I think you’ve gotta give Montgomery the blame tonight. Forbort was awful. Clifton was bad. Foligno wasn’t a difference maker.

And the goalie management was terrible.

I’m not even pissed, I’m just disappointed that they did what they needed to do offensively and they got let down by the same guys repeatedly on defense and in goal tonight. When you are up a goal two separate times in the last 12 minutes, you need to win that game. Horribly disappointing for a team that won with goaltending and defense all year.

Hate the outcome obviously. But you gotta admit, Florida came to play. But what in the actual fuck is wrong with the Bruins?

Lindholm has been completely awful all series, too. All of the defensemen have, with the exception of a few gorgeous passes by Orlov.

Montgomery is fucking paralyzed. I’ve never seen anything like it.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a coach pull all the right buttons in a regular season and then just shit the bed in the first round of the playoffs

I just don’t understand the hesitation to put in Swayman. Your goalie gives up 6 and no change. Jesus.
By game theory alone it is a ridiculously bad decision. Instead of giving the team a potential lift all he’s done is ruin Ullmark and keep Swayman cold.

If you told me they’d score 5 goals, I’d assume that’s an easy win. But Ullmark sucked ass and Monty wouldn’t make a change for some unknown reason. The Panthers benched Lyons and haven’t looked back.

I get the Ullmark and coaching points. But it’s a whole team breakdown to me.

It’s like they have never watched a playoff game. You have to check in the playoffs. You can’t just skate away from guys all night in the defensive end. I don’t understand what the fuck any of them are doing.

I just need this series to be over with, one way or the other. Just fucking pull it out at home and go into the next series, 0-0.

Monty is just a nice guy. A goddamn moron, but seemingly a nice guy. He can't work the refs, he can't see how dumb his roster choices are and he can't see an obviously hobbled goalie when it is right in front of him.

This is criminal.
