A Historic Win with a Heartfelt Dedication

In a historic win for the Bruins in Philadelphia, Jeremy Swayman couldn't hold back his tears postgame. The young goaltender dedicated the game to a very special person he lost not long ago, playing with a heavy heart.

Swayman's Impressive Performance

Helping Boston secure a 5-3 win over the Flyers, Swayman stopped 34 of the 37 shots he faced on Sunday. This victory set the single-season win record with 63 on the season. At the final horn in Wells Fargo Arena, Swayman pointed up to the sky, and his teammates surrounded him in a big group hug.

Emotional Interview with Jackie Redmond

During a postgame interview with Jackie Redmond of The NHL Network, the 24-year-old goaltender became emotional. He revealed the reason for his gesture, saying:

''Tonight was a really special one. Two years ago today my all-time mentor, Red Gendron, passed away. I was actually in Philly when it happened. I think it was pretty scripted today how it worked out. It was pretty special for that.''

Remembering Red Gendron

Boston native Red Gendron was Swayman's head coach at the University of Maine from 2017 to 2020, where Swayman was the starting goaltender. Gendron also held positions with the New Jersey Devils, Albany River Rats (AHL), University of Maine, University of Massachusetts, and Yale University. He tragically passed away unexpectedly on April 9th, 2021, at the age of 63.

Swayman's Career Milestones

On Sunday, Swayman matched his career-high of 23 wins, improving his stat line to a 2.22 GAA and a .921 SV%.
