NHL.com continues its preview of the 2014-15 season, which will include in-depth looks at all 30 teams throughout September.

Entering his 11th NHL season, Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron has had dozens of linemates. He's worked well with some, better with others. One thing he's learned is that line chemistry is as easy to predict as the lottery.

But when the right numbers come up, the jackpot can be big.

The Bruins hit the lottery last season when the line of Bergeron, Brad Marchand and Reilly Smith combined for 75 goals and 91 assists, had the Corsi-for percentage of any line that played at least 300 minutes together at even strength according to Progressivehockey.com, and helped Boston win the Presidents' Trophy. Bergeron had his second 30-goal season and was second on the Bruins with 62 points; Marchand's 25 goals were the second-most he's had in a season; and Smith, in his first full NHL season, had 20 goals and 51 points.

Quote of the Day

The last time I did it was 1994 and surprise, 20 years later it’s still working. I don’t do it very much, though. I don’t think I had it. I’m kind of surprised. It was probably because I went to church before the game.
