until the final second.A quick glance bet

NEW YORK, N.Y. - The New York Rangers latest victory was hardly a masterpiece, until the final second.A quick glance between Carl Hagelin and Derek Stepan produced the winning goal on New Yorks only shot of overtime. Hagelin deflected in Stepans slick backhand pass at 2:55 to give the Rangers a 3-2 come-from-behind victory over the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night.The whole game was sluggish from our part, Hagelin said. Step saw me going in. Two defencemen stepped in on him, and he made the perfect play to me.The connection gave the Rangers their third straight win heading into the All-Star break, and ended a rough run at home against the Senators. Ottawa had been 13-1-1 in its previous 15 regular-season games at Madison Square Garden since April 2006.The Senators had the better of the chances in overtime, but Hagelin put the winner behind Craig Anderson as the Rangers won for the 16th time in 19 games.They cant all be Picassos, coach Alain Vigneault said following his 494th NHL victory. This game is about finding ways to win when youre not at your best.Chris Kreider tied it for New York in the third period. Kevin Hayes also scored, and Henrik Lundqvist made 33 saves.I wouldnt want to have a start like that and depend on a late comeback, Rangers captain Ryan McDonagh said. They took a lead going into the third but ... we werent going to let this one slip away from us.Everyone knew it was going to be an ugly two points, and some team was going to have to find a way.Erik Karlsson and Milan Michalek scored 1:03 apart in the second period for Ottawa. Anderson stopped 32 shots, but let New Yorks only one in overtime get by him.I saw a pretty good pass and a pretty good deflection, Anderson said. Hagelin has a good stick. Were not winning too many close games, and its frustrating. Its not fun to be around that.The Senators are 4-6-3 in their last 13 and 9-10-9 overall in one-goal games.We played a good game. Were just not playing good enough to win close games, Ottawa forward Erik Condra said.Kreider tied it 2-all at 2:42 of the third when he took a perfect feed from defenceman Marc Staal as he cruised down the slot, deftly shifted the puck to his forehand and lifted in his 10th goal and fifth in 10 games.It was definitely a character win, Kreider said. We probably didnt have the start we wanted, had a few lulls, but it says a lot about the leadership in the room that we were able to gather ourselves and be ready to play.After falling behind 1-0 on Hayes goal, the Senators scored twice in quick succession to grab a 2-1 lead.Right after Condra was stopped by Lundqvist, the Senators regained control of the puck and worked it around the Rangers zone. Kyle Turris sent a crisp pass from the left circle to the right circle, and Karlsson snapped in his ninth goal at 13:38.Then, just 9 seconds after New Yorks Lee Stempniak was called for high-sticking, Michalek got to a rebound in front and slid a backhander that slithered its way under Lundqvists pad for his sixth goal, putting the Senators ahead with 5:19 remaining in the second.It just wasnt enough to get a much-needed win for the Senators, who are well off the playoff pace.This is how our season has gone. Close but not close enough, defenceman Jared Cowen said. Thats what separates good and great teams. We have to decide which we want to be. Its frustrating for sure. With frustration you can either use it or let it eat away at you.The Rangers had broken the scoreless deadlock at 9:29 when Hayes corralled the rebound of Dan Girardis hard shot from the right point, calmly shifted left in the slot and scored his sixth goal.The Rangers finished their second straight period on the power play, this time the remnants of a two-man advantage created when David Legwand and Eric Gryba were whistled for infractions 46 seconds apart.The teams slogged through a tight-checking first period that produced one power play for each club and a total of 16 shots — nine for the Rangers, including a hard drive by McDonagh that was stopped at the buzzer.NOTES: Vigneault coached in his 932nd NHL game, tying Rangers general manager — and former coach — Glen Sather for 26th place on the leagues career list. He has three fewer wins than Sather. ... Turris has a Senators-high 13 assists and 19 points on the road. ... The Rangers hadnt won 16 of 19 since 1993. Ryquell Armstead Jersey .

I will go into more detail when digging into the Canucks Off-Season Game Plan, which will be coming earlier this year since they are part of the non-playoff contingent, there are some reasons to think this is a favourable situation for President of Hockey Operations Trevor Linden and whomever he selects to be the new general manager. Jawaan Taylor Jersey .Y. - Brooklyn Nets centre Brook Lopez has a strained lower back and will miss at least a week.LONDON, Ont. – Tomas Kaberle was the 204th selection at the 1996 draft in St. Louis, the second to last player the Maple Leafs would draft on a day that saw the Senators pick Chris Phillips first overall. Kaberle, who could reportedly try out for the New Jersey Devils later this fall, stands as the only homegrown defenceman Toronto has sent to an All-Star game in more than 20 years, a fact that highlights the organizations difficulties drafting and developing talent of its own on the blue line. In fact, since 2000, the Leafs have drafted only six defencemen who went on to play 100 games in the NHL, a solid and yet unremarkable group featuring Carlo Colaiacovo, Jay Harrison, Ian White, Anton Stralman, Carl Gunnarsson and Luke Schenn – all of whom have since moved on from Toronto. Morgan Rielly will soon become the seventh in that group – he played 73 games as a rookie last season – the first in a pool of prospects thats become deepest and most intriguing for the Leafs on defence. "Weve got a stockpile there and theyre all different shapes and sizes," Jim Hughes, the teams director of player development said recently. Among them is Matt Finn, who finished last season as the second-highest scoring defenceman in the OHL, captaining Guelph to the leagues top record, an OHL championship and a berth in the Memorial Cup. He will make the jump to the American League this fall. "Its going to be tough," he said of the transition. "Youre playing against men now with families. Its serious. Its a job now. Its not just fun in junior anymore." "Youre not going to get all the opportunities," he continued. "Youre not going to be a superstar like you were in junior anymore. Youre going to have to earn your stripes and take it day by day. Its never going to be easy." A second round pick in 2012, Finn will now have to battle for ice-time with the Marlies, helmed by first year head coach Gord Dineen, overseeing the teams annual prospect tournament here in London. The 20-year-old Finn spent time on the ice and in the gym this past summer with some of that competition – not to mention a group from the Leafs – and understands that more will be expected. "You get a feel for what that pro level and that pro mentality is like," he said. "Being in the gym with them, seeing how they work, how hard the corner battles are, how hard it is just to get areas in front of the net to stand in position – theyre always trying to push you out and gain that ground. Being able to play with guys like that – the NHL guys, the AHL guys – who have been there and have played and have experience and not even verbally sharing it with you, but just on the ice learning it through the ways of hockey." Tom Nilsson is six months older than Finn and he too is expected to join the Marlies for the first time this fall, making the jump from his native Sweden. Hopes are quietly high for the 21-year-old, sturdy at 6-foot and nearly 200 pounds. "My goal is of course to play on the Maple Leafs, but if I start on the Marlies thats okay with me," Nilsson said. "I want to learn how to play the [North American] game and then Im going to develop from there." Nilsson hhas some Niklas Hjalmarsson to his game – Dineen offered a more physical version of Gunnarsson – mobile, sneaky physical, and willing to block to shots and offer a stable defensive presence.dddddddddddd. He started watching the Chicago Blackhawks defender more closely a couple years back, also studying the performance of fellow Swedes, Niklas Kronwall – "I like his hitting" – and Erik Karlsson, the slap-shot of the Senators defender a particular point of admiration. "Im trying to take small things off of players that I like," said Nilsson, who played with Frolunda in the Swedish Hockey League last season. Nilsson is anxious to make the adjustment to the smaller NHL rink; the organization believes his maturity and raw, hard-hitting game will aid in the transition. "Hes well-schooled," said Hughes. "Hell come over and it shouldnt be a very difficult transition for him." Nilsson might not be the only Swede making the jump to North America this fall for Toronto. He could be joined by Viktor Loov, the third-last pick of the 2012 draft and a fluid skater who played forward until the age of 15. Loov – long at 6-foot-2 and beefed up to the tune of 210 pounds – played with the teams top prospect, William Nylander, on MODO of the Swedish Hockey League last season. "He just oozes determination every shift," Dineen said of Loov (pronounced LOVE), who delivered a crushing open ice hit in the second game of the rookie tournament Sunday night. "Hes a guy that might [take] a little time in the future, but I think hes going to punch a hole for himself." The two Swedes will try to follow the path carved most recently by Petter Granberg, who made a solid adjustment to North America last fall and is expected to challenge for the seventh spot with the Leafs at training camp next week. That competition could also include Stuart Percy, a 2011 first round pick who impressed with a cerebral all-around game as a first-year Marlie last season, and Andrew MacWilliam, a hard-hitting defender who made some noise at training camp a year ago. Maybe the most NHL-ready of the Marlies group pushing toward the NHL is Korbinian Holzer, whose turbulent 22 games on the top pairing in 2013 has left him almost forgotten. The team raves about his character, leadership, and defensive ability – he was actually sturdy as a penalty killer in that brief spell with the Leafs. Far and away the biggest of the prospects on hand here in London, however, is Eric Knodel, picked in the fifth round of the 2009 draft. Knodel spent three seasons at the University of New Hampshire, employing the college route to add heft to his towering 6-foot-6 frame, while taking steps to improve his skating. He joined the Marlies at the end of his college campaign in the spring and will join the fight for ice in the fall. "I think thats the best part is everybodys going to be battling," said Knodel (pronounced KUH-nodle). "Great teams have great defence – great defence and goalies. Its always good to have good depth there." Whether any, all or even a few contribute is uncertain, but theres some upside and intrigue to a prospect pool thats been left mostly wanting.
