The Bruins’ power-play attack still leaves much to be desired, but the B’s capitalized with a Panther in the box on Sunday.
Just over two minutes into the second period, a poorly timed change by Florida allowed Boston to make a 5-on-3 rush into the Panthers’ zone. Chris Bourque drew a pair of defensemen to him near the right boards, leaving a wide-open lane for Daniel Paille. Paille’s shot was disrupted by Florida’s Peter Mueller, but the puck slid right to Chris Kelly, who fired it past Jakob Markstrom for Boston’s third goal of the game.
See NESN’s Dale Arnold and Barry Pederson break down the goal in the video above.

Sunday’s Captain Morgan Legendary Moment laid the foundation for the Bruins’ historic Stanley Cup run of 2011.
Back in June of 2010, the B’s sent struggling defenseman Dennis Wideman and a pair of draft picks to the Panthers in exchange for forwards Nathan Horton and Gregory Campbell. Only third-round pick Kyle Rau is still in the Florida system — though he has not suited...
It looks like rookie Dougie Hamilton is impressing the right people! The general manager of the Boston Bruins, Peter Chiarelli, is realistic in that he knows that some struggle is part of having a talented, young rookie on his team but he is also impressed by him. Hamilton is only 19 years old and playing [...]
The Bruins were left shorthanded for four minutes on Sunday, and they lost one of their best players for an additional 10 minutes as well, but head coach Claude Julien had no problem with the situation.
Having the league’s top-ranked penalty kill may have something to do with that, though.
Milan Lucic was given a double-minor Sunday for retaliating against what he thought was a...
With a 4-1 win over the Panthers on Sunday, the Bruins enter the most brutal portion of their schedule on a three-game winning streak.
The B’s penalty-kill unit was dominant during the stretch, as it has been all season, and has held opponents scoreless on 20 consecutive power plays. In fact, Boston has allowed just three power-play goals all season, good for a 94.8 percent penalty...
The Bruins are off to a great start this season. With just two regulation losses through the team’s first 14 games, it’s safe to say that coach Claude Julien has to be happy with what’s transpired so far. What might be most surprising about the team’s success, however, is who is providing some of the biggest contributions to the roster.
Who would have thought that resident...
Listen to these announcers from the Florida Panthers, the Bruins forward Milan Lucic wold have been better off if he had just challenged Mike Weaver to a fight, than react this way. It was a blown call by the on ice officials.
Weaver just got cross-checked by Lucic. Appropriately heading to the box. 4 minute power play for the #FlaPanthers

Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara is known for his size and strength, standing at 6’9″ 255 lbs. Chara has won the hardest shot competition in the NHL All Star game multiple times, and owns the record for the hardest shot at 108.8 MPH. After his goal on Sunday against the Florida Panthers, it might be time they add him to the shootout portion of the skills competition....
BC has been a long time fan of the Florida Panthers Ice Girls. We’ve featured Karlyn Olson and a few other girls before so when we heard they had a new photo shoot we got excited. The quality of these new photos isn’t great but from the look of it we’ll be seeing some great photos down the road.
That’s Karlyn on the left and other BC favorite Danielle Castellano on the...
What a goal by Zdeno Chara. Birth rates are gonna sky rocket in nine months.
Wow!!! For a big man the Boston Bruins defensman Zdeno Chara moves pretty well. The Florida Panthers center Jonathan Huberdeau, not so much.
Jonathan Huberdeau has been a bright spot in an otherwise disappointing season for the Florida Panthers thus far.
The rookie out of Saint-Jerome, Quebec, leads the team in both goals and points through 18 games, and earned a spot on highlight reels around the country with his nifty penalty-shot goal against Philadelphia’s Ilya Bryzgalov on Thursday. The third overall pick in 2011...
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...
