After Florida took a one-goal lead into the final period, Tomas Fleischmann and Boyes completing the scoring. Boyes has four goals for the year.

Jacob Markstrom was the beneficiary of the strong goal support and stopped 36 shots to get the win. He had allowed six goals on 24 shots Thursday against Tampa Bay.
