8 a.m. ET: The Bruins were just a few minutes from finishing off what would have been a very impressive two-game road trip to start their busiest week of the season. That apparently wasn’t in the cards, however, as Boston coughed up a two-goal lead late Monday in Pittsburgh as the Penguins stormed back to win 3-2. The B’s return home Thursday night to continue their stretch of five games in seven days by welcoming the Florida Panthers to town. On paper, it seems like the perfect chance for the Bruins to get back on the winning track. The Panthers come in with the NHL’s worst record, and they don’t really show signs of improving. Florida comes in having lost two in a row, and they are 2-6-2 in their last 10 games. They have been ravaged by injuries, and the B’s would absolutely love to add to the Panthers’ misery. Boston won the first matchup of the season between these two when they rolled over the Panthers 4-1 on Feb. 24. The Bruins jumped out to a 3-1 lead through two periods, and they were actually to able that lead. Holding third-period leads has been a bit of an issue since then, as evidenced by Tuesday’s loss to the Penguins. Puck drop from the Garden is scheduled for 7 p.m.
