The Head Coach of Boston Bruins, Jim Montgomery As been sack today morning due to..

For the second straight season, the Boston Bruins were not able to get by the Florida Panthers in the playoffs. In all honesty, the Panthers are the better team and they clinched the series Friday night with a 2-1 win in Game 6 in such a fitting way to end the Black and Gold’s season.

With the game tied 1-1, Gustav Forsling collected a rebound to the left of Jeremy Swayman and was able to sneak a shot by Parker Wortherspoon and Swayman with 1:33 left in the third period for the 2-1 win.

The Bruins had their chances throughout the game to add to their lead after Pavel Zacha gave them a 1-0 lead late in the first period but couldn’t and in the overall picture of the six games in this series and even in their previous series against the Toronto Maple Leafs, the lack of scoring cost them. The only reason they were where they were Friday night was because of Swayman.

He is 100% correct. Boston had several chances to build on the lead in Game 6 from a David Pastrnak breakaway early in the second period and a golden chance in the slot for Justin Brazeau where Sergei Bobrovsky made big saves.

In Game 1, they scored five goals in a win, but they followed that with games where they scored one goal, two goals, two goals, two goals, and one goal. I don’t care how good your goaltending is, you’re not advancing very far in the Stanley Cup Playoffs with totals like that. During the regular season, the lack of goal-scoring at times went unnoticed, but in the playoffs where the margin is thin, it caught up with them.
