One of the Bruins’ strengths all season has been the outstanding goaltending from their tandem of Jeremy Swayman and Linus Ullmark.

At the beginning of the Stanley Cup playoffs, Boston head coach Jim Montgomery kept the rotation that earned the Bruins the second seed in the Atlantic Division but Swayman’s exceptional play more or less forced the second-year coach to ride the hot goalie.

In seven starts, Swayman has posted a .955 save percentage and a 1.42 goals-against average by stopping 210 of 220 shots he’s faced, which is top of the league in the postseason. He has allowed two or fewer goals in each of his starts, which is tied for second-best in NHL history behind Clint Benedict, Jacques Plante, and Terry Sawchuck.
