The Boston Bruins are set to get their captain back for Game 5 against the Florida Panthers.
That and more in your BHN Bruins Daily:
All signs are pointing to Boston Bruins captain Patrice Bergeron returning to the Bruins’ lineup for a potential series-clinching Game 5 against the Florida Panthers tonight at TD Garden. Unfortunately, though, fellow Bruins center David Krejci has been ruled out already.
Boston Bruins veteran winger Brad Marchand has ironically become a pillar for discipline and has been the quasi-captain for his team in Bergeron’s absence.
Another player that has played a major role in the Boston Bruins having a chance to advance to the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs with a win tonight has been defenseman Charlie McAvoy.
Who will start in net for the Florida Panthers in Game 5? Sergei Bobrovsky or Alex Lyon?
So far in the series, the Florida Panthers have lost the net-front battle to the Boston Bruins.
