The Bruins Fourth Lines Battles for Permanent Spots

Published March 16, 2024 at 10:47

The Bruins top 9 forward have been the same for the majority of the season when healthy. It's the fourth line that has seen a lot of changes of the course of the season but right now it seems like all their options have played well when given the opportunity.

Jakub Lauko, Jesper Boqvist and Justin Brazeau have all been playing extremely well together which seems to be their go-to guys on the fourth line but now things are getting a little more complicated. Pat Maroon is on his way back from injury and will be ready for the end of the season while Johnny Beecher has shown recently that he deserves a place on the fourth line.

Montgomery thinks all the possible options on the fourth line are playing well which is a good problem to have but they will need to figure out who fits the best together before the playoffs.

"I can have a vision [for the fourth line], but what you always realize as a coach is on paper, things look great, but you got to see it on the ice," Montgomery said on Tuesday. "You got to see the chemistry, so who do players play well with together."

The Bruins have 14 games left in the season before the playoffs to figure out which players mesh the best together on their fourth line.
