Jim Montgomery blows a gasket on the bench after Bruins penalty

Published May 14, 2024 at 8:57 PM

Jim Montgomery, head coach of the Boston Bruins, was involved in a hilarious sequence in game 5 against the Florida Panthers while trying to call a dive.

Emotions are high tonight as the Boston Bruins and Florida Panthers compete in game 5 of their second round 2024 Stanley Cup Playoffs series. A loss for Boston means an exit from the postseason, and head coach Jim Montgomery is doing all he can to make sure that doesn't happen.

In the second half of the second period, Mason Lohrei took a two-minute penalty for hooking. Montgomery firmly believes the member of the Florida Panthers made the play look far worse than it was. He was very animated while trying to explain to the officials.

As you likely expected, it didn't work, and Lohrei served the two minutes anyway. In that case, no harm was done.

"Can't get mad about that onethat's a hook all day, [Eetu] Luostarinen might've gone down a liiiiiittle easy but Lohrei has to be smarter there especially knowing FLA has been drawing calls all series long."

It seems that the Boston Bruins are unravelling despite leading 2-1 heading into the 3rd period of the game. In an elimination game, the players take after the coaches, if Montgomery can't control his reactions, it doesn't bode well for the rest of the team
