The Boston Bruins are facing elimination from the playoffs against the Florida Panthers, following their losses in games 5 and 6. As a result, coach Jim Montgomery is planning significant changes to the team's lineup.

Despite being a top contender for the Vezina trophy and even receiving some Hart votes, Linus Ullmark has not performed at his usual level during the playoffs. Whether it's due to injury or simply being off his game, Ullmark needs to improve his performance.


In light of the team's precarious position, it's likely that backup goalie Jeremy Swayman will start in the upcoming game. Swayman is widely regarded as one of the best backups in the league and could be a key factor in the Bruins' potential victory.

While some sources, such as Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic, predict the team's lineup will consist of Marchand-Bergeron-DeBrusk, Zacha-Krejci-Pastrnak, Hall-Coyle-Bertuzzi, Frederic-Nosek-Hathaway, Grzelcyk-McAvoy, Lindholm-Carlo, and Forbort-Orlov, Montgomery has not confirmed anything yet.

However, it's believed that Connor Clifton and Nick Foligno will be watching from the press box. The Bruins are hoping that these changes will lead to a win, especially considering that few expected the team to be in this precarious position.
