Panthers 4OT hero reveals college-type diet that got team through 6th-longest game in NHL history

May 19, 2023

A full 60 minutes of hockey was not enough for the Florida Panthers and Carolina Hurricanes Thursday night.

Neither was one overtime — or two or three. In the playoffs, overtimes are full 20-minute periods.

Four overtimes almost weren't enough until Matthew Tkachuk found the back of the net with 12,7 seconds left in the frame, giving the Panthers a 3-2 Game 1 win just before 2 a.m. on the East Coast.

It was the sixth-longest game in NHL history, the teams playing more than a doubleheader in one contest.
