The Boston Bruins have something good cooking with goaltenders Jeremy Swayman and Linus Ullmark.
A consistent one-two for the Bruins throughout the year in the sense that the Bruins have had at least one of them playing at a high level at any point throughout the regular season, it’s a tandem that’s worked. So much so that the Bruins are unsure who will get the call when the Bruins drop the puck on the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs as early as May 2nd.
“Oh yeah,” Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy said last Friday when asked if the competition between the two is still open. “I think we’ve relied on both of them. They’ve both played well for the most part.
“We’re still — I guess if you’re asking who would be the guy for the playoffs — we’re undecided right now.”
No matter their pick, someone’s making their first career playoff start when the Black and Gold start their quest for a Stanley Cup next month. It’s as true an unknown as the Bruins have tried to navigate in their crease since Cassidy took over as the team’s head coach in 2017.
But just where will the Bruins land?
