SUNRISE Ryan Johansen Jersey , Fla. (AP) Vincent Trocheck got the Florida Panthers going at just the right time Saturday night.Denis Malgin snapped a tie with 3:45 left after Trocheck tied the game with a pair of goals, and the Panthers overcame a two-goal deficit by scoring four times in the third period for a 4-2 victory over the Arizona Coyotes.Trocheck put Florida on the board at 6:13 of the third when his wrister beat goalie Darcy Kuemper to the short side. The center tied it at 2 when Mark Pysyk’s shot deflected off the post and Trocheck reached around and tapped it in for the first 30-goal season of his career.”We needed one of our big guys to step up. For (Trocheck) to get his 30th there, I think it’s a statement,” Panthers coach Bob Boughner said. ”That’s what he’s been all year. I call him the engine of the team. When he’s going, we’re going.”Florida improved to 10-2-0 in its last 12 home games.Malgin scored from the slot by gathering a loose puck and firing in his 11th of the season.”It’s always nice to score. If it’s a game-winning goal it’s nice, but most important is that we won this game and it was huge for us for the playoffs,” said Malgin, who was moved from second-line right wing to the same spot on the third line.”My line has done a good job. I was just waiting there and the puck came to me and I just shot it and it went in.”The Panthers remained three points behind New Jersey for the final Eastern Conference playoff spot. Florida has two games in hand on the Devils.”Their big boys started to play, Trocheck and (Aleksander) Barkov. We didn’t have an answer for them,” Arizona coach Rick Tocchet said.Jamie McGinn added an empty-netter with 14 seconds to play, with Trocheck getting an assist for a three-point night.”Momentum is a real thing in hockey. We knew if we got one we would get that momentum and kind of keep throwing pucks at the net and hopefully get a couple bounces to go in,” said Trocheck, whose previous high was 25 goals during the 2015-16 season.Clayton Keller and Richard Panik scored for the Coyotes, and Derek Stepan had two assists.In a matchup of backup goalies, James Reimer made 26 saves for the Panthers while starting in place of an ailing Roberto Luongo. Kuemper stopped 43 shots for Arizona.”Obviously, they’re desperate in the position they’re at. They just kind of kept coming. Unfortunately, we just couldn’t hold them off,” said Kuemper, traded to Arizona by the Los Angeles Kings on Feb. 21. ”It’s a desperate team over there that was able to get the upper hand late.”Keller scored when Panik’s shot from the right circle bounced to the rookie, who netted his 22nd goal at 14:36 of the first period for a 1-0 lead.That tied Keller for most goals by a Coyotes rookie with Peter Mueller in 2007-08. Keller also holds the franchise rookie records for assists and points. The 19-year-old right wing stretched his point streak to seven games.Arizona made it 2-0 when Stepan’s shot on the power play deflected off Panik and past Reimer at 1:33.The goal was Panik’s 11th this season and third in four games. The left wing also has a five-game point streak.NOTES: Arizona scratched centers Laurent Dauphin, Freddie Hamilton and Zac Rinaldo Viktor Arvidsson Jersey , plus defensemen Jason Demers and Niklas Hjalmarsson (lower body), who sustained a non-contact injury in Arizona’s 6-5 loss Thursday at Carolina. … Stepan has four consecutive multi-point games. .

PAUL, Minn. (AP) Those Minnesota Wild fans waiting in concession lines or lingering too long in the concourse during the first intermission sure missed a show.Eric Staal has put on quite the must-see performance himself this season.Staal’s second goal of the night for Minnesota capped a franchise-record flurry to start the second period, and the Wild cruised to a 6-2 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday night.”Everything he touches,” coach Bruce Boudreau said, invoking the Greek mythological king Midas, ”it turns into gold.”Staal, the second overall pick in the 2003 draft by the Hurricanes who spent 13 years with the club until a late-season trade, has 64 goals in 149 games with the Wild. That’s tied for ninth in the NHL over the last two years. He’s also tied for 17th with 132 points, and he’s older than every player ahead of him in that span.This season, he’s tied for fourth in the league with 36 goals Robin Lehner Jersey Womens , trailing Washington’s Alex Ovechkin, Pittsburgh’s Evgeni Malkin and Winnipeg’s Patrik Laine.”I’ve got a lot of work to do if I want to catch or be around those guys,” Staal said with a slight smile. ”I’m just going to keep playing.”Nino Niederreiter, Zach Parise, Daniel Winnik and Staal scored in a span of 3:28, the fastest four-goal stretch in Wild history that gave the home team a huge lead less than four minutes after the first intermission ended.The sign that this was the Wild’s night came quickly in the second period, when Jared Spurgeon’s slap shot from the point bounced off the neck of a ducking Niederreiter and past goalie Cam Ward with just 23 seconds elapsed.”We’ve got to come out of the dressing room a little bit more organized and ready to play,” Hurricanes coach Bill Peters said.Winnik scored on his 33rd birthday, prompting Peters to pull Ward for Scott Darling. Then, just 15 seconds later, on the first shot Darling faced, Staal broke free in the Carolina zone, faked right and dragged the puck left to poke a backhander in for his 10th goal in the last nine games .”I want to win every time I get on the ice,” Staal said. ”But when you pump ’em in like that for a bit, I think you feel a little bad.”In seven games since Jason Zucker and Mikael Granlund joined Staal on the first line, the trio has combined for 16 goals and 19 assists. With 15 games to go, Staal has a solid chance at the third 40-goal season of his career.”I don’t think anybody would’ve thought he’d have 36 goals at this stage of the game,” Boudreau said. ”I remember when we signed him, when we were talking in the room, and thinking if he could give us 50 to 60 points we would think it was a great signing.”Staal’s first score came 4:35 into the game on the power play after a tripping call on Victor Rask, adding to Carolina’s NHL-leading penalty total. Parise’s goal was also with the man advantage for the Wild http://www.officialdevils.com/authentic-adidas-cory-schneider-jersey , who entered the game ranked eighth in the league on the power play. The Hurricanes came in 22nd on the penalty kill.The Wild, whose post-New Year’s Day surge has thrust them into third place in the Central Division, are 10-3-2 in their last 12 games. They pushed their lead over fourth-place Dallas, which controls the first wild card spot, to three points.Devan Dubnyk made 29 saves for his fifth win in his last six starts, and the Wild raised their home record to an NHL-leading 24-5-6. Matt Cullen, another long-time former Hurricanes player who teamed with Staal on the 2006 Stanley Cup champion squad, scored late for the Wild.Phillip Di Giuseppe and Derek Ryan scored for Carolina in the third period on Dubnyk, who has allowed only nine goals over his last five victories.The Hurricanes lost points on each of the competitors in the Eastern Conference wild card race, with New Jersey (76) and Columbus (73) currently holding the two spots and Florida (71) also ahead of Carolina (69).”Let’s look past this one,” Ryan said. ”Let’s get rid of it and move on.”NOTESDubnyk’s last shutout was on Feb. 10, a 44-save performance against Chicago. … Wild rookie D Nick Seeler was ruled out with a strained right biceps, two nights after he engaged in an old-style, bloody fight with Detroit’s Luke Witkowski. … Hurricanes LW Joakim Nordstrom missed his fourth straight game because of an upper-body injury. … Spurgeon and Ryan Suter had two assists apiece. Wild defensemen have 166 points in 67 games, the second-most in the NHL behind Nashville.
