2024 Stanley Cup Playoffs Second Round Bruins vs. Panthers Betting Picks (05-14-2024)

Last year, the Florida Panthers stunned the Boston Bruins in a first-round shocker. Boston was coming off the best regular season in NHL history. In comparison, Florida barely got into the playoffs as the last seed in the East. Boston has never recovered from that loss to the Stanley Cup betting odds. Now, it appears that Florida could have been the better team all along. Following a Game 1 loss, Florida stormed back to win the next three games against Boston. Boston must beat Florida three straight times to survive and advance.
