Frans Nielsen also scored in the shootout.Having the lead in the third period, leading 3-1, you want to finish the game, Halak said.

Roberto Luongo made 30 saves.Jonathan Huberdeau scored the only goal in the shootout for Florida.It was a huge comeback for us, but Ive got to find a way to make some saves in the shootout, Luongo said. Its not acceptable for me to let in two.Leading 3-1, the Islanders seemed to be cruising to victory midway through the third period but the Panthers scored twice in the final 10 minutes to tie it.Florida closed to 3-2 on Campbells power-play goal at 9:58.

Its nice to feel Im starting to escape the last couple games and play the way Im capable of.The Panthers tied it with 2:35 left as Ekblads slap shot from just inside the blue line got past a screened Halak.For whatever reason, we stopped moving our feet, and it was just a lack of discipline, and it led to penalties, Islanders coach Jack Capuano said. Its the first time weve done it all year, really. Weve got to learn from it.The Islanders seemed to put the game away earlier in the third when they stretched their lead to 3-1 at 3:57.

It went under his pads, and Kulemin swept it in.The Islanders had trailed 1-0 but scored twice in 1:59 to take the lead.They got even at 13:09 of the second when Okposo passed the puck to Tavares in the right circle for a wrist shot that beat Luongo on the glove side.New York went ahead on Stromes breakaway goal. Strome took a nice pass from Thomas Hickey near the red line and came in alone. He put a wrist shot past Luongo with 4:52 left in the second.We just want to keep it going, Islanders forward Josh Bailey said. Its a long year, and when you get on a bit of a roll, you want to ride the wave as long as you can.An odd play came with three minutes left in the second. Floridas Aleksander Barkov shot the puck that Halak trapped between the back of his head and the crossbar. A video review confirmed that a goal wasnt scored.Hayes goal at 12:37 of the first was his third in three games and gave the Panthers a 1-0 lead.Trocheck made a behind-the-back pass from in back of the net to Hayes in front, and his shot got by Halak.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the signing has not been made official. Hardy, who said in January hed have no issue if the team used the franchise tag to keep him, will make $13.1 million for one season if he doesnt sign a long-term extension. The Panthers have until July 15 to sign Hardy to a long-term deal. After that date they cant discuss a contract extension until after the season is over. When the Panthers used the franchise tag on Hardy Friday, general manager Dave Gettleman said in a press release it was done so to buy more time to potentially work out a long-term extension with the former Mississippi star. "The franchise meechanism gives us time to secure the services of a very good player while we continue to look at the future of Greg with the Carolina Panthers," Gettleman said.dddddddddddd "We have had great dialogue with both Greg and his agent. It was important to keep our defensive front together." The four-year NFL veteran had 15 sacks last season, tying a franchise record previously established by Kevin Greene in 1996, and was selected to his first Pro Bowl. Hardy has 26 sacks in his last two seasons. Hardy led the Panthers with 38 quarterback pressures last season and posted a career-high 67 tackles for the NFC South champions. The Panthers led the league in sacks last season with 60. Gettleman said Hardy was "a big reason we were able to lead the league in sacks last year and keeps our defensive line intact."
