Boston Bruins vs Florida Panthers
The Bruins have broken every record imaginable this season. They will continue their great play into the postseason, beating the Panthers in five games.
There is no one MVP here because of how great this team is overall. As for a bold prediction, the Panthers’ one win in this series will come in Game 1.
This is as lopsided a matchup as you will find in the 2023 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Bruins will have their way with the Panthers, eliminating the Cats in four games.
The series MVP here will be David Pastrnak. None of the four games in this tilt will be closer than a two-goal margin.
The Boston Bruins will take down the Florida Panthers in five games. Matthew Tkachuk will do his best to make it interesting, but the Bruins will be too much for the Florida team that barely made it in.
The Boston Bruins’ historical season continues in the first round against the Florida Panthers. Look for the Bruins to continue their winning ways and eliminate the Panthers in five games.
Series MVP will be David Krejci, and Hampus Lindholm will have more points than Patrice Bergeron.
I am going with the Bruins to win this series in five games. The historic season this team just had will carry over to the first round and ultimately take care of the Panthers pretty easily.
The series MVP is going to be David Pastrnak, who, in tying into my out-of-the-box prediction, will score a goal in all five games of the series. I will give the Panthers one game because of their talented forward group.
I can see just three teams that can come through the Bruins. Boston conceded three or more goals in regulation in just 24 games and four were against the Panthers. I’ll go with the Panthers in six.
Matthew Tkachuk is the series MVP with a point per game, and Sergei Bobrovsky becomes an absolute beast in net, completely overshadowing Ullmark with more than a .925 save percentage.
The 2019 Tampa Bay vs Columbus series was just one series, and Boston will beat Florida in five games. I predict that Alex Lyon will continue his strong play into the postseason and be the reason the series is not a sweep.
The series MVP will actually be at the other end of the ice, Linus Ullmark. I predict that one of Don Sweeney’s trade deadline moves will pay off big time and Tyler Bertuzzi will end his first NHL playoff series with the most points on either team.
