The upcoming series between the Boston Bruins and the Florida Panthers has been hit with some game-changing injury news. According to Florida coach Paul Maurice, Sam Bennett will not be able to play in Game 1 against Boston. However, there is some hope as he is now considered day-to-day.

Florida coach Paul Maurice says Sam Bennett will not play Game 1 vs Boston, but is now considered day-to-day

This injury gives the Bruins a significant advantage, as Bennett is not only one of Florida's top players but also known for his physical presence on the ice. His absence could create a gap in Florida's lineup that the Bruins may exploit.

However, it's not all bad news for the Panthers. They do have an advantage as they've had more time off since April 29th, when they defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Some might see this as a disadvantage, as they've been sitting around while the Bruins have been playing and staying sharp. But others believe the rest could help the Panthers come out strong in Game 1.
