Panthers oust Bruins in Game 7 to end Boston’s historic NHL season

The Florida Panthers celebrate after defeating the Boston Bruins in overtime of Game 7.

The Boston Bruins‘ record-setting 2022-23 campaign came to a shocking end Sunday night with a 4-3 overtime loss to the Florida Panthers in Game 7 of their first-round Stanley Cup playoff series.

Boston rewrote the NHL record book this year in posting new all-time marks for wins (65) and points (135). But under the bright lights of the playoffs, the Bruins crumbled, blowing a 3-1 series lead to a Panthers team that finished 43 points behind them in the standings. 

The Panthers pulled goalie Sergei Bobrovsky and tied the game 3-3 with one minute to go in regulation before Carter Verhaeghe provided the final dagger in overtime.
