Bruins fans were shocked to learn that head coach Jim Montgomery decided to make some changes to the lineup prior to game 5.

Montgomery decided to alter the lineup which was a strange decision since the team had been playing so well the past couple of games.

I'm confused on the lineup changes. 4th line has been awesome. Shatty has looked good. Up 3-1. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Doesn't make much sense.




The Bruins head coach decided to play Matt Grzelcyk instead of Kevin Shattenkirk on defense while replacing Johnny Beecher with Justin Brazeau up front.

Clearly the changes did not help as the Bruins lost in overtime to a Leafs team that was missing their top forward in Auston Matthews.
