The Florida Panthers won their series against the Boston Bruins in the first round of the 2023 NHL playoffs with great surprise.

Another surprise was putting goaltender Jeremy Swayman in Game 7. Jim Montgomery was heavily criticized for his decision, but we got some more details about it.

According to Kevin Weekes, Ullmark was playing with a major injury. So much so that the goalie would have modified his technique to be able to participate in the games.

A question arises: why not put Jeremy Swayman in from the beginning in this case? The fans are questioning and we can understand them. The young goaltender has had excellent numbers this season and coming into the seventh and final game of a series like this is far from the ideal scenario, especially for a young goaltender.
