Yesterday, just before Game 3 between the Boston Bruins and the Toronto Maple Leafs, Bruins coach Jim Montgomery shared his thoughts on the playoff schedule.

Despite having home ice advantage, Montgomery expressed concern that the Bruins were spending too much time in Toronto.

"I think we're spending more time in Toronto than Toronto is spending in Boston. We're the home team."

Jim Montgomery shares his thoughts on the scheduling of the Leafs-Bruins series.

As Game 3 unfolded at Toronto's Scotiabank Arena, Montgomery's comments added intrigue to the matchup. With an extra day off before Game 4, the Bruins faced the challenge of balancing rest and preparation amidst Montgomery's remarks.

While some fans agreed with Montgomery's perspective, others saw it as a minor issue.

Nevertheless, as the Bruins took to the ice for Game 3, they remained focused on the task at hand, determined to compete regardless of the playoff schedule and ended up beating the leafs 4-2 to take a 2-1 series lead.
