Florida Holds Off Pittsburgh for 4-2 Victory

MIAMI, Florida -- Jaromir Jagr's penalty shot bounced off Florida goaltender Mark Fitzpatrick's mask and over the net with 4:53 left in the game as the Panthers held on for a 4-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins.


Jagr got to take the shot after Panthers defenseman Gord Murphy was whistled for falling on the puck in the crease during a Penguins' power play.


Pittsburgh came back from a 3-0 deficit with goals by Petr Klima and Petr Nedved. After Jagr's penalty shot failed, the Penguins' spirit broke and Florida's Radek Dvorak scored an empty-net goal with 34 seconds left to preserve the win.


Capitals 3, Rangers 2. In Washington, Todd Krygier scored the game-winning goal with 58 seconds left and Jim Carey stopped 23 shots to earn his fifth straight win as the Washington Capitals beat the New York Rangers 3-2.


Krygier also had two assists, and Juneau assisted on all three Washington goals.


Avalanche 5, Canadiens 2. In Colorado, Scott Young got his third career hat trick and Patrick Roy beat his former team for the second time since being traded as the streaking Colorado Avalanche beat the Montreal Canadiens 4-2.


Roy, traded from Montreal to Colorado last December, made 37 saves to help the Avalanche run their unbeaten streak to nine games.

The Penguins were playing without scoring leader Mario Lemieux, who missed his first game of the season with a stiff lower back.





Carey eventually gave up the equalizer, but Krygier's goal enabled Washington to improve to 6-0-0 when leading after two periods.








Carey twice stopped Wayne Gretzky on close-in shots, the second time with 17:25 left and the Capitals nursing a 2-1 lead.
