The rookie scored his second goal of the game at 3:47 of the second overtime to give the New Jersey Devils a 3-2 victory over the Florida Panthers early Friday.
He skated out of the right circle and into the slot, getting goalie Jose Theodoreto guess wrong. It sent New Jersey to Philadelphia for the Eastern Conference semifinal opener on Sunday, and the resurgent Panthers home for the summer.
"Got a pretty good bounce," Henrique said. "Found myself alone and tried to get it on net."
Just like that, the Devils were winners of a postseason series for the first time since 2007. And with the game ending in the early hours of April 27, it marked the 20th anniversary of Martin Brodeur's first postseason appearance in goal for New Jersey.
