The Boston Bruins have announced major changes to their power play as they gear up for game 6 against the Florida Panthers.

The Bruins have been struggling to get their power play clicking, and after their game on Tuesday head coach Jim Montgomery called for a power play meeting with his players.
Montgomery felt like the players and coaches were on different pages.
«I don't feel our players are buying into what we're trying to sell to have success on the power play,» Montgomery said just moments following the victory. «We just got to have a healthy meeting here where we sit down and we hash things out.»

The Bruins had this meeting on Thursday where they saw captain Brad Marchand return to his original spot on the top power play unit. These are the lines the Bruins are running with now:
PP1: McAvoy, Pastrnak, Marchand, Coyle, DeBrusk
PP2: Lohrei, Geekie, Zacha, van Riemsdyk, Brazeau

The Bruins are 1-18 against the Florida Panthers in this series and hold a power play percentage of only 22.6% during their run in the playoffs and Montgomery feels this meeting was the exact thing that the Bruins needed to get their power play going.
