Bruins Vs. Panthers: B's Hope To Take Two More Points From Florida Before Christmas Break

The Bruins are coming off an abbreviated break and are hoping to capitalize on a Panthers team that played less than 24 hours ago.

It's been three days since the Bruins stepped out onto the ice in a game situation, but less than 24 hours since the Panthers have, yet they will be squaring off against each other tonight before taking a little bit of a winter's nap.

The last time the Bruins were out, they took a 3-2 win over the Montreal Canadiens at TD Garden on Monday. Tim Thomas made 33 saves and helped give the B's a 19-2-1 record since the beginning of November.

Just two days prior to that, the B's ousted the Flyers 6-0 and were momentarily tied in the Eastern Conference for first place. They currently sit just below Philadelphia now, but have first place in the Division held down quite a bit with 45 points. Toronto is in second with 38.

Florida on the other hand played just last night against Ottawa where they fell 4-3 in overtime despite coming back three different times in the game from one goal deficits. Even with that loss though, they still hold first place in the Southeast division by six points.

The last time these two teams met against each other, the Panthers came into Boston and took a 2-0 win back on December 8--just one of two losses for the Bruins in the month of December.

The puck drops at 7 p.m. at TD Garden and will be broadcast on NESN and aired on 98.5 The Sports Hub.
