The first two games of the series between the Leafs and the Panthers were played at home, where the Leafs had the advantage. However, they were unable to secure a win, and now they face a crucial game on the road in Florida. The Panthers had a rough start to the season following their disappointing exit from last year’s playoffs, but they picked up momentum in the second half of the season. They secured the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference with a record of 42-32-8, beating out the Penguins and the Sabres by one point. They ended the regular season strongly, winning six out of their last eight games, despite losing their final two.

The Panthers have been a dominant force in terms of scoring this season, ranking sixth in the NHL with an average of 3.51 goals per game, while also having the highest number of shots per game in the league. They are also the league leaders in expected goals and high-danger shots. Their power play has been effective, converting 22.8% of their opportunities, placing them tenth in the league. The top scorers for Florida this season are Matthew Tkachuk, who joined the team from Calgary in the off-season and has 109 points and 69 assists, and Carter Verhaeghe, who has 42 goals.

Despite their strong offensive performance, the Panthers have struggled on defense, allowing an average of 3.68 goals per game, which is the twelfth-highest in the NHL, with 31.7 shots against per game. They have also given up many quality chances, ranking eighth in expected goals against and third in high-danger shots against. Their penalty kill has been less than impressive, with a success rate of only 75.9%, placing them tenth-worst in the league. Alex Lyon, who began the season as their third goalie, took over as starter for the series against the Bruins after Sergei Bobrovsky struggled this season. Spencer Knight was also away from the team for most of the season due to personal issues. Lyon performed well towards the end of the season, winning six out of his last eight starts, helping Florida secure a playoff spot. Bobrovsky took over in the series against the Bruins and played remarkably in the final games to help the Panthers advance to the second round.

In the first round of the playoffs, the Panthers achieved a remarkable upset by defeating the Boston Bruins in seven games. The Bruins set new records for points and wins in a regular season and dominated the league. They had a 3-1 series lead and numerous opportunities to seal the deal, but the Panthers fought back, with some luck on their side, and won in overtime of Game 7. After losing the first two games in Boston, where the Bruins underperformed at home, the Bs won the next two games in Florida with ease, putting Florida in a difficult position. In Game 5 in Boston, the Bruins were superior, outshooting Florida 47-25 and outplaying them with an expected goal margin of 4.52-3.
