The Boston Bruins were back on the ice at practice today preparing for the New York Rangers tomorrow night.
The best part about it is that the B's are looking healthy with Jake DeBrusk and Matt Grzelcyk both ready to play again.
This has given head coach Bruce Cassidy the opportunity to experiment and he's deciding to do something that you don't usually see across the NHL.
When Cassidy got his power play units together on the ice, the first unit was fully stacked not only with talent but with just forwards.
Even though the Bruins power play sits sixth in the league hitting at 33%, Cassidy decided to take it one step further and presented a fully loaded first unit.
David Krejci played the point skating with Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand, David Pastrnak and Nick Ritchie.
While on the second unit we found Charlie McAvoy with Grzelcyk, Charlie Coyle, Jake DeBrusk and Craig Smith.
What do you think of Cassidy's new power play strategy?
PP1: Krejci, Bergeron, Marchand, Pastrnak, Ritchie PP2: Grzelcyk, McAvoy, Coyle, DeBrusk, Smith
