Boston Bruins Set To Make Major Changes To Their Goalies

Published March 16, 2024 at 10:22

As the NHL regular season winds down and the playoffs approach, the Boston Bruins face a crucial decision about their goaltending strategy.

Throughout the season, they've rotated goalies Jeremy Swayman and Linus Ullmark, which has worked well. However, Head Coach Montgomery suggests they may change this approach for the playoffs.

With playoffs in mind, the Bruins are considering letting each goalie play multiple consecutive games to assess their performance under pressure. Montgomery stresses the importance of this change, acknowledging the unique demands of playoff hockey.

"At some point, we might want to see someone play three games in a row. That's kind of what we've discussed,"

The prospect of a goaltending showdown adds uncertainty to the Bruins' playoff preparations. Will they stick with their rotation or rely on the goalie who performs best? With playoffs nearing, all eyes will be on Boston as they make this pivotal decision.
