3. Get the first line going

The Boston Bruins most dominant line struggled a lot on Monday. The Bruins line combined for a rating of -7, with Brad Marchand having the worst night with a rating of -3. The Bruins are a deep team, but they perform the best when their first line is getting things done. If the Bruins can get some early production from these guys it will pay dividends.

The line combined for 228 points in the regular season. You know they are able to score, but can they do it when they are needed the most? The line is having a relatively great series combining for 20 points, but they need to rebound in game 4.

Next: The Bruins were unable to execute in game 3

If the Bruins first line is able to put up some points there is a good chance that they will be coming home with a 3-1 lead.
