The Bruins got back to winning Sunday, defeating the Capitals, 4-1, at the Verizon Center.
On a day when Claude Julien shuffled some of the Bruins' lines amidst the team's struggles, it was Patrice Bergeron's line -- which stayed intact -- the produced big for Boston. Both Bergeron (two assists) and Brad Marchand (a goal and an assist) had two-point games for the Bruins, who broke a two-game losing streak.
Playing with Milan Lucic and Chris Kelly, Rich Peverley sent a pass through Dennis Wideman and onto the stick of Lucic in front, and Lucic finished the play with his 19th goal of the season at 10:45 in the first period. Marchand made it 2-0 late in the period with his 19th of the year. After a scoreless second period, Tyler Seguin took a nice feed from Marchand in front and buried his team-leading 20th goal of the season.

Giants defensive lineman Chris Canty took to Twitter Sunday afternoon to offer a prediction for Super Bowl XLVI, writing that New York would beat the Patriots by 11 points.
The tweet from Canty was in response to the following from @JasonRomano (Jason Romano), who wrote: Send me your Super Bowl predictions that stink -- Closest to the score gets a copy of @ToddGongwer's new book "Lead for God's Sake." That prompted the following from @chriscanty99: Giants 28, New England 17.
Canty already had been responsible for perhaps the week's biggest controversy when he told a New York television station, "Get ready for a great game on Super Bowl Sunday, and get ready for a parade on Tuesday." The defensive lineman later said that he...
While the Patriots' decision to release wide receiver Tiquan Underwood on the eve of the Super Bowl raised eyebrows, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN (via twitter), Underwood will receive a full Super Bowl share.
