Scouting Report:

Tom Rowe still hasn't had a home game as the interim coach of the Panthers. But Monday night, Rowe will be coaching a "home" game when the Panthers visit the Boston Bruins, the fifth game of a six-game road trip. Rowe, the first American to score 30 goals in the NHL, hails from Lynn, Ma., just up the road from TD Garden. His brother is a retired police lieutenant there and his family still local. Monday night, the Panthers bring a 1-1-1 record under Rowe into the continuation of their long trip with their new coach. The Panthers, who lost 2-0 in Ottawa Saturday night, face a team that just won a pair of 2-1 games, at home against the Carolina Hurricanes in a shootout last Thursday and a regulation win at Buffalo on Saturday. Tuukka Rask, who has been outstanding in goal for the Bruins, made a season-high 35 saves, 17 in the third period, to win at Buffalo -- after Anton Khudobin was the winner against Carolina, the first Boston victory of the season by a goalie not named Rask.
