Breaking News: Head Coach Jim Montgomery Sends A ‘Triggering’ Message Ahead Of Bruins’ Game 6 Clash…

It’s ‘All Hands on Deck’ for Bruins in Game 6!

The Bruins will once again face a do-or-die scenario in Game 6 on Friday night against the Florida Panthers. Despite extending their season with a 2-1 victory on Tuesday night, Boston still faces elimination in front of its home crowd.

Head Coach Jim Montgomery understands the gravity of the situation and has emphasized that it’s “all hands on deck” for this crucial game.

“Yeah, I mean, this is why we play this time of the year. This is why you love being a part of the Stanley Cup Playoffs,” Montgomery said Wednesday. “It’s why when you are a little boy — whether you’re a player, a coach, an equipment manager, or a Zamboni driver — you love being a part of this. This is why you do it.

“… If we’re going to continue to have success in this series … I’m talking to the team in general, we have to come up with more loose pucks,” Montgomery added. “We have to become even harder and have to spend more time in the offensive zone.”

The Bruins have struggled throughout the series with turnovers, mistakes in their own zone, losing puck battles, and not getting enough shots on net. However, they showed improvement on Tuesday, holding the Panthers to just four shots in the first period and winning several one-on-one battles — an area Montgomery emphasized needs continuous improvement.

“Tuesday was our best game with one-on-one battles,” he said. “But again, that’s going to be the area that we have to continue to grow in because the team that continues to win battles and extends that throughout the series usually ends up on top. So that’s an area of focus for us.”

The Bruins will practice Thursday morning and have an extra day to prepare for Game 6 on Friday night. They aim to even the score and force a decisive Game 7.
