Bruins former head coach is making a statement

Published May 22, 2023 at 1:01

Former Boston Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy is making a statement in the Eastern Conference Finals as the leader of the Vegas Golden Knights and is making it look bad on the Bruins for firing him. In a thrilling Game 2, Cassidy guided the Golden Knights to a crucial victory, securing a commanding 2-0 series lead against the Dallas Stars.

This recent success for Cassidy adds an intriguing twist to his tenure with the Bruins. In June 2022, the Bruins made the surprising decision to part ways with Cassidy and opted to hire Jim Montgomery as their new head coach. Under Montgomery's guidance, the Bruins had an exceptional regular season, setting records along the way. However, their postseason journey ended in disappointment as they lost Game 7 after surrendering a 3-1 series lead to the Florida Panthers.

The contrast between Cassidy's success with the Golden Knights and the Bruins' postseason collapse under Montgomery has sparked discussions and reflections on the coaching decisions made by the organizations. As the Eastern Conference Finals continue, Cassidy's impact and the outcomes of both teams will be closely watched by hockey enthusiasts.
