Jim Montgomery's credibility at risk following odd revelation to media

Published April 28, 2024 at 6:22 PM

Jim Montgomery's credibility is facing scrutiny after a surprising revelation to the media. In a not surprising move at all, Montgomery declined to announce his goalie choice for Game 5.

The decision to have Forbort participate in warmups was explained as a means to help him regain his game day rhythm. However, Montgomery remained tight-lipped about whether Forbort would be an option for Game 5.

Unsurprisingly, Montgomery not naming his Game 5 goalie.

Forbort taking warmups last night was to get him back in a game day rhythm. Wouldn't say if he'll be an option for Game 5.

Meanwhile, Swayman's impressive performance in the three games he's played in for the Bruins against the Maple Leafs has garnered attention. Despite Ullmark's solid performance during the game he started, the Bruins' only loss occurred when he was in net.

With Swayman proving himself capable, there is growing pressure from Bruins fans for Montgomery to make the right decision and start Swayman in Game 5. However, the final call remains uncertain, leaving fans eagerly awaiting Montgomery's decision.
