Reilly Moore @reillymoore

Tarasenko has not had a terrific sequence however his display made the Lundell aim occur. Extra bounce in his recreation within the final two video games. Massive issue for the Cats having 3 efficient strains.

Peter Ginter @GintyFresh36

First line wasn’t on prime of it. It was the Lundell line with Bennett and Bob had his finest recreation of the sequence contemplating the stakes. (sure I do know he had a recreation 1 shutout) Crew win.

The Panthers outshot the Rangers 16-10 as the house crew struggled to regulate play within the third interval.

Jameson Olive @JamesonCoop

Panthers with one other sturdy third interval, which has change into a pattern on this sequence.

Tom Reed @treed1919

Only a textbook third interval from Panthers. Fully managed play. #NYR did not get wherever close to the online till Lafreniere scores in dying seconds. Exhausting to see this sequence getting previous Saturday evening. Panthers constructed for grind-it-out video games. The Rangers aren’t.

A late aim by Mika Zibanejad wasn’t sufficient to erase the deficit, and Florida goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky completed the outing having allowed two or fewer objectives for the fourth time within the five-game sequence.

Dissatisfied Cats Fan @sportspessimism

Bobrovsky your star tonight. He was nice.

San Diego Tremendous Padres @PadresTillDeath

It is like you need to play an ideal recreation to beat the @FlaPanthers
Bobrovsky is mainly a brick wall in aim.

The Panthers are actually one victory away from the Stanley Cup Last, and their dominant third interval left some followers satisfied they might get that remaining win.

Bob Beers Fanclub @bobbiebrewski

Rangers seem like defeated. Panthers are so much nearer than one win away from the Last.

Greg Boysen @GregBoysen

The Panthers have been the higher crew in all 5 video games. They’ve dominated 5v5, have had higher depth, and have made many of the Rangers’ prime stars ineffective. If it wasn’t for Shesterkin, this sequence would already be over.

This could mark the second consecutive season Florida has capped with a visit to the Last. In 2024, the crew misplaced their title bid in 5 video games to the Vegas Golden Knights.

David Alter @dalter

If the Panthers get one other win right here, they will be the primary Stanley Cup runner-up to get again to the Last the following 12 months because the 2009 Pittsburgh Penguins.

Chris Shepherd @ChrisShepherd

Panthers closed out the 2023 Japanese Convention Last at residence.

Panthers can shut out the 2024 Japanese Convention Last at residence Saturday. #TimeToHunt #NYR
