This is why Johnny Beecher should be in the Game 1 lineup

Published April 17, 2024 at 3:40 PM

Forward Johnny Beecher was recently sent down to Providence as they brought up Jaysen Megna but it looks like Beecher will be in the lineup for game 1.

Head coach Jim Montgomery spoke to the media regarding the idea of having Jesper Boqvist play the majority of the game but having Beecher in the lineup to take defensive zone faceoffs.

«We're going to have Beecher take the draws because he's so good at it. They lose a draw in-zone, Beecher is going to play center until we get out of the zone,» said Montgomery. «But when it goes 5-on-5, we want Boqvist playing center.» - Montgomery

Beecher has had an incredible year at the faceoff dot for the Bruins and has put up 10 points in 52 games this season as well.

It will be interesting to see how things play out if Montgomery ends up using both Boqvist and Beecher for game 1.
