Bruins vs. Hurricanes live stream: Watch pivotal Game 5 of first-round series originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The Boston Bruins cannot advance past the first round of the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs if they fail to win at least one game against the Carolina Hurricanes at PNC Arena.

Boston will get a third chance to win that road matchup Thursday night in Game 5.

The B's lost the first two games of the series in Carolina by a combined score of 10-3. They returned to Boston and won both games at TD Garden over the weekend by a combined score of 9-4. The B's got great goaltending from rookie Jeremy Swayman, they won the special teams battle, and they saw their top players, most notably Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak, finally make a positive contribution to the series.

Brad Marchand's resurgence gives Bruins new life with dominant Game 4 win

The challenge for the Bruins entering Game 5 is winning a second consecutive games without their two-best defenseman, Charlie McAvoy and Hampus Lindholm. The rest of the blue line stepped up in McAvoy's and Lindholm's absence in Game 4, but doing so on the road with the Hurricanes having the last line change is a tougher task.
