Bruins Defense Smothered Panthers As Squad Takes Early First Period Lead


The Boston Bruins couldn’t have asked for a better start against the Florida Panthers.

Boston enters the Saturday night clash with Florida riding a five-game losing streak, and came out strong hoping turn things around. Jake DeBrusk got the Bruins on the board with his eighth goal of the season 14:41 into the game, and Jaroslav Halak stopped all 11 shots he faced throughout the period.

The Bruins’ defense was impressive throughout the first twenty minutes while never really giving the Panthers an opportunity to get their offense rolling.
