This Florida Panthers team is the real deal. They continue to win in dominating fashion and it doesn’t look like it will stop anytime soon. Their offseason acquisitions have paid off substantially and they continue to roll. Tonight was no different from their previous six games. This game was based on a huge momentum shift in the second period.
After the Bruins seemed to have the better of play in the first period, the rest of the game was all Florida. These Panthers put up some impressive shifts against Boston’s best to shut them down all night long. As a result, the Panthers are now 7-0-0 after this 4-1 win over the Boston Bruins. A big part of the Panthers’ success this year is the resurgence of Sergei Bobrovsky. Big Bob is shutting down the door on all his opponants and is clearly a huge factor to any success this Panthers team will have this season. He is their goalie this season and fans are starting to hop on that train.

Huge Second Period For Florida
When your team is outshot 15-5 to start the game, the mood shouldn’t be a good one in the locker room. The Panthers took that situation and turned it around big time in the second period. With the score tied 1-1 after one period, Florida never took their foot off the gas pedal in the second period.
In that period, the Panthers managed to take the lead thanks to a goal from Eetu Luostarinen. They also shut down any offense that the Bruins were willing to put up. The Bruins only managed to put up two shots on goal in that period. Any momentum the Bruins tried to create was immediately shut down by the Panthers. This defense, led by Aaron Ekblad, is for real and they can shut down any team. The “perfection line” in Boston was completely invisible tonight.

Secondary Scoring For Panthers
The Panthers might have the most balanced lineup in the NHL. The acquisitions of Sam Bennett and Sam Reinhart over the last two years have already paid dividends for this organization. The superstars on this team of Jonathan Huberdeau and Alex Barkov can change a game in an instant. Their secondary scoring got the job done tonight against a solid opponent in Boston.
The four goals tonight for the Panthers were scored by Mason Marchment (1), Eetu Luostarinen (1), Anthony Duclair (5), and Owen Tippett (1). Besides Duclair, those three guys are not household names in any hockey house. It is nice to get goals from your superstars, but when you can get goals from your bottom six is another story. Florida has it all this season.
