BOSTON (AP) — Patrice Bergeron scored a pair of third-period goals after Boston nearly blew a 4-0 lead Monday night and the Bruins beat the Florida Panthers 7-3 for their 17th home win in 19 tries.

Bergeron had a pair of assists and Linus Ullmark stopped 36 shots to earn his 10th straight victory. The Bruins opened a 4-0 run early in the second period before the Panthers scored three times in a five-minute span to make it a one-goal game.

But David Krejci hit a rebound off Hampus Lindholm’s shot that bounced off both posts and out to give Boston a 5-3 lead midway through the second. It stayed that way until Bergeron took a long pass from Connor Clifton and beat Spencer Knight with 11 minutes to play.

The Bruins captain added another goal about three minutes later with a rebound off a turnover.

Knight stopped 19 shots for the Panthers, who have lost four of their last six games.


The Bruins made it 4-0 in the opening minutes of the second, just 21 seconds into the game after a penalty shot over the glass. Brad Marchand fed Bergeron and his shot from Knight bounced right to David Pastrnak.
