07:40 AM ET 10.14 | At least in appearance, the trio will be together again -- it's the production that might have Bruins fans worried. Brad Marchand will be back on Patrice Bergeron's left wing soon, perhaps as early as Monday afternoon at TD Garden against the Red Wings. At least for one game, however, Marchand did not belong on the second line. After the second period of Saturday's 3-1 win over the Blue Jackets, coach Claude Julien pulled Marchand off the second line, replacing him with normal third-line right wing Reilly Smith. On the new line's first shift, Bergeron and Smith assisted on Loui Eriksson's winning goal. "I've got to be better," Marchand said. "We've been kind of quiet, our line. I think he's trying to switch it up and get us going a little bit. They scored right away, so it worked."

Marchand earns his paycheck in the playoffs. Nothing to see here.

I think he'll nose his way back on to the second line. He's sniffing around there now.

LOL - I've always said I don't know which I'd rather have.....a million dollars or his nose full of nickels.

When he's out there with a certain tall defenseman, they look like Stan and Ollie.

There aren't too many armchair GM's that wouldn't love to have Marchand on their team.
