FLORIDA PANTHERS (23-31-7) AT BOSTON BRUINS (38-17-5), 7 P.M.
(SportsNetwork.com) - The Boston Bruins aim to build off their first victory since the Olympic break as they play host to the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night.
The Bruins dropped a pair of contests coming out of the hiatus, one in overtime, before doubling up the New York Rangers 6-3 on Sunday. Boston's road win gave it 81 points on the season, six more than the second-place Montreal Canadiens in the Atlantic Division.
Gregory Campbell scored twice to lead a Bruins offense that saw six skaters record at least two points. Dougie Hamilton added a goal and two assists, while Jarome Iginla and Milan Lucic finished with a goal and a helper each.
"We just needed to get over that hump," Bruins head coach Claude Julien said. "Once we scored that first goal, it just seemed like everybody relaxed and we got better."
Tuukka Rask posted 39 saves for the Bruins and has been dominant in his career versus the Panthers. He is 10-1-0 with a 1.08 goals against average, .964 save percentage and three shutouts in 11 meetings, including all three victories this season.
