Goalie Jeremy Swayman guaranteed a Game 5 win for the Bruins, and now the second round series against the Florida Panthers is heading back to Boston.

“The reality is that we’re going to go to Florida and we’re going to play the same game and we’re going to get it done,” Swayman said after Game 4. “I have no doubt in this group. And we have a lot of confidence and a lot of motivation to bring it back to Boston.”

Swayman made 28 saves after he had made the bold prediction that his team would come out on top. The Bruins staved off elimination by beating the Panthers 2-1.

After the game, Swayman was interviewed by Sportsnet and was asked what it meant to get the win on his father’s birthday.

“Happy Birthday, Dad. I love you so much,” Swayman said. “See you in Boston.”

That’s why Swayman knew he would win this one. There is no way he wanted to lose on his father’s birthday.

And we’re not only talking about a victory, but a stellar performance by Swayman, whose biggest stop of the game came in the dying moments when he stoned Florida’s Sam Reinhart from close range with about eight seconds left.

The Bruins can definitely build on Swayman’s confidence and the sweet motivations he has to get his club over.

We have a goaltender that’s extremely confident,” Bruins coach Jim Montgomery said. “His swagger gives confidence.”

Game 6 takes place in Boston on Friday. Game 7, if necessary, would be back in Florida on Sunday. Let’s ask Swayman about it?
