Sport: The Florida Panthers led 3-1 in games in this year’s best-of-seven NHL playoffs. Thus it was “win or lose” for Emil Lilleberg and his Tampa Bay in the night’s match in Florida.

It ended with “disappearance”. Thus, the Florida Panthers advanced to the second round of the NHL playoffs.

After a goalless first period, Carter Verhaeghe sent the hosts into the lead after 90 seconds of play in the middle period. Aleksander Barkov doubled the lead 12.38 out in the same period, while Swedish Victor Hedman reduced it with a long shot just a minute later.

In the third period, all tension disappeared. With nine minutes left in the period, Barkov was again in front when he poked in 3-1. Before the final whistle, Evan Rodrigues, Verhaeghe and Niko Mikkola had ensured that the game ended 6-1.

Emil Lilleberg got 18 minutes and 7 seconds on the ice.
