Florida Panthers won 4:3 against Boston Bruins. The goal 17 seconds into overtime was the deciding factor. Florida coach Paul Maurice believes that his team finally deserved to win this way. "I think [we] were due for a game like this and were due a result like this all season.
They just haven't quit," -Paul Maurice said, as quoted by nhl.com "It was the hardest part of the season, and they kept getting kicked in the teeth and wouldn't quit. You want it for them so bad. We deserved that a bunch of nights this season and just didn't get it.'
' Alex Lyon made 38 saves and showed that he is a great goaltender. "That was a massive challenge, but we know what we have, and that is a phenomenal hockey team," -Lyon said. "The last game before [the All-Star] break is always tough, a back-to-back, but the guys kept going.
This is why you play the game right there."
Jeremy Swayman made 33 saves. He is not satisfied with the overall impression and believes that they could have done more. "We got a point, so that's important," Swayman said. "However, I want to be able to close out games in the last final seconds.

"I think that's a very important game for us, to show the confidence in this group," Bennett said. "That was a massive win against a very good team. The boys are definitely happy with that one. I would have had some nightmares if we didn't get the win tonight. It was nice we got the win.' '
