COLUMBUS http://www.islandersfanproshop.com/authentic-cal-clutterbuck-jersey , Ohio (AP) — New York gave up twice as many shots as it took, but Jimmy Vesey found the back of the net with the deciding goal in the shootout to get the Rangers another win.Vesey, who also had the game-tying goal at the end of the second period, beat Joonas Korpisalo on the glove side in the fifth round of the shootout to give the Rangers a 5-4 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night for New York’s fifth in the last six games (5-0-1).Vesey scored in the tiebreaker right after Columbus’ Oliver Bjorkstrand was stopped by Alexandar Georgiev, the backup who had started in place of Henrik Lundqvist in the second game of a back-to-back. The Rangers improved to 4-0 in shootouts this season.“I’m pretty confident when we go into shootouts because our guys are so skilled,” said Georgiev, who had 34 saves and picked up his third win in four starts this season.The game remained tied 4-4 through the third period despite an 11-2 shot advantage by Columbus, and a scoreless 5-minute overtime period. The Blue Jackets finished with a 38-19 shot advantage.Kevin Shattenkirk and Mika Zibanejad also scored in the shootout for New York. Pavel Buchnevich had a goal and an assist in regulation, and Zibanejad and Chris Kreider also scored.Artemi Panarin and Anthony Duclair tallied in the tiebreaker for Columbus.

Kreider tapped in his team-leading eighth goal of the season off a nice pass from Kevin Hayes later in the second to make it 3-1.Columbus tied the game again in the second with two goals in a 32-second span. Dubois got credit for redirecting a Jones one-timer , and Foligno tipped in the second from the door step on a rush.Wennberg got his first of the season Matt Hunwick Jersey Womens , a short-handed tally off the post to put the Blue Jackets ahead. But the Columbus lead didn’t last long. Vesey capped the scoring in the busy second period to knot the game again at the second intermission.“You can’t overstate how important that (last) goal was,” New York coach David Quinn said. “It really reset the game for us and gave us a little bit of a good feeling going into the locker room between the second and third.”The loss snapped a two-game winning streak for the Blue Jackets, who are 2-0-2 in last four.“Certainly, the odd-man rushes early on in the game hurt us, and the turnovers, but we played a good game,” Columbus coach John Tortorella said. “I don’t think they were in our end zone in the third period until the last shift.”Quinn agreed.“Give them credit,” he said. “They played real hard in the third and made a big push. They had some great chances. (Georgiev) stood tall, and we got two valuable road points.”NOTES: Columbus has four power-play goals in the last three games. … Atkinson returned after missing Friday night’s game to illness.

SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) The Florida Panthers are still alive for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. They’re going to need some help, though.Jared McCann scored with 5:37 left and Roberto Luongo got the win in his 1,000th career game, helping the Panthers stay in contention with a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Thursday night.The Panthers trail the Philadelphia Flyers by four points for the final Eastern Conference wild card and have two games remaining Jeff Skinner Jersey Womens , including a matchup Sunday night with Boston. Florida needs to win both games and have the Flyers lose to the New York Rangers in regulation Saturday.”It would be nice to control our own fate, but we don’t have that luxury,” coach Bob Boughner said. ”Who knows what’s going to happen, but we know we have a job to do. Let’s just hope that we are in a situation Saturday when the puck drops we’ve got a chance to make the playoffs.”The Panthers were also chasing the Devils and Blue Jackets, but both teams clinched playoff spots with victories Thursday.The 39-year-old Luongo became the third goalie to reach the 1,000-game mark, joining Hall of Famers Martin Brodeur (1,266) and Patrick Roy (1,029). Luongo is the 322nd player to reach the milestone overall. He stopped 26 shots Thursday.”It wasn’t easy. I was feeling a little bit sluggish today for some reason, but tell you what, the boys probably played their best game of the year,” Luongo said. ”That’s the best gift the boys could have given me.”Aleksander Barkov scored his 100th career goal, and Florida’s Frank Vatrano scored a goal against his former team.Barkov left the game with 6:51 left in the third period with an apparent upper-body injury after he was checked hard into the boards by Colby Cave.

I was able to step up.”There wasn’t an update on Barkov after the game.”I know the doctors are back there checking him out, so I don’t have anything as of now. It didn’t look great when he was going off the ice, to be honest,” Boughner said.Danton Heinen and Ryan Donato scored for the Bruins. Tuukka Rask stopped 32 shots.”Yeah, a tough start,” Rask said. ”They came to play, that’s not a surprise to anybody. They’re fighting for their lives and need every point they can get. You have to be ready for that and we weren’t.”The Bruins have lost three straight, their longest losing streak since a four-game skid from November 8-15.”You don’t want to go into the playoffs limping,” Rask said. ”You want to go in full stride and that’s something we have to fix the last two games.”Boston remains tied with Tampa Bay for the lead in the Atlantic Division, but Tampa owns the tiebreaker. Each team has two games left.”We’ve got one out of six points on this trip,” coach Bruce Cassidy said. ”That’s what happens in this league, I don’t care what teams you play. A bad formula to play from behind. Guys have to be ready to go when the puck drops. That’s something we have to look to correct.”McCann tipped in the winner off Mike Matheson’s shot from the left side.The Bruins tied it at 2 on Heinen’s goal 2:11 into the second period. After a defensive turnover, David Krejci passed across to Heinen Authentic Jordan Eberle Jersey , who beat Luongo on the stick side.Trailing 2-0, the Bruins closed to 2-1 on a power-play goal by Donato, who corralled a bouncing puck in front and swept it behind Luongo with 4:41 left in the first.The Panthers took a 1-0 lead on Barkov’s goal.
