Final: Panthers 3, Bruins 2

All done in Rochester. Panthers, 3-2.

17:30 3d period: Panthers 3-2
Heck of a backcheck by David Krejci to start an odd-man rush. Brad Marchand can’t get the shot off.

13:14 3d period: Panthers 3-2
Another gem by Tyler Plante, this time robbing Zach Hamill. Earlier on the shift, Bryan Allen laid out Joe Colborne.

10:18 3d period: Panthers 3-2
Save of the night by Tyler Plante on Jared Knight. Sprawling to get over to snatch Knight’s shot. Nice feed by Shawn Thornton.

9:27 3d period: Panthers 3-2
Big-time collision between Milan Lucic and Keaton Ellerby at the blue line. Ellerby initiates the hit.


5:52 3d period: Panthers 3-2
Jeff LoVecchio scores on the rebound. Zach Hamill with the first shot.

5:40 3d period: Panthers 3-1
Brad Marchand stirring things up. Trips up Tyler Plante, which brings Erik Gudbranson calling, but a linesman steps in. Bush-league stuff by Marchand.

20:00 2d period: Panthers 3-1
More spirited play from Brad Marchand. Not getting much help, though. Zdeno Chara back to the right side as Nathan McIver comes out of the box.

12:31 2d period: Panthers 3-1
Far too easy for opponents to push Zach Hamill around. Needs to be stronger on his skates.

10:39 2d period: Panthers 3-1
Tomas Vokoun out, Tyler Plante in.

1:15 2d period: Panthers 3-1
Dennis Wideman goes down low, scoops up a rebound, and roofs a PP shot over Nolan Schaefer. Who’s this Wideman guy?

20:00 1st period: Panthers 2-1
Zdeno Chara started the period on the right side with Nathan McIver. But with McIver gone for 17 (instigator, fighting, 10-minute misconduct), Chara went back to the left. Should be interesting to see if Chara gets any more right-side looks. Good jump from Michael Ryder and Brad Marchand, who are being pushed by Jordan Caron. Not much from Zach Hamill and Joe Colborne so far.

19:24 1st period: Panthers 2-1
Tough shift for Mark Stuart. Couple giveaways in his own zone lead to David Booth chance.


16:57 1st period: Panthers 2-1
David Booth takes Andrew Ference wide and snaps a wrist shot over Nolan Schaefer. Skilled play by Booth.

14:28 1st period: 1-1
Steve Kampfer floats a shot from the right point that gets tipped past Tomas Vokoun. Kampfer credited with the goal.

12:12 1st period: Panthers 1-0
On the PP, Dennis Wideman takes him time carrying the puck through the neutral zone and pulls Michal Frolik offside. Good times.

11:17 1st period: Panthers 1-0
Bryan Allen croaks Lane MacDermid with an open-ice hit. Nathan McIver comes to his defense and takes on Allen in a brief fight.

10:11 1st period: Panthers 1-0
Dmitry Kulikov limping after blocking a Zdeno Chara slapper.

8:47 1st period: Panthers 1-0
Nolan Schaefer stops David Booth’s first shot. But Booth keeps driving to the net and bangs in the rebound.

4:30 1st period: 0-0
PP2: Zach Hamill, Jared Knight, Milan Lucic, Mark Stuart, Steve Kampfer.

3:16 1st period: 0-0
PP1: David Krejci, Michael Ryder, Joe Colborne, Zdeno Chara, Andrew Ference.

2:16 1st period: 0-0
Lane MacDermid vs. Andrew Peters. MacDermid hangs in tough with the ex-Sabre tough guy, but Peters lands several rights and scores the takedown.

0:00 1st period: 0-0
Old friend Dennis Wideman is paired with Keaton Ellerby. Byron Bitz is riding with Marty Reasoner and Kenndal McArdle.
