Oliver Ekman Larsson setting the tone when the Florida Panthers won last night

It took just fifteen seconds of overtime for Florida to end the game against Washington in tonight’s NHL ice hockey.

Florida’s Swedish slopes Oliver Ekman-Larsson and Gustaf Forsling did more than just put the skates on display and were the two defensemen who played the most on the team as Florida won 4–3.

Ekman-Larsson showed no signs of suffering from the head tackle he received from Boston’s Charlie McAvoy on October 30, a tackle that was deemed serious enough to suspend McAvoy for four games and which led to the Swede having to suspend the match.

Ekman-Larsson equalized at 1-1 in the first period, played by, among others, the Finn Anton Lundell. When Florida equalized at 3–3 in the third period, it was Ekman-Larsson and Gustaf Forsling who provided the assists.
