The Boston Bruins have blown a 3-1 series lead and will now have their historic season at risk of being diminished in Game 7 against the Florida Panthers on Sunday night at TD Garden.
That and more in your BHN Bruins Daily:
The Boston Bruins lost Game 7-5 and have now choked away a 3-1 series lead. As a result, they’re now headed into a do-or-die Game 7 on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET at TD Garden.
Boston Bruins goalie Linus Ullmark had arguably the worst game of his career and allowed six goals on 32 shots. Will Bruins head coach finally just name a starter well ahead of game-time and avoid this distraction that’s hung over his team the whole series?
The Boston Bruins made other lineup changes for Game 6, inserting Connor Clifton in on the blue line for Matt Gryzelcyk and then David Krejci in for Trent Frederic. The former did not go too well.
Boston Bruins winger David Pastrnak promised he would shoot more in Game 6 and that’s exactly what he did unloading seven shots on Panthers goalie Sergei Bobrovsky. Two of those shots got by Bobrovsky and Pastrnak now has four goals in six games.
Credit to Florida Panthers forward Matthew Tkachuk who called a Game 6 win for his team and delivered with two goals and an assist.
Here’s the Florida Hockey Now side on the big Game 6 win for the Florida Panthers.
