The head coach Bruce Cassidy era is over. To illuminate, Cassidy was not offered a contract to return to the Bruins. Cassidy took over for the fired Claude Julien in the final quarter of 2016-17. He led the Bruins to the 2019 Stanley Cup Final. Boston lost the seventh game of that Final at home to the St. Louis Blues. The loss proved to be the closest that Cassidy ever came. Cassidy was fired after the end of season one-on-one meetings with players that whined about his autocratic ways. Now, Jim Montgomery is taking over as head coach.

In sum, the 2021-22 Boston Bruins finished 51-26-5 for 107 points. The Carolina Hurricanes eliminated Boston in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Boston ranked 15th for goal scoring, 15th for power play efficiency, 4th for goals against, and 9th for penalty killing.

New head coach Jim Montgomery compiled a 60-43-10 record as head coach of the Dallas Stars. He was fired early in the 2019-20 season for personal conduct issues that regarded alcohol abuse. Montgomery won an NCAA national championship as head coach of Denver. Also, he won two United States Hockey League championships as head coach of Dubuque.

Montgomery was seen as an out-of-the-box hire that was widely praised. He is seen in NHL circles as having a lot of ability.

Montgomery’s first act as Boston head coach was to reach out to team captain Patrice Bergeron. Bergeron is contemplating retirement, but Montgomery and the Bruins clearly want him back. Last year Bergeron, age 37, scored 25 goals with 40 assists and a +26.

Another veteran forward, David Krejci, is not expected to return and should instead play in the Czech Republic.

Although rumored to be on the trading block, right wing David Pastrnak remains on the team. Last year “Pasta” scored 40 goals with 37 assists with a +13. But in the playoffs, he had an underwhelming performance with two goals in six games.

Boston Bruins History

Founded in 1924, the Bruins are one of the NHL’s so-called Original Six franchises. Boston has a total of six Stanley Cup championships in its history. Their most recent Cup championship was in 2011.

The franchise's Glory Years coincided with the emergence of Hall of Fame defenseman Bobby Orr in the late 1960s. Those Big Bad Bruins featured stars such as Phil Esposito, Derek Sanderson, and Gerry Cheevers and won Stanley Cup championships in 1970 and 1972 while being in the hunt every season. Esposito reflects on that time and ruefully says that the Bruins should have won several more Stanley Cup championships. Boston was certainly loaded and one of the most complete teams in NHL history. In those days, the Bruins owned the town, which may have gone to their heads. Esposito admits to many extracurricular activities by the Big Bad Bruins that were not conducive to winning championships.

Following that glamour era, famous NHL TV commentator Don Cherry coached the Bruins from 1974 through 1979. The Don Cherry Bruins were more of a lunch-bucket team of grinders. Orr and Esposito were gone by 1976, but Cherry posted records comparable to the Big Bad Bruins. However, the Cherry-era Bruins never had a finishing scorer like Esposito or Orr, and they lacked the clutch goaltending of Cheevers.

The 2011 Bruins were a surprise Stanley Cup champion of drones and goaltender Tim Thomas, which was indicative of that era’s style of heavy hockey.

In 2019 the Bruins made the Stanley Cup Final against the St. Louis Blues. Boston hosted the seventh and deciding game but was dominated in a 4-1 loss that still haunts the team. Boston was the closest to winning the Stanley Cup in the Bruce Cassidy era.

New head coach Jim Montgomery will try and pick the Stanley Cup lock from now on.
