Boston Bruins vs Florida Panthers Analysis

The Boston Bruins have just one win away from advancing to the Second Round with their offense leading the charge with 19 goals scored in this series – 13 of them within three games alone. Taylor Hall, Brad Marchand and Tyler Bertuzzi have scored 11 goals and nine assists between them as part of a top two lines effort in this series, but all offensive lines have contributed positively. Jake DeBrusk, Pavel Zacha and Marcus Foligno combined for four goals and eight assists while defensemen Dmitry Orlov and Charlie McAvoy each added eight point assists to facilitate more offense. Defense has been inconsistent throughout this series but recently, allowing 15 goals including four in Game 5.

Matthew Tkachuk has made headlines this season with three goals and four assists, including the overtime winner in Game 5, but Carter Verhaeghe and Sam Bennett have also contributed heavily.
