Bruins' coach Montgomery

Following the Bruins’ Game 1 victory, head coach Jim Montgomery acknowledged the team’s overall satisfaction but emphasized the need for improvement moving forward in the series against the Florida Panthers.

While pleased with the outcome, Montgomery expressed concerns about the team’s performance in the series opener. Despite a convincing four-goal margin, he highlighted areas for enhancement, particularly in execution and minimizing mistakes.

“We had a solid effort and displayed physicality, but our execution fell short of expectations,” Montgomery stated in a post-game interview. He credited goaltender Jeremy Swayman for keeping the team in a favorable position, noting that without his contributions, the game might have had a different outcome.
