PANTHERS’ INSURANCE GOAL WAIVED OFF
Oliver Ekman-Larsson appeared to have doubled Florida’s lead 8:45 into the third period, but the goal was waived off due to goaltender interference. Although the interference was caused by New York’s Ryan Lindgren pushing Florida’s Ryan Lomberg into Igor Shesterkin, officials ruled that the contact was moot because Lomberg was already in the blue paint without a loose puck before the contact, leading to the overturning of the goal.
