Panthers’ Verhaeghe, Reinhart snap slumps in Game 7

Watch as the Panthers catch a break after a near-miss by the Oilers, then go on a counter rush that's capped off by a Sam Reinhart go-ahead goal.

Two of the Florida Panthers‘ most important goal scorers showed up in Game 7.

Carter Verhaeghe and Sam Reinhart both scored goals in the winner-take-all final game, snapping slumps in the process.

Verhaeghe tipped home a goal early in the first period to open the scoring. Then, after the Oilers had tied the game, Reinhart restored Florida’s lead with a seeing-eye shot off a rush late in the second.

Verhaeghe had 34 goals for the Panthers this season but had only scored once in the Final, all the way back in Game 1. Reinhart had a career-high 57 goals in the regular season but also only had one goal in the Final, in Game 3.
