THE BOSTON BRUINS SAID NOT TODAY!!!! They go into Sunrise and force a Game 6 thanks to goals from Morgan Geekie and Charlie McAvoy. Bright Lights delivers the game winner, withstanding a coaches challenge. We're headed back to Boston with a 3-2 series.

FINAL: Boston 2, Florida 1

Quick hits:

- Boston started on time, they put up 13 shots alone in the 1st which was an absolute miracle. They came out with desperation and it's gonna be a brand of hockey they're gonna need to take with them back to Boston.

- The Bruins PP is once again dogshit, I fear.

- The Bruins PK on the other hand, did a really nice job of smothering Florida's chances. 

- Monty with an all time masterclass of diving impersonations on the bench tonight.

- The Bruins took their 6th too many men penalty of the playoffs and all I can do now is laugh.

- Charlie McAvoy stepped up with his best game of the series. His game winner was ruled a good goal after a coach's challenge but it looked to me that Bob had time to re-set and it was OEL's stick that knocked Bob's stick out of his hands. I think I would've lost my mind and deleted social media and lived off grid for the next 5 months if that one got called back.

- Jeremy Swayman finished the night with 28 saves and none bigger than stoning Reinhart in the final seconds. Absolutely nails tonight. Once again the only reason why Boston is still in this series because of him. 

- Marchand traveled with the team to Florida, and has been skating but was not cleared to return. Gets a couple extra days here and perhaps we see him Friday night for Game 6. Buckle up, baby.

One game at a time.
