Hyman scored shorthanded and added an assist at even strength in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Panthers. Hyman's tally 3:32 into the third turned into the game-winner when Florida scored on a separate power play in the final minute. Four of the 24-year-old center's 10 goals this season have come shorthanded, putting him one back of Nashville's Victor Arvidsson for the league lead.
