    NEW YORK -- Aleksander Barkov emptied out his bag of tricks trying to beat Henrik Lundqvist in a shootout. Derrick Henry Jersey .Barkov tapped the puck off his skate, made a big deke to his forehand and then tried to reach way back with one arm for a backhand shot.He got the winner, but only by a matter of luck -- and about an inch.Barkov and Vincent Trochek scored in the shootout, lifting the Florida Panthers over the New York Rangers 3-2 on Sunday night.Barkov took his unconventional approach at Lundqvist knowing a goal would win the game. Lundqvist got his stick on the puck while Barkov tried going to the backhand, but it skipped over the paddle and trickled toward the goal line.Lundqvist dove desperately as the puck approached the line, but his glove didnt swat it away until after it had fully entered the cage.The Panthers trailed twice but came back behind goals from Keith Yandle and Aaron Ekblad. The win gives Florida a 3-1 record on this four-game trip, and the Panthers also got their first victory at Madison Square Garden since April 18, 2013.Were a pretty happy team with the wins we are stringing together, Ekblad said. We look to play tight games and limit chances.James Reimer played a big role in the win, making 33 saves and stopping two more shots during the shootout. Reimer is 3-3-1 on the season.He had a great bounce-back game for him, Panthers coach Gerard Gallant said. Im real happy for him. The team worked hard ... but he had a huge effort tonight. That gave us the two points.It gets worse for New York. Mika Zibanejad left during overtime after falling hard into the end boards, and the team said he has a broken leg that will keep him out six to eight weeks.Lundqvist made 28 saves in his 700th start for the Rangers. He is only the fifth goalie in NHL history to play 700 games with one franchise.New Yorks Chris Kreider opened the scoring with 6:45 left in the first period on his fourth goal of the season. Derek Stepan skated through the neutral zone untouched and into the Panthers zone. He dished the puck off to Kreider, and he buried a shot from atop the faceoff circle for his 10th point in 13 games.Yandle tied it in the second period with a shot from the point while the Panthers were on the power play. It was his first trip back to New York since the Rangers traded him to Florida on June 20.The 30-year-old defenseman signed a seven-year, $44.45 million contract three days after the deal. Yandle spent one full season with the Rangers and part of another after they acquired him from the Coyotes on March 1, 2015.Its special for sure, Yandle said. Such a fun building to play in.The Rangers briefly retook the lead early in the third when Mats Zuccarello bounced a shot off Zibanejads body at 1:45. The goal was Zibanejads fifth of the season, but the Panthers eliminated the deficit when Ekblad scored his fifth with 7:54 left.Sunday was the first time the Rangers lost back-to-back games this season, but they remain two points ahead of the Pittsburgh Penguins for first place in the Eastern Conference. They play a home-and-home with Pittsburgh this week.They had a couple opportunities in tight where Hank (Lundqvist) had to make some big saves, Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. But thats the type of game right now that seems to be played throughout the league, tight. We were pretty even on both sides and lost in the shootout.Game notes Prior to the game, Rangers broadcaster Sam Rosen was honored for his induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame. Rosen was joined on the ice by members of his family and broadcast partner Joe Micheletti, and former partner John Davidson. ... The Rangers scratched D Adam Clendening and C Oscar Lindberg. ... Zibanejad appeared in his 300th game and is three assists away from 100 for his career. ... The Panthers scratched C Seth Griffith, C Jared McCain and D Dylan McIlrath, who was making his first visit to New York since he was traded by the Rangers on Nov. 8.UP NEXTRangers: Travel to Pittsburgh on Monday night to play the first game of a home-and-home.Panthers: Return to BB&T Center to host Philadelphia on Tuesday night.

She laughs and admits: Every once in a while, Ill come to lunch with the girls, and well have a treat like a pizza.I ask Francis about Beckford-Chambers and what she brings to the team. The vice-captain is full of praise for her team-mate: She inspires us all to constantly be better at training and all the things we have to do outside of training as well.

More than 15 hours have passed since I arrived at her house that morning. Im pleased when she tells me that its time to head home. She then adds: And get ready to do it all again tomorrow.Before we say our goodbyes, I shake my head in disbelief and ask her how she maintains such a busy schedule. Her response is quick: I guess I lead a double life, and I wouldnt have it any other way.
