Throughout the season, Boston has effectively alternated between goaltenders, but Montgomery disclosed that he will be altering his strategy for a particular reason tonight.

Ullmark Takes Consecutive Starts

Earlier today, Head Coach Jim Montgomery confirmed that Linus Ullmark will be starting his second game in a row, with the Bruins hosting the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday evening.
Montgomery highlighted a key reason for choosing Ullmark again, which is to prepare for the upcoming playoffs:
''Yeah, that's exactly it. We figured this little run here, get him three games in six days, that's gonna replicate a little bit of playoffs and it's also gonna allow Swayman to get some games on the back end of that.''

It has been 19 games since Boston last refrained from alternating between Ullmark and Jeremy Swayman, with Ullmark being the first to start back-to-back games on February 18th and 20th.
Ullmark's position as the Bruins' preferred choice is unsurprising, given that he is currently leading the race for the Vezina Trophy with 36 victories, a 1.90 GAA, and a .937 save percentage.
