Panthers vs Bruins Prediction & Pick

The Panthers are playing with house money, and from the start of this series, the pundits could only gush over the record-setting Bruins. But the value has and still remains with Florida, even in this tough environment against the best home team in the NHL. But did the experts forget that Florida was the President Cup Trophy winner the season prior?

Sure the Bruins out-shot the Panthers in Game 5 by nearly a 2-1 margin and lost 4-3 in overtime. That's hockey, and puck luck. But no team had more puck luck that the Bruins this season, and the Panthers are good enough to pull this off with 2/1 odds making it more appealing.

Final Score Prediction: Panthers: 4 | Bruins: 3

Panthers vs Bruins Best Bet

If the Panthers score first in Game 7, you'll have a great opportunity to buy some back on the Bruins in live betting and lock in a profit if you bet Florida before the game. While the Bruins have bounced back from losses all year long, they were unable to do it in Game 6.

Now the pressure is on, the sticks are squeezed a little tighter, and penalties are magnified. After this dream of a Bruins season, it feels like a drawn-out nightmare could be building in Boston.

Bet: Panthers Moneyline (+188)
