Bobrovsky – the wall! He saved 19 shots in one period and is now two steps away from the NHL final.

Florida inflicted another loss on Carolina in overtime.

The Carolinas and Florida played nearly 140 minutes in game one of the Eastern Finals, and every strategic, tactical, episodic moment, any moment before their second meeting came down to recovery. To some extent, the series has evolved from a matchup between hockey players to a matchup between hockey players, massage therapists, and physical therapists. More than ever, a lot depended on which club had the most effective rehabilitation processes.

It is believed that after such grueling games, teams make serial mistakes and suffocate from a super-productive frenzy. The first fragments of the match quite fit this logic. Carolina already took the lead in one of the initial turns: a cross from Sebastian Aho and the subsequent substitution of Jaylen Chatfield paralyzed Sergei Bobrovsky: 1:0.

The packed arena in Raleigh got going and moved the favorites forward, but instead, the Hurricanes nearly missed: Eric Staal tested the strength of the bar and survived. After another half minute, the Panthers still scored, but the judges questioned the legitimacy of the goal, and after further review, they called it off.

It seems that the missed goal bothered Florida more than the conceded one. It instantly transformed from an attacking team to a meek defending one. By the 15th minute, the Panthers trailed by 2:18 on shots, and the 19th was an assist. Almost. Carolina scored, but also went into an offside position, and the officials again left the score unchanged. In all, Bobrovsky made 19 saves during the period and came out third in franchise history on this indicator.

In the second half, the “hurricanes” calmed down, or perhaps it affected the lack of strength. One way or another, “Florida” managed to adapt to the opponent, drag the strings of the game into their own hands, and soon seized the kind of advantage that is considered territorial. Under the conditions of a positional attack (!), Alexander Barkov met Fredrik Andersen one-on-one and deceived the goalkeeper with an insidious feint – 1:1.

As if emaciated, “Carolina” attacked noticeably less, but still extremely dangerous. “Keynes” came up with even more ingenious tricks than you are used to seeing. For example, Brent Burns didn’t shoot every time he put the puck on the hook, but he did aim for those passes.

However, Bobrovsky coped with any attack. Even early in the third period, when the Hurricanes switched to the high-volume tactic and at times the five tried to break through to a dime. In the third segment, only eight shots fell on the part of the Russian goalkeeper, but most of them were literally point blank.

At the start of overtime, the Carolinas again struck terror into the Florida half, and Bobrovsky brought out the puck with only the edge of the shield. The Panthers responded more rationally and skillfully: They dragged out a boring position, earned a suspension, and played a fantastic tie. At the end, as in the previous match, Matthew Tkachuk spoke. After the goal, he returned without the slightest delay to the locker room. This style of celebration is becoming a trademark for Americans.

Sergey Bobrovsky has 37 saves and 97.4% of shots saved, as well as the status of the first star of the game. Florida has great prospects. The Panthers took two games at home from the Carolinas, that is, at home – due to the imposition of ties – the Hurricanes are especially dangerous.
