The Bruins were flying high with two-straight victories to take a 3-1 lead in the series before Wednesday’s game. A win would advance the B’s to the second round and send the Panthers packing. Alas, Florida managed to keep their postseason alive with a win and force a Game 6.

Florida’s Anthony Duclair scored the game’s first goal Wednesday night with an assist from Carter Verhaeghe. Brad Marchand netted his fourth goal of the series with a power play shot in the second to even the scoreboard. Both teams alternated goals in the third period. Down one, the Bruins’ Taylor Hall found the back of the net in the third period for his fifth goal of the playoffs and force overtime.

Six minutes into overtime, the Panthers’ Matthew Tkachuk scored the game-winner and kept his team alive. Sam Bennett (3) and Sam Reinhart (2) both added goals in the 4-3 win. Patric Bergeron, in his first game back from injury, scored a power-play goal for Boston in the losing effort.

Sergei Bobrovsky saved 44-of-47 shots faced in goal for the Cats. Linus Ullmark went 21-for-25 tending the net for the Bruins.

With a win, Boston will advance to face the Toronto Maple Leafs in the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The Bruins hold the shortest odds to win the Stanley Cup — which would be the franchise’s seventh title, most recently in 2011. Florida has made the Stanley Cup finals just once in team history, losing in 1996 to the Colorado Avalanche.

These are the scores from the first five games of the Panthers vs. Bruins series.

  • Game 1: Bruins 3-1
  • Game 2: Panthers 6-3
  • Game 3: Bruins 4-2
  • Game 4: Bruins 6-2
  • Game 5: Panthers 4-3
