NHL announces start time, TV info for Florida Panthers-Boston Bruins Game 6

The Florida Panthers and Boston Bruins have a puck drop time and television information for Game 6 of their Stanley Cup playoffs second-round series.

The NHL announced that game time on Friday at Boston’s TD Garden will be at 7 p.m. The game will be televised on TNT and truTV in addition to being streamed on MAX. It will be the first of two playoff games played that night, with Game 6 of the Dallas Stars-Colorado Avalanche series starting at 10 p.m.

The Panthers lead the best-of-7 series against the Bruins 3-2 and need just one more win to advance to the Eastern Conference final. Should Boston win on Friday, the winner-take-all Game 7 will take place Sunday at Sunrise’s Amerant Bank Arena.

This postseason, Boston won the first game of the series 5-1 before Florida won Games 2-4 by respective scores of 6-1, 6-2 and 3-2. The Bruins kept their season alive with a 2-1 win in Game 5 on Tuesday.

The winner of the Panthers-Bruins series will face the winner of the New York Rangers-Carolina Hurricanes series. The Rangers have a 3-2 lead in the series, with Game 6 taking place on Thursday.
