Marc Bertrand: Jeremy Swayman is wearing down a little bit

On Wednesday's edition of Zolak & Bertrand, Marc "Beetle" Bertrand breaks down some of his concerns about Jeremy Swayman starting to wear down a little bit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cc_cvFpe09k I'm not saying start Linus Ullmark... Marc Bertrand: I feel like (Jeremy) Swayman is having a tough time right now. Scott Zolak: Well, think about it. You're facing elimination. It's the added pressure of that and just the added pressure of, you know, your team's best player and all their hopes hang on him. Marc Bertrand: I think he's wearing down a little bit. Does he look tired? Maybe a little bit. A little tired,? Scott Zolak: Ride him here. Ride that horse. Just give him some water. Marc Bertrand: I mean, he's handling it. He made a bunch of saves last night, right? T-Bone: He made the biggest play of the game! Marc Bertrand: I'm not saying he's incapable. I'm just I don't think it's coming as easy to him right now as it was at earlier points. He's just wearing down a little bit. He's still the guy. I'm not telling you to go back to (Linus) Ullmark or anything like that. Scott Zolak: Kind of had that tone a little bit. Marc Bertrand: I'm just saying that I think you're seeing that he's adjusting to having to play every night. It's an adjustment. Now, if this is what an adjustment looks like for Jeremy Swayman, then he's fine being your every night goalie. So Swayman's performance last night was good enough to get the job done. And if they are to win this series, they're going to need more of it. They are. On the Bruins coming back home for a Game 6. They have found ways to be eliminated many times at home. In their last 13 postseasons, the Bruins have been eliminated at home nine times. This thing will be over by the end of the first.
