SUNRISE http://www.flyersshoponline.com/authentic-nolan-patrick-jersey , Fla. (AP) Florida Panthers coach Bob Boughner didn’t even see the winning goal. Instead, he simply listened for the roar of the crowd.”I haven’t even seen it yet,” Boughner said after the game. ”Superstition. I looked away, I heard the noise. I didn’t see any of our (shootout) goals.”Vincent Trocheck scored the deciding goal in the shootout to lift the Panthers to a 4-3 victory over the New York Rangers on Saturday night for their franchise-record eighth straight home win.”Yeah, it’s pretty fun knowing that if you score, it’s over, game-winner,” Trocheck said. ”Everybody in here kind of wants the puck on their stick in that situation.”Aleksander Barkov also scored in the tiebreaker for the Panthers, who have points in nine straight games. The Panthers are two points behind Columbus and three behind New Jersey for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, with three games in hand on each.Frank Vatrano scored a goal in his Panthers debut, Jonathan Huberdeau had a goal and an assist, and Jamie McGinn also scored. Trocheck had two assists. Roberto Luongo made 34 saves.”We’ve been winning different ways throughout this stretch here. That’s what good teams do,” Luongo said.Kevin Hayes, Mika Zibanejad and Mats Zuccarello scored in regulation for the Rangers, who lost their third straight. Ryan Spooner had a pair of assists. Zuccarello also scored to open the shootout. Henrik Lundqvist stopped 32 shots in his 800th career game, becoming the 15th goalie in NHL history to reach the milestone.The Rangers scored twice in the third period.Trailing 3-2 http://www.flyersshoponline.com/authentic-travis-konecny-jersey , the Rangers tied the score 3-3 as Hayes took a wrist shot from above the right circle that went over Luongo and into the net at 7:25 of the third.Zibanejad tied the score 2-all when he took a drop pass from Jesper Fast and put the puck into the upper corner of the net 17 seconds into the third.”Our guys played hard, made good plays with the puck, came back three times in this game,” coach Alain Vigneault said. ”Unfortunately, we weren’t able to get it done in the shootout.”The Panthers answered less than a minute later when McGinn slid a rebound between Lundqvist’s pads at 1:02 to reclaim the lead at 3-2.”We kept battling,” Lundqvist said. ”We kept coming back in this game and gave ourselves the chance to almost win it. If I can mix in a save in the shootout, maybe we get a win.”The Panthers took a 1-0 lead when Huberdeau found a loose puck in the front of the crease and poked it behind Lundqvist on a power play with 14.8 seconds left in the first.Vatrano, traded to Florida from Boston on Feb. 22 for a third-round pick, redirected a pass from Vincent Trocheck into the net from in front at 8:13 of the second to make it 2-0. Vatrano had been sidelined with a high-ankle sprain since the trade,”It’s awesome. It’s even better that it helped out getting a win,” Vatrano said.The Rangers closed to 2-1 on the goal by Zuccarello. Neal Pionk shot from the point and Zuccarello deflected it into the net with 6:49 left in the second.NOTES: Gold Medalist Emily Pfalzer of Team USA hockey participated in the ceremonial puck drop. Panthers D Mike Matheson, her boyfriend, greeted her at center-ice. … Panthers D Keith Yandle has 20 points in 18 games. … Spooner has two goals and 10 assists in seven games for the Rangers since he was acquired in a trade with Boston on Feb. 25. … Rangers F Chris Kreider returned after missing the final two periods of Thursday night’s 5-3 loss at Tampa Bay after taking a hit to the head near the end of the first period. … Lundqvist is the first goalie born outside North America to reach the 800-game mark. He joined Martin Brodeur (1,266 with New Jersey) and Phil Esposito (873 with Chicago) as the only goalies to hit the milestone with one team.UP NEXTRangers: Host Carolina on Monday night.Panthers: Host Ottawa on Tuesday night. SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) Desperation turns to jubilation in the NHL playoffs when a trailing team manages to score the tying goal late in regulation to force overtime.That sudden change of emotions would figure to fuel a team’s momentum in overtime. But that’s not always the case, as evidenced the past three nights when a team that squandered a late lead managed to bounce back in overtime and earn a win.Vegas and San Jose each experienced both sides of that roller coaster the past two games Barrett Hayton Jersey Womens , with the Golden Knights responding with William Karlsson’s goal in overtime in Game 3 at the Shark Tank.That came two nights after San Jose saw Nate Schmidt tie Game 2 with 6:32 left only to end up on the winning side on Logan Couture’s power-play goal in the second overtime.”You just move on,” Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said. ”It’s playoff hockey. We were disappointed when they scored with roughly two minutes left in the hockey game. … We regrouped in the overtime session between periods and said let’s go out there and get this game.”This postseason has featured four games in all that went to overtime after one team tied it with less than five minutes to play. The team that blew the lead has come out on top in three of those games, with Nashville doing it to Winnipeg in Game 2 of their second-round series on Sunday night and Columbus doing it to Washington in Game 2 of their first-round series.The Blue Jackets are the only team this postseason to force overtime with a goal in the final five minutes and win, having done it in Game 1 against the Capitals.For all the talk of late-game momentum, teams scoring those late goals are just 7-8 in overtime the past two postseasons.”We weren’t too happy with this as a team,” said Vegas goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, who made Karlsson’s winner possible by robbing Couture earlier in the OT. ”But everyone was relaxed between periods. We talked and we knew what we had to do.”Momentum can be very fleeting in the playoffs whether in a game or a series. In the first five days of the second round, no team has won consecutive games in a series.The Sharks will try to put the Game 3 loss in the past and continue that pattern to tie their series at two games apiece when they take the ice for Game 4 on Wednesday night (10 p.m. EDT, NBCSN).”It’s easy,” Couture said. ”The schedule-makers did a good job of playing games every other day so it’s easy to forget about a game when you’ve got another one (coming). … We’re down 2-1. It doesn’t matter how you got there or what the score was in any of the games, we’re down 2-1 and we’ve got a big game.”The Bruins will look to do the same when their second-round series against Tampa Bay shifts to Boston for Game 3 on Wednesday night (7:30 p.m. EDT, NBCSN).Boston won the opener handily 6-2 before falling in Game 2 in Tampa Bay 4-2 on Monday night.”I think that feel good from winning, you take that emotion into the next game,” Lightning forward Chris Kunitz said. ”But each game has its own identity, you can’t rest on what you did last game and just hope they walk away.”STAY OUT OF THE BOXThe Sharks were one of the best teams in the regular season at avoiding penalties, going short-handed just 2.7 times per game for the fourth-lowest mark in the league. That discipline has been missing this round as Vegas has gotten 18 power plays in three games. The Golden Knights converted five of them Michael Grabner Jersey Womens , including two during a three-goal barrage in a span of less than five minutes of the second period in Game 2.San Jose also went short-handed twice in overtime for having too many men on the ice and for delay of game.”Obviously their two power play goals swing the momentum in the second period, but I didn’t think our discipline or penalties were a problem, just one of those nights,” coach Peter DeBoer said.LIGHT THE LAMPBrayden Point is just the latest player with a big-scoring night these playoffs. He had one goal and three assists for Tampa Bay in the Game 2 win over Boston, marking the 11th time a player has posted four points in a game in this postseason. This is just the second time in the last 20 years that there have been at least 11 four-point performances in the first 52 games of the playoffs.”He’s a special player, and when big games come about, special players take over and he did that,” teammate Tyler Johnson said. ”I can’t say enough about the guy.”ALL TIED UPEven though Vegas now has taken a 2-1 series lead over San Jose, all four second-round series stood tied after two games. This is just the fourth time since 1975 that teams split the first two games in all four series in the second round. It also happened in 1991, 1986 and 1984.—AP Sports Writer Fred Goodall in Tampa, Florida, contributed to this report—
