NHL: No. 5 Carolina Panthers get the most from defense in a blowout loss to Boston Bruins

The Carolina Panthers were coming off a game against the Boston Bruins, and they were coming up against one of the most explosive offenses in the league.

But it wasn’t pretty, as the Panthers got the puck out of their zone, found the back of the net, and scored.

The Panthers were outshot 31-5 in the second period, and a 3-on-1 breakaway goal by Cam Ward put the Panthers ahead 3-1.

Boston was able to tie the game up with just under a minute remaining, but the Panthers scored three goals to take a 5-3 lead into the third period.

They would never take the lead, however, as defenseman Justin Faulk scored the game-winner to give the Panthers the victory.

The Bruins tied it up, but with less than a minute left in the period, Matt Bartkowski scored a power-play goal to put the Bruins up 3-2.

The game was tied at 5, and Boston would go on to win the game.
