DETROIT (AP) — There was time for one more good chance in overtime before the clock would run out. Andreas Athanasiou took the puck near the blue line Dallas Stars Hats Womens , skated in and backhanded it toward the front of the goal, where Dylan Larkin was open.“I saw the lane to the net,” Larkin said. “I knew he was going to get it to me, so I just tried to put myself on the far side of the net.” Larkin scored with 5.1 seconds remaining in overtime, capping an impressive late comeback by the Detroit Red Wings in a 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers on Friday night. Athanasiou tied the game with 2:02 remaining in the third period, then made the pass to Larkin, who redirected the puck past Henrik Lundqvist for his seventh goal of the season.“Just took a look at the clock,” Athanasiou said. “Got the puck up, (Mike Green) was screaming for me to get it up there. I saw Larks and tried to get it to the net.”The Rangers led 2-0 after two periods but had their four-game winning streak snapped. Detroit has won five of six after winning just one of its first 10 games.Kevin Shattenkirk and Neal Pionk scored 40 seconds apart during an extended New York power play late in the second period, but Justin Abdelkader began the Detroit rally with a goal early in the third.Lundqvist remained a win behind Hall of Famer Jacques Plante for seventh place on the career list.“This one hurts, because we had everything under control,” Lundqvist said.The Rangers scored twice while Detroit’s Jacob de la Rose was serving a double-minor for high-sticking. Shattenkirk beat goalie Jimmy Howard with a wrist shot from the top of the left circle. Then, with de la Rose still in the box, Pionk’s perimeter shot appeared to deflect off a Detroit player on its way in.Lundqvist’s bid for his first shutout in nearly a year ended with 18:14 left in the third. Gustav Nyquist took the puck from Rangers defenseman Brendan Smith and fed Abdelkader on the doorstep for an easy goal.“We cheated the game with a 2-0 lead and that’s the result,” Rangers coach David Quinn said. “I thought we had learned that lesson Custom Dallas Stars Jerseys , but we obviously haven’t. You can’t do that in this league.”Athanasiou, back after missing four games with a lower-body injury, tied it toward the end of the third when he sped in from the left wing and backhanded the puck past Lundqvist.“A lot of speed. I knew I could cut in,” Athanasiou said. “Got hooked a little bit, was able to get the puck back and I was able to fake Lundqvist out.”The Red Wings also trailed 2-0 before rallying to beat Vancouver in a shootout Tuesday.“We need to play the first period with the same urgency that we have in the third period,” Detroit coach Jeff Blashill said.NOTES: Mats Zuccarello (groin strain) missed the game for New York. … De la Rose left with an upper-body injury. … With Brett Howden, Lias Andersson and Filip Chytil, the Rangers had three forwards age 20 or younger in the same regular-season game for the first time since Oct. 13, 1990, when Tie Domi, Troy Mallette and Steven Rice played at Washington. … It was the 12th time in the last 13 games between Detroit and New York that the game was decided by one goal.UP NEXTRangers: Visit Columbus on Saturday night.Red Wings: Visit Carolina on Saturday night. OTTAWA — Carey Price can move into a tie for second place on the all-time list of Montreal Canadiens goaltending wins Saturday night at Canadian Tire Centre.By defeating the Ottawa Senators, Price will record victory number 289, same as Patrick Roy and behind only Jacques Plante, who won 314 games.It will be the 563rd game for Price, while Roy played 551 and Plante played 556.Article continues below ...“That’s a statistic I can definitely be proud of www.redwingsshoponline.com ,” Price told reporters after practice on Friday, per NHL.com. “I’ve played with a lot of great hockey players and on a lot of good teams in my career. It helped me along the way to get here. There are a lot of people in my life who have helped me get to this point, and I’m very grateful for all of them.”Plagued by injuries in two of the past three seasons, the 31-year old Price has looked sharp through four starts in 2018-19. Into Ottawa he takes a 2-1-1 record with a 2.24 goals against average and .912 save percentage, giving the Canadiens (4-1-1) a little bit of their swagger back.“He’s a dominant player that other teams have to prepare for,” Brendan Gallagher, who has been teammates with Price for his entire, seven-season career, told NHL.com. “With him, it’s come to a point where you just expect brilliance every single night. He’s been through some ups and downs, he’s dealt with adversity, but he’s handled it as well as anyone can. What he’s meant to this team and organization is impressive. It’s fun to be his teammate.”The Canadiens have won their last three games defeating the Pittsburgh Penguins, Detroit Red Wings and, on Wednesday, downing the St. Louis Blues 3-2. The Senators (3-2-1) have won two in a row Detroit Red Wings T-Shirts Womens , beating the Los Angeles Kings and Dallas Stars by scores of 5-1 and 4-1, respectively.The Senators suffered a significant injury Monday against the Stars, however.Impressive first round pick Brady Tkachuk tore a leg ligament during the first period – but finished the game – and is expected to miss a month. Taking his place alongside Chris Tierney and Mark Stone on a line that was enjoying success will be Ryan Dzingel, who missed the last two games with a lower body injury.Dzingel, the team’s co-goal scoring leaders last season with 23, had two goals and two assists in four outings before coming out of the lineup.“We had a lot of time off,” Dzingel said. “It was just a precautionary thing to make sure it didn’t stretch out for the whole season. I feel a lot better now.“It was a full team decision and I’m glad they helped me out with that. Guys who are playing don’t want to take time off, so it’s hard to say yes to that. But it was a good idea.”The fact that the Canadiens and Senators are off to winning starts is unexpected in what is considered a transition year for both teams but Ottawa coach Guy Boucher doesn’t see the Canadiens that way, however.“They’ve played terrific, but I’m not surprised,” Boucher said. “When I sit in my office and look at their lineup, I don’t know why people were not expecting them to be good. They’ve got four solid lines of good hockey players that are coming at you, with a terrific goaltender.”
