The biggest decision for Jim Montgomery heading into game seven will be who he starts in net and the Bruins head coach has shared his initial thoughts on the subject.

Who's It Going To Be?

The team arrived back in Boston this morning after a disappointing 7-5 loss in game six, and after a 3-1 series lead, will have to prepare for a game seven on Sunday.
When asked about whether - or why - he would make the switch to Jeremy Swayman in game seven, Montgomery shared the following:
''Linus didn't make enough stops; that would be the reason to make a switch. Plain and simple.''

The Bruins bench boss also noted that he had ‘'no regrets'' putting in Ullmark for the first six games of the series, but that he also wouldn't hesitate to to go with Swayman.
''When it comes to Jeremy Swayman, he is the most confident individual that I know.''

‘'If it's Swayman that's in net, I have the utmost confidence in him.''

Swayman was one of the hottest goalies in the NHL through the second half of the season, as he finished with a 24-6-4 record, a 2.27 GAA, a .920 SV% and 4 shutouts.
However, the 24-year-old would come in ice cold, not having started since a 5-4 win over the Canadiens in the regular season finale.
