Boston Bruins coach Jim Montgomery sends clear message to GM Don Sweeney after Game 6 loss to Panthers

Following the Boston Bruins elimination in Game 6 against the Florida Panthers Friday night, it didn’t take long for Jim Montgomery to send a message to GM Don Sweeney for one big offseason need.
The Florida Panthers are the better team, and they sealed the series Friday night with a 2-1 victory in Game 6—a fitting way to end the Black and Gold’s season—after the game was tied 1-1. Gustav Forsling got a rebound to the left of Jeremy Swayman and was able to sneak a shot by Parker Wortherspoon and Swayman for the 2-1 victory. This marks the second straight season that the Boston Bruins have failed to defeat the Panthers in the playoffs.

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.

Head coach Jim Montgomery said after the game that his team simply didn’t score enough to advance and knows that needs to change going into 2024-25.
