Vladimir Tarasenko and Carter Verhaeghe each scored during the same Bruins double-minor, while Sergei Bobrovsky blocked 14 shots to lead the Florida Panthers to a 6-2 victory over Boston on Friday night, giving them a 2-1 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinal series.

Evan Rodrigues netted two goals, with Brandon Montour also finding the net for the Panthers, who secured consecutive wins after losing the series opener at home.

Following their 6-1 victory on Wednesday, Florida notched 10 unanswered goals until Jakub Lauko narrowed the margin to 4-1 early in the third period, with Jake DeBrusk adding another goal with 11:31 remaining to make it a two-goal game.

However, Boston, playing the last 20 minutes without their captain and second-leading scorer Brad Marchand, failed to close the gap further before Sam Reinhart sealed the win with an empty-net goal with 1:24 left.

Rodrigues scored once more, marking Florida’s fourth power-play goal of the game, in the final minute.

Now, the Bruins must secure a win at home on Sunday night to avoid trailing 3-1 heading back to Florida for Game 5.
