bruins v panthers Bruins fall to Panthers in preseason play, 3 2

The Boston Bruins got a tough reminder of how good Dennis Wideman can be.  The former Bruin scored what proved to be the game winner as the Florida Panthers beat the Bruins 3 – 2 in preseason action in Rochester, New York.

Florida’s David Booth did most of the damage for Florida getting two goals in the first period.  Booth connected on a rebound at the 8:47 mark, slipping it past the left post and Bruins’ goalie Nolan Schaefer.  The Bruins tied it at 14:28 on a blue line shot from defenseman, Steve Kampfer.  However, Booth scored again on a give and go for a 2-1 lead after one period.  Wideman scored on a power play goal 1:15 into the 2nd period to give Florida a 3 – 1 lead.  Jeff LoVecchio scored for the Bruins in the third but they could not get the equalizer.  Schaefer had 24 saves in a losing effort while the Bruins got 27 shots on goal.

Bruins are now 1-1 in the preseason while Florida goes to 2-0.  Two teams meet again at The Garden on Saturday.
