Don’t expect Bruins’ Merlot Line to sour because of bad breaks

“I guess over the course of a season, you can’t expect perfection,” said Julien. “But they’ve been a good line for us and maybe it’s been a little bit of a struggle for them the last couple games. But I still have a lot of confidence in them and they’re still a line that when you need some energy and you need some momentum changes that go into your favor, they’re a line that you can count on a lot.”

From the sound of it, a couple nights filled with bad breaks and minus ratings won’t get Marchand, Campbell and Thornton down, so there should be some evening filled with the on-ice equivalent of wine and roses in the “Merlot Line’s” future.
