Scouting Report: The Bruins will try to win their fourth straight following a four-game losing streak, and have defeated the Panthers in all four games this season. "I don't think we should be there," coach Bruce Cassidy said about the risk of taking Florida lightly. "Obviously if we had clinched and were set, then you guard against that. We just lived it [Thursday] night [in a 2-0 win against the Dallas Stars] where we got in front and maybe thought, 'Well, they won't have their push.' And they pushed. Florida will be the same way. Sometimes it's a dangerous opponent, especially them, they've got some firepower coming in here with nothing to lose." (More via NHL)
