* Preview:

The Panthers have not won in Boston since Dec. 8, 2011, and have been outscored 37-9 in nine straight losses at TD Garden. "We've come into a lot of buildings this year that haven't been kind to us but we played good hockey and we won some hockey games, so hopefully we'll do the same in Boston tomorrow," Gerard Gallant said. Florida is on its fifth two-game losing streak since Feb. 8; the Panthers are 9-9-3 since then. (More) Preview:

Boston (39-27-8) totaled three goals in three regulation defeats on the West Coast before losing 5-2 at the New York Rangers on Wednesday. The Bruins are 0 for 9 on the power play in this slide. It has been costly with Boston trailing Tampa Bay and Florida (40-24-9) by three points in the Atlantic. The Bruins have played one more game than those clubs. Even worse, they are only three points ahead of Philadelphia and Detroit and could be out of the playoffs altogether if the losing continues. (More)
