As the Panthers prepare to face-off against the Bruins in game one, All-Star Matthew Tkachuk revealed the key to overcoming this formidable opponent in the first round.

Admiration or Psychological Tactics?

Though known for his on-ice antics and ability to ruffle the feathers of rivals, Tkachuk expressed admiration for the team he's about to face. The forward spoke to the media about the daunting task of taking on the Bruins, who just clinched the Presidents' Trophy.
''It's going to take pretty much a perfect effort to win one game in the series against everything they have over there, with the season they've had.''

‘'I think everybody knows they've had the best season in NHL history, so it's a great challenge for our team.''

Tkachuk, however, doesn't view the Panthers as underdogs. Instead, he sees this as an opportunity for the team to achieve something extraordinary—even if it means perfection just to secure one victory.
'‘It's probably more spoiler at this point.''

‘'I don't even know if 'underdog' is a right phrase for us right now, going against that talent and everything they've done this year over there. We have our hands full. We got to play very, very, very well -- if not perfect -- to win a game [in this series].''

The 25-year-old Tkachuk has built on his career highs last season with the Calgary Flames, amassing an impressive 109 points in 79 games for Florida.
Fans should keep an eye on the individual rivalry between Tkachuk and Brad Marchand. These two star forwards may be pitted against each other throughout the series, and are both known for their love of on-ice banter and agitating gameplay.
