The season, one in which South Florida got excited about the Panthers again, will end in disappointing fashion.

“We just need a bounce-back. It’s do-or-die time,” said center Noel Acciari, who was part of Boston’s run to the 2019 Stanley Cup Finals.

“We’re going to leave it all on the ice and everyone here knows that. We’re not out of this. We have to come together, have a strong 60 minutes.”
