The Boston Bruins have lost four of their last six games. Last Thursday, they beat the Sharks 3-0 after a major lineup change, and what some consider a demotion for Brad Marchand.

Coach Montgomery decided to separate Marchand and Pastrnak, placing the captain with Matt Poitras and Danton Heinen.

Tonight, the Bruins are facing the Maple Leafs, and we should see the same lineup that beat the Sharks in action.

Marchand probably won't mind, as he seems to like his new line.

In a recent interview, Marchand talked about playing with Heinen and Poitras:

"I think it will be good...Heinen has been playing great all year, and Matty is such a gifted young player. It's like any new line, the more you communicate and talk to each other and support each other, the more success you're going to have."

Marchand's leadership and professionalism resonate in his words. We look forward to seeing him tonight against Toronto in this crucial division clash.
