NEW YORK -- Aleksander Barkov emptied out his bag of tricks trying to beat Henrik Lundqvist in a shootout. Cowboys Jerseys Sale .Barkov tapped the puck off his skate, made a big deke to his forehand and then tried to reach way back with one arm for a backhand shot.He got the winner, but only by a matter of luck -- and about an inch.Barkov and Vincent Trochek scored in the shootout, lifting the Florida Panthers over the New York Rangers 3-2 on Sunday night.Barkov took his unconventional approach at Lundqvist knowing a goal would win the game. Lundqvist got his stick on the puck while Barkov tried going to the backhand, but it skipped over the paddle and trickled toward the goal line.Lundqvist dove desperately as the puck approached the line, but his glove didnt swat it away until after it had fully entered the cage.The Panthers trailed twice but came back behind goals from Keith Yandle and Aaron Ekblad. The win gives Florida a 3-1 record on this four-game trip, and the Panthers also got their first victory at Madison Square Garden since April 18, 2013.Were a pretty happy team with the wins we are stringing together, Ekblad said. We look to play tight games and limit chances.James Reimer played a big role in the win, making 33 saves and stopping two more shots during the shootout. Reimer is 3-3-1 on the season.He had a great bounce-back game for him, Panthers coach Gerard Gallant said. Im real happy for him. The team worked hard ... but he had a huge effort tonight. That gave us the two points.It gets worse for New York. Mika Zibanejad left during overtime after falling hard into the end boards, and the team said he has a broken leg that will keep him out six to eight weeks.Lundqvist made 28 saves in his 700th start for the Rangers. He is only the fifth goalie in NHL history to play 700 games with one franchise.New Yorks Chris Kreider opened the scoring with 6:45 left in the first period on his fourth goal of the season. Derek Stepan skated through the neutral zone untouched and into the Panthers zone. He dished the puck off to Kreider, and he buried a shot from atop the faceoff circle for his 10th point in 13 games.Yandle tied it in the second period with a shot from the point while the Panthers were on the power play. It was his first trip back to New York since the Rangers traded him to Florida on June 20.The 30-year-old defenseman signed a seven-year, $44.45 million contract three days after the deal. Yandle spent one full season with the Rangers and part of another after they acquired him from the Coyotes on March 1, 2015.Its special for sure, Yandle said. Such a fun building to play in.The Rangers briefly retook the lead early in the third when Mats Zuccarello bounced a shot off Zibanejads body at 1:45. The goal was Zibanejads fifth of the season, but the Panthers eliminated the deficit when Ekblad scored his fifth with 7:54 left.Sunday was the first time the Rangers lost back-to-back games this season, but they remain two points ahead of the Pittsburgh Penguins for first place in the Eastern Conference. They play a home-and-home with Pittsburgh this week.They had a couple opportunities in tight where Hank (Lundqvist) had to make some big saves, Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. But thats the type of game right now that seems to be played throughout the league, tight. We were pretty even on both sides and lost in the shootout.Game notes Prior to the game, Rangers broadcaster Sam Rosen was honored for his induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame. Rosen was joined on the ice by members of his family and broadcast partner Joe Micheletti, and former partner John Davidson. ... The Rangers scratched D Adam Clendening and C Oscar Lindberg. ... Zibanejad appeared in his 300th game and is three assists away from 100 for his career. ... The Panthers scratched C Seth Griffith, C Jared McCain and D Dylan McIlrath, who was making his first visit to New York since he was traded by the Rangers on Nov. 8.UP NEXTRangers: Travel to Pittsburgh on Monday night to play the first game of a home-and-home.Panthers: Return to BB&T Center to host Philadelphia on Tuesday night. Cowboys Jerseys Store . LOUIS -- Attorneys for the St. Dorance Armstrong Jersey .com) - Christian Ponder will get another chance to prove himself for the Minnesota Vikings, with head coach Leslie Frazier announcing Wednesday that the struggling quarterback will start this weekends game against the Green Bay Packers. http://www.cheapdallascowboysjerseys.com/ . -- Linebacker Myles Jack ran for four touchdowns, defensive end Cassius Marsh caught a scoring pass, and No. SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS, Belgium -- Hes very fast, very young and very confident. He races on the limit, upsets other drivers and cares little when he does. Hes also great for Formula One.Max Verstappen may not be winning many friends among other drivers -- especially those from Ferrari -- but his aggressive, unapologetic, fearless driving is wonderfully entertaining for fans.The 18-year-old Dutchman is the youngest to win a race and to start from the front row of the grid, and hes also just what F1 needs in an era of fading former champions.Fernando Alonso, Kimi Raikkonen and Jenson Button are all in their mid-30s. Although three-time champion Lewis Hamilton is clearly very much on top of his game, and his Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg is highly competitive, both drivers are 31.Verstappens star factor drew more than 20,000 Dutch fans to the Belgian Grand Prix last weekend. Legions of orange-clad fans queued at the entry gates. Dutch flags were dotted around the Spa grandstands.He is refreshing for me. He is a young boy that I like a lot, Mercedes head of motorsport Toto Wolff said. He comes in here, no fear, no respect. He puts the elbow out and it reminds me of the great ones. It reminds me of Lewis and it reminds me of Ayrton Senna.High praise indeed, from Wolff, who might have added that Verstappen also has some of the brashness that typified seven-time F1 champion Michael Schumacher. Wolff has expressed regret that Mercedes was not able to snap Verstappen up before Toro Rosso did last year.You can clearly see that some guys around are starting to think twice how to overtake him, Wolff said, before adding a note of caution about Verstappens high-risk driving. I just fear that it might end up in the wall heavily one day. For me it is refreshing, but it is danngerous. Cowboys Jerseys Hoodies. In May, Verstappen drove brilliantly to win the Spanish GP on his Red Bull debut -- joining from feeder team Toro Rosso after just four races of this season -- and he followed that up with three more podium finishes.At the Belgian GP, his second place in qualifying set another record as the youngest driver ever to start on a front row of the grid.His talent is unquestionable, but his attitude is, and the feeling in F1 circles is that Verstappens tender age means he gets away with things that other drivers do not.The FIA has not penalized him. The only thing that happened was that he was given a hard time in the drivers briefing, Wolff said. Maybe next time he will have an even harder time in the driver briefing.Especially from Raikkonen and his Ferrari teammate Sebastian Vettel.Raikkonen criticized him after last months Hungarian GP and again after the Belgian GP.There was a high-profile tangle between Verstappen and both Ferraris on the first turn on Sunday. Later in the race, Verstappen infuriated Raikkonen with some aggressive blocking moves when the 36-year-old Finn tried to get past him at high speed.Maybe it needs an accident before things get more clear to everybody, Raikkonen said. Hopefully not because it can be bad for somebody, and nobody wants to see something like that happen.Verstappen, however, appears to care little for reputation, does not get pushed around, and his vitriolic words match the intensity of his driving.Blaming Ferrari, he was quoted as telling Dutch TV after Sundays race Im not going to let them past, Id rather force them off the track, reportedly adding in the end Im the victim. Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping ' ' '
