“Cats” from Florida on the threshold of the Stanley Cup finals



Carolina did not beat Bobrovsky out of 32 shots on goal

Florida is just one more win away from making it to the NHL Grand Finals, as the Panthers won the third game of the series against the otherwise favored Carolina. Sergej Bobrovski locked his door for the first time in the playoffs, and Sam Reinhart scored the only goal.

A 32-17 shots on goal ratio didn’t help Carolina, who lost 1-0 in the first game of the Eastern Conference Finals in Sunrise. Florida’s numerical advantage midway through the game was the deciding factor. In the 31st minute, he scored from the turn with a wrist shot Sam Reinhart, where he also had a bit of luck to checkmate Frederik Andersen. Defender Jacob Slavin changed the direction with his stick just so much that the puck flew defenselessly past the Dane in the Hurricanes’ goal.

He shone in the Panthers’ goal with 32 saves Sergei Bobrovsky, who remained undefeated in the playoffs for the first time in his career. In the regular season, the Russian goaltender accumulated a career-high 38 “of shutouts“. The success, after which the Panthers need only one more victory, was only marred by an injury to the Finnish player center and team captain Sasha Barkov.

Eighth placed the East club then eliminated Boston 4:3, which had previously set a historical record for the number of wins and points in the NHL.
