Lucic and the kids carried the Bruins to a late win against the Florida Panthers, and the win all but eliminates the Panthers from the playoffs

The greatest third liner in the game Loui Eriksson started the game off right for the Bruins, scoring just over two minutes in to put the Bruins up 1 - 0. Video

Brandon Pirri, he of 21 goals and just two assists scores on the powerplay to tie the game just 9 seconds after a Marchand penalty less than a minute in the period. Video

Brad Boyes, who used to be on the only line that could score along with Marco Sturm and Patrice Bergeron, takes the Matt Bartkowski miscue and puts it by Rask, who really should have had it. Video

After the smart cross corner dump by Pastrnak, Lucic drops the puck to Spooner, who fires it on net and off of a net crashing David Pastrnak, as the Bruins tie the game. Video

After regrouping in the neutral zone, Milan Lucic draws all five Panthers to him and still scores on Luongo. Video

Here is where the Panthers defenders were when Lucic took the shot:

What do you think of the Spooner line?

In the 19 games since Krejci's injury Ryan Spooner has put up 7G - 10A - 17P, David Pastrnak has put up 5G - 12A - 17P , and Milan Lucic has put up 7GA - 6A - 13P. In that span, Spooner and Pastrnak are tied for first in points and Milan Lucic is fourth. Only Patrice Bergeron's 5 - 9 - 14 totals break them up.

And one more to appease the Panthers fans - Roberto Luongo robs Carl Söderberg
