The Panthers scored two power-play goals in Game 3 and are 3-for-9 in the series. The big factor on their power play in Game 3 was they had a shooting mentality. They had 10 shots on goal in 6:27 of power-play time, one fewer than they had in 48:49 at even strength. The Panthers generate momentum on the power play when they are looking to shoot, especially when they’re trying to set up forward Mike Hoffman for a one-timer, which worked for his goal 41 seconds into the third period that put Florida ahead 2-1. Sergei Bobrovsky made 20 saves on 22 shots to help the Panthers win Game 3. He stopped nine of 10 after they took a 3-1 lead 2:48 into the third. It was a good sign from a goalie who has been maligned for his play for most of the season. Bobrovsky signed a seven-year contract with the Panthers on July 1, 2019, to be the biggest factor in the biggest games, and there are none bigger in their season to date than Game 4. (
