Unexpected Praise Amid Rivalry

Matthew Tkachuk of the Florida Panthers recently expressed an unexpected admiration for the Boston Bruins, acknowledging their role in shaping the Panthers' winning culture.

This statement comes as a surprise due to the intense rivalry between the two teams, particularly following their heated playoff series last year.

Tkachuk's Statement on Bruins' Impact

During a TNT interview, Tkachuk highlighted the influence of the Bruins on the Panthers, especially regarding their dedication and team cohesion. He commented:

"Honestly, a lot of it is stuff we took from the Bruins. The buy-in that we have, I don't think there's many teams that have that, other than maybe the Bruins."


Rivalry and Mutual Respect

The Panthers, perceived as underdogs, notably defeated the Bruins in a dramatic seven-game series last season, intensifying their rivalry.

Tkachuk's acknowledgment of the Bruins' positive impact on the Panthers, despite this competitive backdrop, reflects a level of respect that transcends their on-ice battles.
