Panthers advance to Eastern Conference Final, knock out Bruins in Game 6

The Florida Panthers advanced to the Eastern Conference Final after knocking out the Boston Bruins in six games on Friday night. 


Gustav Forsling scored the game winning goal with just 1:33 remaining in the third period, leading the Panthers to 2-1 victory.


Florida has ended the Bruins season in two-straight postseasons — winning six straight playoff games at TD Garden en route to that.   


The Bruins struck first on Friday, grabbing a 1-0 lead after Pavel Zacha scored off a breakaway with just 52 seconds remaining in the first. 


Replay showed that Panthers forward Carter Verhaeghe was interfered with by Bruins defender Brandon Carlo in the lead up to the goal, but there was no call made on the ice. 


In the second period, Florida’s youngest player Anton Lundell got his team back in the game with his second goal of the postseason, coming with 7:16 left in the frame. 


Lundell, 22, already had 41 playoff games under his belt. 


The game remained tight until the final minutes of the game and that’s when Florida took the series.


Gustav Forsling scored the game winning goal with 1:33 left in regulation, his second goal of the series.  


The Panthers will return to the Eastern Conference Final (ECF) for a second-straight year and will look to defend their title against the  President’s Trophy winning New York Rangers. 


Game 1 of the ECF will be on Wednesday, May 22 at 8 p.m. ET at Madison Square Garden in New York.
