The Boston Bruins punched their ticket to the playoffs for the third straight year with a 7-3 win over the Florida Panthers on Saturday night.

Boston's the second team in the Eastern Conference to clinch a postseason spot following the league-leading Tampa Bay Lightning.

Saturday's win gave the Bruins 101 points on the season and they appear set to capture the second seed in the Atlantic Division, which means Boston will likely meet the Toronto Maple Leafs in the first round for the second year in a row.
