Toronto Maple Leafs coach Sheldon Keefe says Boston Bruins coach Jim Montgomery is wrong in saying that Bruins goaltender Jeremy Swayman in in his team's head

It's been a real battle on the ice so far, and the Toronto Maple Leafs, Boston Bruins first-round 2024 Stanley Cup Playoffs series is starting to become a war of words as well. The head coaches of both team took some time to take digs at each other today after the Bruins victory in game 3 in Toronto.
At a news conference, Boston coach Jim Montgomery brought up Max Domi of the Maple Leafs running into Boston goaltender Jeremy Swayman during a TV timeout.
Montgomery said he thinks Swayman's excellent play in the series so far is getting to Toronto, and in the last five regular and postseason games is getting to Toronto
"Bruins coach Jim Montgomery on Jeremy Swayman being 5-0 against Leafs this season

'When Domi goes off the bench and bumps him on purpose, makes me think that maybe he's in their head a little bit.'"

Maple Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe was told about Montgomery's remarks later in the day. Keefe brushed it off as a silly comment.
"After Jim Montgomery suggests Max Domi's bump on Jeremy Swayman is a sign Swayman is in the #leafs head, Sheldon Keefe says: 'With that logic you would say every time they bump into one of our guys maybe we're in their heads. I don't think that has anything to do with anything.'"

Game 3 of the series featured a lot more pushing, shoving and hitting than any game so far, and it's only going to get more intense from here. Brad Marchand, who played a big role in the last match, told the Leafs after scoring that "it's over in five."
