Stanley Cup playoffs: Panthers, Flyers eliminated

25-04-2016

The Florida Panthers lost 2:1 against the New York Islanders in their second double overtime game in a row on Sunday. The Panthers led with less than a minute remaining in the third period but conceded a goal which took the game into OT. The loss means Florida, with Czech legend Jaromír Jágr, are out of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The NHL's website reported that the 44-year-old showed no signs of wanting to retire but to return to the game stronger than ever. In six post-season games, Jágr picked up two assists but did not score.

In other playoff action, a third excellent performance from goalie Michal Neuwirth in a row was not enough to stave off elimination by the Washington Capitals, who beat Philadelphia by a single goal: the final score was 1:0.
