When the Bruins' original lines are together, the players feel at home.

But Claude Julien tweaked those lines for Monday night's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs. He pointed out that the team needed an offensive spark.

He also pointed out that he can change the lines, well, because he can. He's the coach.

Having utilized this strategy several times in the past, even during a season in which the Bruins later went on to win a Stanley Cup, Julien has earned the right make that move and get away with it without much fuss.

And on cue, Milan Lucic broke a 15-game scoreless drought midway through the second period, while on his new line with Rich Peverley and Jordan Caron.

"Milan was very good," said Julien after the Bruins' 3-2 shootout win. "After the first period, he got his feet going and made a big difference."

Lucic took a Peverley pass in the neutral zone and used his speed to bust down the right side of the ice past every Maple Leaf in sight. He cut hard in front of the net and slipped it five-hole, cutting Toronto's lead to 2-1.

"It was starting to get really frustrating going as long as I did without a goal," said Lucic after the win. "You try so many different things, you keep pushing and pushing and when things start not working, you start second guessing yourself. It was great play by Jordy [Jordan Caron] to beat the pinch there and Pevs [Rich Peverley] gave me the pass and I just wanted to take it to the net and was able to finish it off. My game is pretty simple so it doesn’t really matter who I play with. I’m expected to play a certain way and I play the same way no matter who I play with."
