Shattenkirk Lifts Rangers to OT Win Over Florida

Blueshirts bow 5-2-2 in their last nine games

by Matt Calamia @MattCalamia /

Kevin Shattenkirk's second goal of the game lifted the Rangers to a 5-4 overtime victory against the Florida Panthers Saturday to extend the team's win streak to a season-high three games.

J.T. Miller hit Rick Nash with a pass from the Rangers' end to spring a 2-on-1 with Shattenkirk. Nash fed Shattenkirk with a pass and the blueliner buried a shot past Roberto Luongo 1:08 into the extra period to complete the two-game sweep of Florida.

"The ice was a little choppy at the end of the game there," Shattenkirk said. "I just wanted to make sure I settled it down and got my head up. I figured at that point - I know he's a pretty aggressive goalie, so I figured I might have that far side."
