Alex Ovechkin can breathe easy: Since no individual player scored 16-or-more goals in #NHLBruins -#FlaPanthers game Sunday, he has secured his NHL-record 7th career goal-scoring title (49G). Boston's Brad Marchand (entered play w 34G) was the closest, um, pursuer, in season finale
Stick tap to the #FLAPanthers . Hours after learning they were eliminated from playoff contention Saturday, they scored 3x in 1st period en route to 4-3 win vs. #Sabres . Then they went to Boston and beat the #NHLBruins 4-2 at TD Garden in a game Boston clearly wanted to clinch 1st
However this ends, credit to the Panthers. They had to travel to Boston after playing last night to play a game after everyone else's season is over and the day after they were mathematically eliminated.
Would've been easy for them to go through the motions and they're not.
