In a recent press conference following practice, Boston Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery hinted at the team's goaltending plans for the pivotal Game 4 clash against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

When asked about who would be between the pipes for the Bruins in the upcoming game, Montgomery cryptically mentioned that the team is sticking to a pre-established plan.

This comment strongly indicates that Linus Ullmark is likely to be the starting goaltender for the crucial matchup against the Leafs.

#NHLBruins head coach Jim Montgomery said in his post practice press conference that the team is following the plan that was put in place when asked about his goaltending and who starts game 4.
I'm taking that as Linus Ullmark gets the start tomorrow night vs. the #LeafsForever.

While Montgomery's statement doesn't explicitly confirm Ullmark's starting role, it provides a strong indication of the team's intentions for the game.

Bruins fans have been vocal about who they think should be the starter for the rest of the series, but ultimately Montgomery will do what he thinks is the best/right choice for the team.
