Ullmark continuing to prove he should start Game 1

Published April 3, 2024 at 7:11 PM

The Bruins have two extremely solid goaltenders that could start the playoffs for them but after another great game, it is hard not to give the advantage to Ullmark.

Ullmark had an incredible performance last night against the Predators as he had a 31 save shutout.

Ully was outstanding 👌

The Swedish goaltender has been on fire since the March 8th trade deadline as he ranks 4th in goals against average with a 1.51GAA and save percentage with a .950 across all goalies in the league with more than 3 starts since the 8th.

While Ullmark has been on fire since the deadline, Swayman has been struggling as he has a .859 save percentage with a 3.37 GAA since then. The young Bruins netminder had a very strong first half of the season but has slowed down tremendously since then.

There still is two weeks left to the season and Bruins management have yet to say who they are leaning towards to start Game 1 of the playoffs but it is hard to not see Ullmark in the crease for that game.
