Even though many fans believed the Bruins would dominate the series right from the start, it's currently tied at 1-1 as they head back to Florida. Now, Jim Montgomery faces a crucial choice.

Challenging the Norm

Throughout NHL history, it has been customary for teams to rely on a single goalie during the playoffs. But is it time for a change?
In a surprising move, Minnesota played veteran Marc-Andre Fleury in game two after Filip Gustavsson secured a win in the first game. Unfortunately, the decision backfired, and the Wild suffered a 6-3 loss to the Dallas Stars.
However, the situation in Boston might be different.
The Bruins have the luxury of having two top-tier goalies in Linus Ullmark and Jeremy Swayman, who jointly received the William M. Jennings Trophy for conceding the fewest goals in the league.
Ullmark is a strong contender for the Vezina Trophy this season, while Swayman also ranks highly in numerous categories. Their combined prowess has been a significant factor in Boston's success.
So, why shouldn't Jim Montgomery capitalize on this advantage?
Frank Seravalli of Daily Faceoff and Pete Blackburn of Bally Sports explored this very question:
''Should the idea of one goalie playing every game for a two-month stretch be a thing of the past?''
