The Boston Bruins have a 1-0 lead over the Florida Panthers after winning Game 1 of the second-round series 5-1.

Goalie Jeremy Swayman paved the way for Boston on defense, keeping the net clear for most of the game outside of a second-period goal. On offense, the Bruins got help from Morgan Geekie, Mason Lohrei, Brandon Carlo, Justin Brazeau and Jake DeBrusk, each of whom had goals in the win.

The win comes after Boston’s overtime thriller against the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 7 of the first round. After the Bruins handled Game 1, fans credited the team for carrying their momentum from the win over the weekend.

Bruins riding the momentum from game 7 they need to keep this up the whole series

Bumping this.

Talked about Bruins using momentum of Game 7 to come out playing the right way against Florida

Having a day off and staying in playing rhythm is better than having a week off. Practice can only do so much. #nhlbruins @FullPressNHL https://t.co/lmopWInVvF

Bruins proving the Rest vs Momentum playoffs theory is real.

Florida has been sitting for almost a week. Bruins played 48 hours ago.

Bruins letting it rip in Florida tonight…a week off to rest for the Panthers is never a good thing…momentum matters #7News

Coach Knight (BRUINS 1-1) @CoachKnight99

Crazy how many people underestimated the Bruins. Did you guys forget this is the playoffs? It’s all about momentum. Boston has nothing to lose this year just like Florida had nothing to lose last year.

Stix @Stix617

Like I said the other day

Bruins Momentum from a game 7 win and revenge for last year against the Panthers are huge factors in this series and now it’s showing

Not to mention Having a week off is never beneficial for any team in any sport come playoff time

A win was always a possibility. 5-1???

Unbelievable Game 1 for the Bruins.

Michael MacEachern @MikeMacEac19

Swayman is the man! Big game 1 win for the Bruins!

Adam Bradford @Adam_Bradford14

What a gutsy performance by the Bruins tonight. On less than 48 hours of rest against a Florida team with almost a week off, they go into Sunrise and run the Panthers out of their own building.

It’s only Game 1, but an incredible start to the series.

The Bruins now have even more momentum on their side with a big Game 1. Boston is seeking revenge after losing to the Panthers in the second round a year ago, and that emotion could have been a factor in the dominant win.

Florida is looking to reach the Stanley Cup Finals for a second consecutive season, but it will need to come back strong in Game 2 to avoid a 2-0 deficit.

The second game of the series takes place Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. ET.
