The Florida Panthers and Pittsburgh Penguins went to a seven-round shootout, which was ended by a nifty move from Aleksander Barkov.
Another day, another seven round shootout in the NHL.
But, seriously, the Florida Panthers took advantage of a short-handed Pittsburgh Penguins team – the mumps struck again sending Steve Downie, Brandon Sutter and Thomas Greiss back to Pittsburgh for testing – for the win on Monday night and it was thanks to some trickery from forward Aleksander Barkov.
Not sure if Marc-Andre Fleury was sleeping on this one, but this was a nifty-looking goal from the 19-year-old Finn, who was taken second overall in 2013.
The Panthers are one of the NHL’s biggest surprises so far this season, as they continue to play well owning a 6-2-2 record in their last ten games.
