The Florida Panthers got their revenge on the Boston Bruins by handing them a 6-1 defeat in Game two of the Eastern Conference Second Round at Amerant Bank Arena. The Panthers have evened the series at 1-1, with the action shifting to Boston for Game three on Friday.

The Panthers’ captain, Aleksander Barkov, had an excellent game, netting two goals and assisting on two others. Brandon Montour also had a strong showing with a goal and two assists, while Sam Reinhart contributed with four assists. The solid team play overshadowed the Bruins early lead and revealed Florida’s offensive depth.

Despite an initial lead by Boston with Charlie Coyle scoring at 12:12 of the first period, the Panthers quickly regained control. The equalizer came early in the second period from Steven Lorentz, followed by a go-ahead goal from Barkov. The momentum firmly shifted in favor of Florida with a buzzer-beater goal by Gustav Forsling at the end of the second period, making it 3-1.

The third period saw the Panthers extending their lead, with Eetu Luostarinen and Barkov adding more goals, the latter on a power play. Brandon Montour rounded off the scoring with a shorthanded goal, sealing a dominant 6-1 victory.

Sergei Bobrovsky, Florida’s goaltender, had a relatively quiet night but was effective when called upon, making 14 saves. On the other end, Boston’s Jeremy Swayman was pulled after conceding four goals, and his replacement, Linus Ullmark, allowed two more.

The game also saw its share of rough play typical of intense playoff games, with multiple misconduct penalties handed out in the final period as frustrations boiled over.

With this win the Panthers avoided going down 2-0 a deficit that would have put the Panthers at a disadvantage that they probably would not have been able to overcome, especially with the series heading back to Boston. Both teams now prepare for game three, where the Bruins will look to leverage their home advantage to regain the series lead. The Panthers need to be ready and focused they don’t have much time to celebrate their victory as game three is on Friday.
