The Boston Bruins once again didn’t take the bait from the Florida Panthers and now head home with a 3-1 series lead.
That and more in your BHN Bruins Daily:
The Boston Bruins took advantage of an undisciplined Florida Panthers team and earned a 6-2 win to take a commanding 3-1 series lead. Taylor Hall led the way with two goals and an assist.
Florida Panthers winger Matthew Tkachuk was his usual pest self but crossed the line a few too many times in Game 4. One of those times was with Boston Bruins goalie Linus Ullmark, who was ready to fight Tkachuk as time wound down in the game.
The Florida Panthers can feel reality setting in after the Game 4 loss, and they know the end of their season could very well come on Wednesday in Game 5 at TD Garden.
