SUNRISE Mattias Janmark Jersey , Fla. (AP) — After a night when they produced very little, the Florida Panthers‘ top line clicked to spark a winning rally in the third period Saturday night.Jonathan Huberdeau scored with 1:06 left and Florida came back in the final period for a 2-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.Florida mounted the winning rush when Keith Yandle sent a long stretch-pass to Evgenii Dadonov along the boards near the Florida offensive zone. Dadonov slid a pass back to Aleksander Barkov, who found Huberdeau skating in cross-ice on the back door for his 10th goal.“Me and Barky were talking to each other and we were like, there’s no way nothing is going to happen,” Huberdeau said. “We had so many chances. Finally it happened at the end. We just stuck with it and it worked out for us.”The play wouldn’t have started without a heads-up pass by Yandle, who saw Dadonov alone halfway down the ice.“It was a great play by (Dadonov) stretching the zone and getting open. Those guys did their magic. It’s what they do. They play big for us every night and find ways to win us games,” Yandle said.Flyers interim head coach Scott Gordon said it was a risky play by Florida, who improved to 5-0-3 in the second game of back-to-back contests.“It started off, they got possession and went into a set breakout. When that happens, you have to get into your position. They just took off. And as soon as they took off, they fired it up the boards. … It’s a bit of a hope play by them Radek Faksa Jersey ,” Gordon said.Down 1-0, Florida’s second-ranked power play finally put the Panthers on the board in the third period. Huberdeau slid a pass through the slot to Mike Hoffman, who buried his team-leading 18th goal at 13:16 to tie it at 1.In Florida’s 5-3 home loss on Friday to Montreal, the Panthers top line produced just one assist.“I loved Barkov’s line all game,” Florida coach Bob Boughner said. “I think Dadonov had six or seven chances. But we didn’t stop coming. We just kept bringing our game and putting pucks behind them. It was a big difference from last night’s game and today’s game.”Shayne Gostisbehere scored for the Flyers, who lost their second straight.Barkov had two assists, and James Reimer stopped 34 shots. Carter Hart had 34 saves for the Flyers.Just like the night before in a 5-3 home loss to Montreal, the Panthers fell behind in the opening minutes. Gostisbehere sent in his fifth goal after a pass from Jordan Weal on 3-on-2 rush at 1:45 of the first period.Philadelphia killed 40 seconds of a 5-on-3 power play and the remaining 1:20 with the Panthers on the man advantage in the middle portion of the period.Hart stood strong in the second period as the Panthers put nine shots on goal, with a few being good scoring chances. He stuffed Denis Malgin in the first minute after a slick drop-pass by defenseman Mike Matheson as he went behind the Flyers’ goal.The 20-year-old goalie denied Dadonov twice in a minute — once point-blank from the middle of the slot at 14:03, the other when the Russian forward circled behind Hart’s goal and lifted a high shot from in close that Hart held.NOTES: With Flyers third-line center Nolan Patrick (upper body) expected to be out the next four to five days, Weal centered a line between Scott Laughton and Michael Raffl after being out most of December. Weal Authentic Stephen Johns Jersey , 26, had only played in two of the last 12 games. … Scott Gordon is 3-2-1 since being named Philadelphia’s interim coach on Dec. 17. … Florida traded goaltender Michael Hutchinson to Toronto for a 2020 fifth-round draft pick. A free-agent acquisition, Hutchinson appeared in four games, logging a 1-1-2 record with a 4.18 goals against average and an .839 save percentage. … Matheson played in his 200th NHL game.UP NEXTFlyers: Visit the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday.Panthers: Visit the Detroit Red Wings on Monday. DENVER (AP) Gabriel Landeskog sat at his locker stall, his skates still laced and most of his gear still on.The only thing missing was his jersey, which was given to a lucky fan.Quick, get the captain a new one – the Colorado Avalanche are going to need it where they’re going.Nathan MacKinnon scored his first goal in 10 games, Jonathan Bernier stopped 32 shots and the Avalanche earned the final playoff spot in the Western Conference with a 5-2 win over the St. Louis Blues on Saturday night.Defensemen Samuel Girard and Tyson Barrie scored, while Landeskog and Matt Nieto added empty-netters for the Avalanche, who won the West’s second wild card and head to the postseason for the first time since 2013-14. They will face top-seeded Nashville in the opening round a season after recording a league-low 48 points.”It’s an unbelievable accomplishment,” MacKinnon said. ”It’s got to be one of the best accomplishments in modern sports history.”Landeskog already has a start on his playoff beard.Game No. 82 for these two boiled down to a winner-take-all scenario. Although Youth Tyler Pitlick Jersey , there was one caveat – the Avalanche couldn’t allow the game to go to overtime since the Blues held the tiebreaker. St. Louis pulled out all the stops late in the third: Taking out goalie Jake Allen with around 4:35 remaining. Landeskog and Nieto sealed the win with empty-net tallies that sent the raucous crowd into full celebration mode.”Credit to Colorado they’ve improved immensely over the last couple of years,” Allen said. ”They played well again tonight.”Colorado finished with 95 points to become first NHL team to post a 40-point gain over an 82-game season since the Pittsburgh Penguins jumped 47 from 2005-06 (58) to 2006-07 (105).Next up, rest. That’s Landeskog’s plan anyway – lay on the couch with his dog and watch the Masters on Sunday. Then, get ready for Nashville.”If we play the way we played tonight, we have a good chance,” Bernier said.Jaden Schwartz had a power-play goal and Brayden Schenn scored with 38.4 seconds remaining for the Blues, who saw their playoff appearance streak halted at six straight seasons.The Blues arrived in town late following a 4-1 win in Chicago on Friday night. They sent Allen to the Mile High City early so he would be better rested for the big game. Allen made one diving save after another to keep things close. He even played through a tweaked hamstring he suffered in the game.”Any other game I probably would have went out but this a game we needed to win,” Allen said.St. Louis was dealt a blow midway through the first period when leading goal-scorer Vladimir Tarasenko left with an upper-body injury. He didn’t return.”He was very disappointed,” Blues coach Mike Yeo said.Leading 2-1 late in the third, MacKinnon beat Allen with a shot over the goaltender’s shoulder. MacKinnon had been held without a goal since March 18 when he had two against Detroit. He finished with 97 points – the most by an Avalanche player since Joe Sakic had 100 in 2006-07.Barrie gave Colorado a 2-0 lead in the second on a goal from the blue line that led to a challenge by St. Louis, which felt the puck left the zone. The officials took a long look before ruling it a good goal and determined ”there were no definitive replays which showed that the puck left the attacking zone Tyler Seguin Jersey ,” according to NHL situation room.”I’m not going to blame the season on a bad call,” Yeo said.Girard scored his first goal since Feb. 22 on a slap shot through traffic with 46 seconds left in the first period to give the Avs a 1-0 advantage. He was acquired by Colorado from Nashville in the three-team deal that sent Matt Duchene to Ottawa in November.The last time two teams met in their final game of the season while contending for the last available playoff spot in the conference was 2010. In that contest, Philadelphia beat the New York Rangers in a shootout.”What a night,” Landeskog said.NOTES: Blues D Alex Pietrangelo played in his 617th career NHL game. He surpassed Bob Plager for second on the team’s all-time list for defensemen. … Colorado was without D Erik Johnson and G Semyon Varlamov, who are both sidelined by knee injuries. Varlamov won’t have a chance to play in the first round, coach Jared Bednar said. … Colorado had 28 home wins, matching a franchise record for wins that was set in 2000-01, when the team hoisted the Stanley Cup.UP NEXTBlues: Offseason.Avalanche: Face Nashville in the first round of the playoffs. The Avs were 0-3-1 against the Predators this season.—
