As the Boston Bruins prepare for a must-win Game 6 against their bitter rivals, the Florida Panthers, star defenseman Charlie McAvoy is exuding confidence and excitement.

Following a spirited practice session, McAvoy expressed his eagerness for the challenge ahead, stating, "Can't wait. Great day today, great practice today. Another chance tomorrow to continue our season." These words serve as a rallying cry for the Bruins, who will need their best players to step up and deliver in the face of adversity.

His ability to log heavy minutes, shut down opposing offenses, and contribute at both ends of the ice makes him an invaluable asset for Boston, and his teammates will look to him to set the tone and lead by example.
