Jeremy Swayman, the goaltender for the Boston Bruins, delivered another remarkable performance last night in Game 1 of the playoffs, contributing significantly to the team's success this season.

In a dominant showing against the Panthers, Swayman made an impressive 38 saves, helping the Bruins secure a 5-1 victory.

This postseason, the team has managed to keep opponents to three goals or fewer in each of their first eight games.

This level of performance is not new to the franchise but remains a noteworthy achievement; similar feats were accomplished with 12-game runs starting the playoffs in 1999 and 1939.


Following last night's game, the NHL released a statement highlighting Swayman's achievement.

He is now tied for fourth place for the most consecutive playoff starts allowing two goals or fewer in each game. This places him in elite historical company within the NHL.


Moreover, if Swayman continues his exceptional play and has two more similar games, he will tie the record set by Clint Benedict in 1928, who managed to keep his goal allowance to two or fewer across nine consecutive playoff games, nearly a century ago.
