SUNRISE Pat Tillman Jersey Limited , Fla. (AP) and a strong finish, and they needed both against one of the hottest teams in the NHL.Matt Duchene scored twice, including the go-ahead goal with three minutes left, to lift the Senators over the Florida Panthers 5-3 on Monday night.Magnus Paajarvi also had two goals for Ottawa, and Jean-Gabriel Pageau added one late. Craig Anderson made 35 saves, and Erik Karlsson and Mike Hoffman each added two assists.Florida had won eight straight home games.“I think getting the big W tonight was huge for us and for our confidence,” Anderson said.Jonathan Huberdeau, Mike Matheson and Evgenii Dadonov scored for the Panthers. Vincent Trocheck had two assists, but Roberto Luongo allowed five goals on 25 shots.“In this homestand, we’ve been rolling,” coach Bob Boughner said. “The team has been playing well and finding ways to win. Tonight, we didn’t.”The Panthers are three points behind New Jersey for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.Duchene broke a 3-all tie when his shot from the slot went over Luongo and high into the net.“It’s tough to sustain the pressure they had http://www.arizonacardinalsteamonline.com/pat-tillman-jersey ,” Duchene said. “We kind of just held the fort and (Anderson) had some big saves and we ended up getting those two (goals) late.”Pageau poked in a rebound with 1:45 remaining to stretch the lead to 5-3.“For some reason, I don’t know if we had a regular jump that we’ve had throughout this homestand. You factor in that we just didn’t get the start that we wanted,” Panthers captain Derek MacKenzie said. “We let a team hang around, and sooner or later something like that is going to happen.”Paajarvi put the Senators ahead 3-2 when he swept in a rebound 42 seconds into the third period.The Panthers tied it at 3 on Huberdeau’s goal. Trocheck passed toward the net and the puck went off Huberdeau’s skate and in at 4:23.Aleksander Barkov had a short-handed breakaway with 4:10 left in the third but Anderson made the save on a point-blank shot.“It was a big save for them,” Boughner said. “They needed a big save, they got it. We just couldn’t crack him at the end.”The Panthers scored twice in the second period to tie it, outshooting the Senators 17-2.“I’d love to comment on the second period, but I wouldn’t have appropriate words for television,” Ottawa coach Guy Boucher said. “We reloaded in the third period.”Dadonov’s shot from the right circle beat Anderson at 12:36. Dadonov has 23 points (12 goals, 11 assists) in the Panthers’ 20 games since the All-Star break.Florida tied it at 2 when Matheson’s shot from the left circle got past Anderson with 2:32 left.The Senators took a 1-0 just 57 seconds into the game when Duchene took a cross-ice pass from Hoffman and fired the puck past Luongo into the corner of the net.Paajarvi made it 2-0 on his first goal. Fredrik Claesson took a shot from the point and Paajarvi tipped it in from in front with 4:44 left in the first.NOTES: Anderson hosted the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School hockey team at the game.

If the words spoken Sunday afternoon by coach Barry Trotz were any indication, the Islanders will be shuffling the deck as well.Backup goalie Alexander Georgiev will make a rare start for the Rangers on Wednesday night when they host the Islanders in a battle of longtime rivals at Madison Square Garden.Both teams are coming off a game against the visiting Dallas Stars. The Rangers continued their recent hot play Monday with a 2-1 win over the Stars, who began a five-game road trip Sunday by routing the Islanders 6-2.Article continues below ...The Rangers (11-8-2) have won eight of their last 10 games (8-1-1). The only game in that span in which they didn’t collect a point? Last Thursday, when the host Islanders posted a 7-5 win at Barclays Center.The Islanders’ win was their franchise-record eighth straight against the Rangers. Hall of Fame-bound goalie Henrik Lundqvist has started six of those games, including last Thursday when he was pulled after allowing five goals in the first two periods. Lundqvist was spared the loss, which was handed to Georgiev, because the Islanders’ sixth goal ended up being the game-winner.If all goes according to plan for the Rangers, Lundqvist will be watching a bunch of hungry teammates Wednesday night.“We have a little bit of a chip on our shoulder because of how it’s gone as of late,” defenseman Brendan Smith told reporters after practice Tuesday.The Islanders (10-7-2) may feel the same way after Trotz’s blistering assessment of Sunday’s loss — the most lopsided defeat for the Islanders since Trotz became head coach before this season. Goalie Thomas Greiss was pulled after allowing the first three of the Stars’ four goals in the second period, but Trotz made it clear afterward he wasn’t blaming Greiss, who allowed two goals or fewer in five of his first nine starts this season.“I heard Thomas take the blame for a couple goals — no http://www.arizonacardinalsteamonline.com/josh-rosen-jersey , they’re not hiding behind the goalie tonight, sorry,” Trotz said. “Thomas has played very well for us over the course (of the season) and he’s covered up a lot of our mistakes. So I’m putting this on the team. We need more from some of our top guys. Plain and simple, (he’s) done protecting them.”The Islanders didn’t practice Tuesday, so it will likely take until faceoff Wednesday to determine who he may have been targeting. One possibility is struggling defenseman Nick Leddy, who was on the ice for four Stars goals Sunday and is a minus-45 since the start of last season.Georgiev hasn’t played since he made his first career appearance against the Islanders and stopped five of six shots in the third period. He last started Nov. 10 when he picked up the win after making 34 saves in the Rangers’ 5-4 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets.Robin Lehner, who made 11 saves in relief of Greiss on Sunday, is likely to draw the start for the Islanders. Lehner made his most recent start Nov. 10, when he took the loss after making 27 saves as the Islanders fell to the Florida Panthers 4-2. He is 2-4-2 in eight career games against the Rangers.
