8 a.m. ET: The Bruins have gotten some much needed rest and relaxation in the last few days, and they did so under the comfort of the Florida sun. However, it’s back to business on Sunday afternoon in Sunrise, Fla. The B’s will finish up their two-game swing through Florida with a showdown against the Panthers. The Bruins will look to add to the Panthers’ ongoing misery, as the defending Southeast Division champs have stumbled out of the gate this season. Many of the Panthers’ issues come back to problems in their own end. Only Philadelphia (62) has given up more goals than Florida (61) so far this season. It’s been Jose Theodore who once upon a time won a Hart Trophy that has seen the bulk of the starts for the Panthers. He’s been pretty awful, with a 3.37 goals against to go along with an .893 save percentage. Then again, the defense in front of Theodore and the rest of the goaltending contingency hasn’t been anything special, either, with the Panthers allowing 31 shots per game. One of the few positives this season has been the play of Jonathan Huberdeau. The rookie, who was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2011 draft, leads the team in points. He has 8-5-13 totals through the first 17 games of his NHL career, and he’s two games removed from notching two goals and two assists in a win over the Flyers. The Bruins, of course, are heading in the opposite direction. Boston was very impressive offensively on Thursday night against Tampa Bay, scoring four goals en route to a 4-2 win. Nathan Horton was very impressive, and the B’s will hope he can stay rolling when he hits the ice against his former team. Puck drop is scheduled for 3 p.m. at the BB&T Center.
