Bruins Ullmark Opens Up About Playoff Struggles

After arguably the best regular season in NHL history, the Boston Bruins have been sent home. Goaltender Linus Ullmark is one of the team's several disappointments throughout their first-round series against the Florida Panthers.

Ullmark spoke with the media and met the controversy straight on as he admitted he's just going to have to live with the struggles that took place during the Panthers series:

It's pretty evident that I didn't play the way that I wanted to. I wasn't as good as I wanted to be, unfortunately, at the worst time possible. That's something I have to live with. We all go through things in life. We all go through things when it comes playoff time. We all battle our different things - whether it's mentally or if it's physically, we all have our stuff. I had full confidence in my abilities every single game that I played. That's the honest truth. Otherwise, I would've stepped aside

The Vezina trophy front runner saw his save percentage go from .938 during the regular season to a dismal .896 during the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Ullmark, along with all of his Bruins teammates will have to do what they can to get over the disappointment this summer. Look for the Bruins to come back hungry as ever in 2023-24.
