Panthers Vs. Devils, Game 7 Overtime Score: Teams Trade Chances In Wild First Overtime Period

It's hard to write the narrative of the first overtime period between the New Jersey Devils and Florida Panthers in Game 7. Like, really difficult. Both teams had chances, both teams made mistakes. Both teams had goaltenders make big saves, both teams had goaltenders scare the living hell out of their fans.

Florida finished the period with 12 shots on Martin Brodeur, who at times looks as old as he is and at times looks like the Hall of Famer he will soon be. New Jersey finished the period with nine shots on goal, adding to their game total of 35.

Numbers aren't going to explain that OT, though. If we want to explain it in one quick moving Internet image, this would probably be a good candidate:

AHH. OVERTIME PLAYOFF HOCKEY. Plays like that have happened at both ends on more than one occasion in overtime, and it'll probably continue to be hectic in the second overtime period. Fans of the Devils and Panthers probably want this over as soon as possible. Fans of the other 28 teams? Well, it's only midnight on the East Coast!
