Boston Bruins vs. Florida Panthers: 2024 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs second-round series odds

The second round of the 2024 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs sees a rematch of a key series from 2023, when the Florida Panthers came back from 3-1 down to beat the Boston Bruins in the first round.

In 2023, the Bruins set NHL records for the most points (135) and wins (65) in a single season in league history. After the upset loss to the Panthers, then-Bruins captain Patrice Bergeron retired and the team regrouped with a 109-point season in 2023/24.

The Panthers ended up losing to the Vegas Golden Knights in the 2023 Stanley Cup Finals, but they won 18 more regular season games in 2023/24 than compared to 2022/23. Florida had four players with over 70 points this season.

Florida beat their interstate rival Tampa Bay Lightning in five games to advance to the second round while Boston overcame their historical rival Toronto Maple Leafs in seven games.

Boston Bruins vs. Florida Panthers playoff history

The Boston Bruins and Florida Panthers have met in two playoff series in history, with the Panthers winning both.

These teams first met in 1996, the Panthers' third season of existence, and Florida beat the Bruins 4-1 in the first round of the playoffs. Rick Tocchet - the current Vancouver Canucks head coach - led the Panthers with four goals in the series while Ray Sheppard had four goals for Boston.

The teams also met last year, in the 2023 first round. Florida came back from a 3-1 deficit to win in seven games as winger Matthew Tkachuk's 11 points led his team. Tyler Bertuzzi and Brad Marchand of the Bruins each had 10 points in the series but neither of Boston's goaltenders - Jeremy Swayman and Linus Ullmark - posted a save percentage above .900.
