Will Panthers' Luongo get another chance vs. Bruins?
The Boston Bruins, who are a virtual lock to reach the playoffs for the third straight year, visit the Florida Panthers on Saturday night.
Florida, which fell just one point short of the playoffs last season, seems destined for a similar fate in 2018-19.
The Bruins have 99 points with eight games remaining, and are in second place in the Atlantic Division. The Panthers have 78 points and will likely fail to qualify even if they win all eight of their remaining games.
