Following the Bruins' historic victory in Philadelphia, an emotional Jeremy Swayman dedicated the game to a dearly departed loved one during the post-match interview.

A Heavy Heart on the Ice

In Sunday's match against the Flyers, Swayman made 34 saves out of 37 shots, contributing to Boston's 5-3 win and setting a new single-season record of 63 victories. As the final horn echoed through the Wells Fargo Arena, Swayman pointed skyward, after which his teammates embraced him in a group hug. In a postgame interview with Jackie Redmond from The NHL Network, the 24-year-old goaltender became visibly emotional while explaining the gesture.
''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.''

Red Gendron, a Boston native, coached Swayman during his time as the starting goaltender for the University of Maine from 2017 to 2020. Gendron also held positions with the New Jersey Devils, Albany River Rats (AHL), University of Massachusetts, and Yale University. He passed away unexpectedly on April 9th, 2021, at the age of 63.
Swayman equaled his career-high of 23 wins on Sunday, boasting a 2.22 GAA and a .921 SV%.
