A Saturday night overtime loss in Montreal couldn’t help but leave Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery a bit confused with what he had just seen from his team.
Speaking with NESN’s Andy Brickley in the immediate aftermath of the 3-2 defeat, Montgomery noted that his team appeared tired and couldn’t necessarily understand why that was the case given his team’s schedule. (It’s also entirely too early for the ‘fatigue’ thing to become a real issue for the Bruins, especially looking at how their opponent came into this contest playing their third game in the last five nights.)
And to Montgomery’s point there, this only was the B’s third game of the week, and they even got Tuesday completely off after winning in Dallas the night before. Montgomery went on to mention the apparent fatigue in his postgame scrum with the assembled media, and said that it was something the team was going to have to look into moving forward.
It was a valid concern to have with his team after that loss, too, as the Bruins simply didn’t get enough from the club in this contest.
