrusk and David Krejci (in the goal-scoring department, at least).

DeBrusk hits the jackpot of moving up to the first line, where he’ll play on the right.

Crazy times, folks. Still, Cassidy has been known to juggle lines. Don’t be surprised if Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron, and Pastrnak are reunited tomorrow night if the team struggles to generate offense.

Today’s highlight

David Krejci has certainly enjoyed playing against the Devils in the past.
