Montgomery wanted to open the Bruins’ season by showcasing their strengths rather than their weaknesses, and the boys from Boston have duly delivered.
Despite being without two crucial players for a while due to injuries, it turns out that the team they possess is still rather strong.
On Wednesday, Boston team go victorious against the Washington Capitals with an incredible 5-2 scoreline to give Jim his first win as the Bruins’ head coach. Pastrnak netted once and contributed with three assists, while skipper Patrice Bergeron also scored. After the whistle blew, Bergeron recovered the ball for Montgomery, marking the first victory after a hard season.
When caught after the match by the press, Jim said the puke would be on the mantle in his son’s room. Jim Mongomery has worked as the gaffer in his first NHL game since 7th Dec 2019. He said the win gives them confidence as a group, and it has been an honor for him to lead the Bruins.

The team nonetheless worked well together, similar to the Boston team, who qualified for the knockouts each of the previous six seasons even without top defenseman McAvoy and winger Marchand, whose injuries were seen as long-term following offseason operations.
Pastrnak contributed to Bergeron’s goal from the power-play with the blast that resulted in a juicy deflection, and he also sent Taylor Hall with a wonderful feed through into the center of the arena to give Boston Bruins a 3-0 lead. Before Pastrnak’s effort, which resulted in Krejci’s game-winning goal with only 3:43 remaining, Washington had already scored twice.
