Bruins keep their season alive with Game 5 win over Panthers

SUNRISE — The Panthers will have to go back up to Boston, as the Bruins forced a sixth game in their second-round series against Florida. The Bruins snapped their three-game losing streak in the series, keeping their season alive with a 2-1 win over the Panthers in Game 5 at Amerant Bank Arena on Tuesday. Morgan Geekie started the Bruins on the right foot, scoring on a pass to him from Jake DeBrusk directly in front of the Panthers’ net less than five minutes into the game. For the first time this series, the Boston defense appeared to have an answer for Florida’s offense. Meanwhile, the Bruins...

Dave Hyde: Sam Bennett finds even bigger way to be Boston’s villain in Panthers’ 3-2 win

Growing up, Sam Bennett’s dad encouraged him to play like rugged Toronto Maple Leafs scorer Doug Gilmour. Bennett saw his developing game more like another physical producer, Mike Richards, of the Philadelphia Flyers and the Los Angeles Kings Boston sees him closer to someone else: Satan on skates. Feels good, doesn’t it, to have a South Florida team so good and a player so on the edge that another city boos him every time he touches the puck? Boston did Sunday in Game 4, except for the most important time Bennett touched it in the Florida Panthers’ 3-2 win. It happened too quickly. Bennett...

Disputed tying goal helps Panthers beat Bruins 3-2 and take 3-1 lead in East semifinal series

By JIMMY GOLEN (AP Sports Writer) BOSTON (AP) — One game after Sam Bennett punched Brad Marchand out of the playoffs, the Panthers forward sent the rest of the Bruins to the brink of elimination with an equally controversial shove to Charlie Coyle’s back. Already drawing boos in the Garden because of a hit on Marchand that the Bruins are calling a sucker punch, Bennett scored the game-tying goal in Game 4 on Sunday night after sending Coyle tumbling into Boston goalie Jeremy Swayman. The goal was upheld by the NHL replay center in Toronto, and Aleksander Barkov scored the game-winner four minutes...

Dave Hyde: Panthers put hurting on Bruins in every way with 6-2 win in Game 3

At the start of Game 3, as if to set the table for this night, Boston captain Brad Marchand leaned into Florida Panthers captain Aleksander Barkov at the opening face-off with some choice words. “Wanna go?” he said. He wanted to fight Barkov right then, right there. Surely he was setting some “tone” or making some “statement” he thought important. Maybe he wanted to pick up this night where Game 2 ended, which was with an undercard of fights topped by the Panthers’ Matthew Tkachuk flattening Boston’s David Pastrnak. “No,’’ Barkov said to Marchand, smartly shaking his head. By night’s end, Marchand...

By JIMMY GOLEN (AP Sports Writer) BOSTON — Vladimir Tarasenko and Carter Verhaeghe scored on the same Bruins double-minor, Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 14 shots and the Florida Panthers beat Boston 6-2 on Friday night and take a 2-1 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinal series. Evan Rodrigues scored twice, and Brandon Montour also connected for the Panthers, who have won back-to-back games after dropping the opener at home. A 6-1 winner Wednesday night, Florida scored 10 straight goals before Jakub Lauko made it 4-1 early in the third and Jake DeBrusk followed with 11:31 left to make it a two-goal...

Three-goal second period gives Bruins Game 1 win over Panthers

SUNRISE — Last time the Boston Bruins and Florida Panthers faced off in the postseason, Florida was the scrappy underdog — the eighth seed who came back from a 3-1 deficit to send the Bruins — who notched a record-setting 135 points in the regular season — home earlier than anticipated. This season, the Panthers were the No. 3 team in the Eastern Conference, one spot ahead of Boston. That made no difference on the ice Monday as the Bruins started this series the way they began last year’s — with a series-opening victory. Boston took a series lead with a 5-1 win at Amerant Bank Arena in Sunrise. “We’ve...
