The Panthers heating up simply in time to barely squeeze into the playoffs and Bobrovsky heating up simply in time to come back again towards the Bruins and demolish the Leafs & Hurricanes is the right embodiment of "anything can happen in the Stanley Cup Playoffs."
What a run, man.

the Panthers are the prime instance of simply 'get to the playoffs and see what can occur' after being so near lacking.
they've taken benefit and completely owned the second by means of every problem (incl. being down 3-1to a traditionally good BOS staff) and Round.

The Panthers wasted no time lifting the Prince of Wales Trophy, clearly not frightened about any superstitions amid their miracle run.
