The Bruins head to Florida to take on the Panthers in the 5th and final regular season matchup this season. The Bruins look look to make it a clean sweep over the Panthers as they have won the first four meetings and outscoring the Panthers, 17-6.
The Bruins also take with them to Florida a 4-game winning streak along with a 9-game point streak on the road (6-0-3). The Bruins are coming off a shootout 4-3 victory against the Lightning in which the Bruins won their first game of the season when trailing by 2 goals.
Given we had a game last night, along with an OT affair, I'm expecting the Bruins to be a big sluggish tonight and I would think we see shorter than normal shifts. Luckily this is against Florida so perhaps sluggish legs won't hurt too much.
Also, a Bruins regulation win will eliminate the Panthers from the division title chase which means two teams will be down; Buffalo and Florida. Just means we continue inching closer to that playoff berth.
Let's get this W and take a W5 into Montreal where we'll be looking to beat the Canadiens for the first time this season.
LET'S GO BRUINS!!!!!!!!!
