Panthers Vs. Devils, Game 7 Final Score: Adam Henrique's OT Goal Sends New Jersey To Round 2

Adam Henrique opened the scoring. Adam Henrique closed the scoring and he closed the door on the Florida Panthers' season. At the 3:47 mark of the second overtime period, the rookie picked up a favorable bounce near the hash mark and ripped a shot through Jose Theodore's five-hole to give the New Jersey Devils the 3-2 Game 7 victory.

It was an unfortunate end for the Panthers, who certainly left nothing in the tank after tying the game with less than four minutes left in regulation. They pressed hard in the 23 minutes of overtime hockey, but playoff OT always comes down to a single bounce or a single mistake, and the Devils were the ones who picked up the fortuitous bounce.

New Jersey will travel to Philadelphia to take on the archrival Flyers in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
