98.5 The Sports Hub's Bob Beers joined Mike Felger on Sports Sunday where the two dove right into the line changes Claude Julien finally made in practice today.

Milan Lucic was replaced by Brad Marchand on the first line, among other changes.

Beers says there are different ways to push players, and these line changes are a way to hopefully find a spark.

Felger is much more direct with his criticism and it's pointing right to Lucic.

Felger wonders why Lucic can't "string it together" on a more consistent basis, but Beers doesn't know what the problem is for sure.

"It's a good question … right now, and I think [Nathan] Horton kind of goes hand in hand with Milan Lucic," Beers said. "The two of them kind of feed off of each other. When they're both going, it's kind of obvious, but that's something that hasn't happened enough this year."

Felger wonders if the struggles of both Horton and Lucic will compel B's GM Peter Chiarelli to make a move, and if so, will he move players from the current roster?
