Bruins vs Panthers Prediction & Pick
After winning both games in Florida and taking a 3-1 series lead back to Boston on Wednesday, the Bruins were unable to close things out at home, falling 4-3 in the first overtime game of the series.
Boston will look to rebound at BB&T Center, where it outscored Florida 10-4 during Games 3 and 4 combined. The Bruins have been outstanding on the road all season and have won 10 straight away games heading into Friday's tilt.
The Panthers responded with a terrific effort in Game 5 with their backs to the wall, but they'll need to do the same in Game 6 if they want to keep their season alive. Boston has lost consecutive games only twice all season, so it's hard to envision Florida coming out on top again.
Final Score Prediction: Bruins: 3 | Panthers: 2

Bruins vs Panthers Best Bet
After dropping back-to-back games at TD Garden, the Bruins may actually be more comfortable on the road at this point. They put up a strong effort in Game 5 but the breaks just didn't go their way. All signs point to a bounce-back performance from them in Game 6, similar to how they won Game 3 in Florida after losing Game 2 in Boston.
The Bruins have excelled at bouncing back from losses all year long and will do so again on Friday.
Bet: Boston Bruins 60-Minute Moneyline (-120)
