Hot on the heels of a disappointing 4-3 loss to Los Angeles, the Florida Panthers (23-22-6) will get right back at it tonight when they host the league-leading (gulp!) Boston Bruins (38-6-4) this evening at FLA Live Arena. After going on an inspired run under difficult circumstances, the Panthers have lost three straight and all the sudden look every bit an also-ran again. The Bruins are coming off a 3-2 loss to Tampa Bay on Thursday, which brought a six-game winning streak to a halt. Boston has not lost back-to-back all season, so the Panthers have their work cut out for them tonight.
