It’s all part of Boston’s preparation for the Pittsburgh Penguins, a team that features two of the most dangerous offensive weapons in the game — Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin — each of whom center a different top line.

“Maybe it’s pairing, maybe it’s separating,” Julien said earlier this week. “We’ll have something in mind by the time the first game comes around.”
That first game is Saturday in Pittsburgh.
