Bruins, Panthers face off, both desperate for win

The NHL season may not yet be halfway over, but there will be two fairly desperate teams inside the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Fla., on Saturday night.

The Boston Bruins, still comfortably atop the Atlantic Division, have lost four straight games in regulation and five consecutive contests overall. You can bet that the Bruins want to end this losing streak right now.

Their opponent on Saturday night, the Florida Panthers, are not currently in a playoff position, and some of that has to do with their disappointing 3-3-0 homestand that still has three games remaining.
