Richard Panik may be promoted from the fourth to the third line for the Maple Leafs' game against the Panthers Sunday evening.

Richard Panik notched an assist and a late goal to help send Thursday night's game to overtime.

However, his goal was a beauty as he got himself into position for the one-timer amidst tight traffic. Along with the points he had two hits and blocks.
