NEW YORK (AP) -Stephen Weiss and Gregory Campbell scored 12 seconds apart in the second period and Craig Anderson made 37 saves for his sixth NHL shutout in the Florida Panthers' 4-0 victory over the New York Rangers on Sunday.

With Florida leading 1-0 on Ville Peltonen's breakaway goal earlier in the second, Weiss and Campbell connected in quick-strike fashion to knock out Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist for the second time in three home games.

Anderson, making his second straight start over No. 1 goalie Tomas Vokoun, had his second shutout of the season. He stopped 43 shots Friday night in a shootout loss to the Rangers in Florida. Michael Frolik added a goal and assist for Florida.

ATLANTA (AP) - Keith Tkachuk tied it at 2 late in the second period for his 1,000th point, and Brad Boyes scored the go-ahead goal midway through the third for St. Louis.

Tkachuk, in his 17th NHL season, has 511 goals and 489 assists in 1,077 regular-season games. Jay McClement added an empty-net goal, and David Backes also scored.

Colby Armstrong and Niclas Havelid scored for Atlanta. The Thrashers have lost six of their last seven games.
