Vincent Trocheck scored the game-winning goal in the third round of the shootout as the visiting Florida Panthers overcame three one-goal deficits and recorded a wild 6-5 victory over the New York Rangers on Sunday afternoon. The Panthers won it when Trocheck made a wide move and then reached the middle of the ice. He waited for New York goaltender Henrik Lundqvist to go down and then flipped a wrist shot over him and into the back of the net for his 13th career shootout goal.

Frank Vatrano also scored in the shootout, ripping a forehand shot off Lundqvist's pad in the first round. Rookie Kaapo Kakko scored in the third round of the shootout for the Rangers after Florida backup goalie Sam Montembeault made a diving left pad save on Artemi Panarin in the first round. He also scored after Tony DeAngelo hit the right post in the second round.

The Rangers took a 5-4 lead on Chris Kreider's deflection during a power play with 85 seconds left in the second period, but Florida tied the game when Brian Boyle deflected Keith Yandle's slap shot over Lundqvist at the 7:01 mark in the third. Ryan Lindgren scored in the first while Filip Chytil, Brady Skjei and Kakko scored in the second for New York before Kreider tallied.

Aleksander Barkov and Dominic Toninato scored 30 seconds apart in the first period for Florida. Evgenio Dadonov and Vatrano tallied in the second period for the Panthers, who scored a power-play goal for the sixth straight game. The teams combined for six goals in the second period.

Montembeault made 29 saves while Lundqvist stopped 30 shots. Lindgren got his first career goal at the 5:06 mark when he retrieved the rebound of Panarin's shot in the right corner, moved back to the front of the net and flipped Ryan Strome's pass over Montembeault's left shoulder.

The Panthers took a 2-1 lead when Barkov lifted a forehand shot over Lundqvist's left shoulder with 1:47 remaining and Toninato pushed a rebound into the net on the next shift. The Rangers forged a 2-2 tie 88 seconds into the second when Chytil flipped a wrist shot into the net, but Florida took a 3-2 lead when Dadonov one-timed Barkov's pass into the net 4:42 into the period.

The Rangers tied it less than a minute later when Skjei's backhand from the left side deflected off Mike Matheson and into the net. Kakko made it 4-3 two minutes later when his wrist shot hopped over Matheson's stick and into the net, but the Panthers forged a 4-4 tie 59 seconds later on Vatrano's breakaway goal.
