, Roberto Luongo made 29 saves and the Panthers beat the Philadelphia Flyers 2-1 Tuesday night for their fifth straight win.“It’s starting to feel like toward the end of last season,” Luongo said, referring to a five-game winning streak that concluded a year in which the Panthers missed the playoffs. “We’re confident we can get a win no matter the situation,”Jakub Voracek had the lone goal for the Flyers, who had won three straight and five of six.Both teams have rebounded nicely after struggling early in the season. The Panthers are 7-5-3, while the Flyers are 9-8-1.Just eight seconds after Voracek tied the game, Luongo stoned him on a breakaway after Nolan Patrick won the face-off. Oskar Lindblom hit a post on a shot a few minutes later for Philadelphia.“I thought I had him but I was unlucky,” Lindblom said.Down 2-0 after two periods, the Flyers came out with energy to start the third. Voracek snapped a shot from the right side past Luongo for his fifth goal to cut the deficit in half.But they couldn’t get another one past the veteran.“They made a strong push, they were flying all over the ice and had us on our heels but Lu made a couple big saves,” Florida’s Mike Hoffman said.Ekblad scored his first goal this season to give the Panthers a 1-0 lead almost midway through the second period. Shortly after Ivan Provorov’s tripping penalty gave Florida a power play, Frank Vatrano deflected Hoffman’s slap shot and the puck trickled to the left side of the net. Ekblad flipped a backhander that hit goaltender Brian Elliott’s stick and glove before going into the net.“I was just trying to whack it toward the next and got lucky,” Ekblad said. “It has been a while. I never waited this long to score a goal at any level. It’s tough to stay resilient.”Hoffman has a point in 13 straight games, tying Pavel Bure’s franchise.Dadonov made it 2-0 late in the second period on his eighth goal. He skated from his blue line up the ice and fired a wrister from just outside the right circle into the top shelf.“They’re a good Womens Kris Russell Jersey

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Valtteri Filppula isn’t taking many shots, but the third-line center is making them count.The New York Islanders decided to follow his lead, with Filppula scoring two goals on two shots to help his team snap a two-game road losing streak with a 7-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night.Filppula, Matt Martin, Leo Komarov and Andrew Ladd each had a goal in the third period as the Islanders set a season high in scoring.“It’s always nice to get a couple goals, and I think all of our lines played really well,” said Filppula, who also had an assist for his first three-point game since Dec. 16, 2016, against Calgary.Casey Cizikas had a goal for the second straight game, and Josh Bailey scored on the power play.

, gave up a really easy short-handed goal there and just stopped playing.”The Islanders took a 1-0 lead at 4:05 of the first on a goal by Cizikas.Toffoli tied it at 1, redirecting Drew Doughty’s shot from the blue line at 14:56 for the Kings’ first power-play goal of the season. Los Angeles had started 0 for 22 on the power play and was the last team in the NHL to score with the man advantage.And while the Kings got their power play on track, they continue to struggle on the penalty kill. Los Angeles has allowed a power-play goal in three straight games and four of the last five, killing just 64.7 percent of penalties (11 of 17) in that span.“I think we’ve got some soul searching to do,” defenseman Alec Martinez said. “What happened there at the end was unacceptable. It’s not one guy in particular. It’s all of us. We’ve got to figure some things out.”Kings center Anze Kopitar did not play because of illness. It was the first time he missed a game since Jan. 18, 2017, and ended a streak of playing in 126 consecutive games.Lehner left late in the third period after he was struck in the upper body by a puck, Islanders coach Barry Trotz said. Thomas Greiss played the final 7:04 and stopped all five shots he faced.NOTES: Filppula, Ladd and Scott Mayfield each had three points.
