SUNRISE Conor Sheary Jersey Womens , Fla. (AP) — It didn’t take long for Columbus defenseman Seth Jones to go on offense.Jones scored 18 seconds into overtime and the Blue Jackets defeated the Florida Panthers 4-3 on Saturday night.Jones’ overtime goal was his seventh, the most regular-season overtime goals among defensemen since the 2013-14 season, tying him with Oliver Ekman-Larsson.Pierre-Luc Dubois made a pass from his knees from the left side to Jones in the right circle, and his shot beat Reimer on the glove side in the opening minute of the extra period.“He (Dubois) makes a heck of a play on his knees to get it to me and I just tried to bury it,” Jones said. “Luc made the entire play.”Dubois was tripped up on the play, but was still able to get the pass off.“I think if I did it another 10 times, I wouldn’t get it,” Dubois said. “He (Jones) is a defenseman, but he seems to have that forward approach where he can sniff offensive situations and find open space and read off the players he’s on the ice with. He’s a D, but he can find those opportunities like a forward.”Brandon Dubinsky, Josh Anderson and Anthony Duclair also scored for the Blue Jackets. Sergei Bobrovsky made 27 saves. The Blue Jackets have won seven of their past nine games.Aaron Ekblad, Mike Hoffman and Jonathan Huberdeau scored for the Panthers. Keith Yandle had two assists. James Reimer stopped 31 shots. The Panthers are winless in their last seven games against Columbus (0-5-2).“We had a lot of great parts in the game Tage Thompson Jersey Womens , a lot of great pushes, but the one big mistake keeps haunting us,” Panthers coach Bob Boughner said. “We’ve got to get better at that.”With the score tied 2-all, the Blue Jackets took a 3-2 lead at 6:58 of the third. Dubinsky got the puck away from a Panthers defenseman, skated in along the boards, and got the puck by Reimer on a shot from the right circle.The Panthers tied the score at 3 on Ekblad’s goal. He backhanded the puck between Bobrovsky’s pads with 2:13 left in the third.“We had more than one chance to win that game,” Ekblad said. “We fought our way back into overtime but it’s not enough. Every point’s important. Not satisfied with that one point, but it’s good to have it.”Trailing 2-1, the Blue Jackets tied the game at 2 with 2:56 left in the second. A shot by Boone Jenner bounced off Reimer and into the air, and Anderson batted it in.The Blue Jackets went ahead 1-0 on Duclair’s goal 1:37 in.

Jakub Voracek was psyched at the mere suggestion the Philadelphia Flyers might play an NHL game in his native Czech Republic.“I’m not going to lie to you, it would be great Dalton Prout Jersey Womens ,” Voracek said with a smile. “Obviously to play an NHL game in your home country, it’d be awesome.”Voracek will get that chance next season when the Flyers open the regular season against the Chicago Blackhawks in Prague on Oct. 4. The NHL on Thursday announced that matchup and two games between the Buffalo Sabres and Tampa Bay Lightning in Stockholm in November as part of its now-annual Global Series.It’s the third consecutive year the NHL is staging regular-season games in Europe and eighth overall. This will be Philadelphia’s first appearance as part of the series.The games in Stockholm on Nov. 8-9 should feature a handful of Swedes, including Sabres 2018 top pick Rasmus Dahlin and 2018 Lightning Norris Trophy winner Victor Hedman.“Yes!” was how Dahlin described his first reaction to learning the news.“I was so happy. I wanted to have it, but I wasn’t expecting it in my second year,” the 18-year-old following a 4-2 loss to Toronto.“It’s great for me, but I also think it’s going to be amazing for my family and friends, too, to be able to see a live NHL game,” Dahlin said. “And me playing there, a lot of them will never have a chance to see me play hockey.”Dahlin noted it could also be a homecoming for several teammates in a Sabres organization stocked with Swedish-born players. Goalie Linus Ullmark and Johan Larsson are from Sweden, as are minor-league prospects and Victor Olofsson, Rasmus Asplund and Lawrence Pilut. Forward Alexander Nylander was born in Canada Elias Lindholm Jersey Womens , but has represented Sweden on the international stage.“It’s so fun to share it with other Swedes,” Dahlin said. “It’s probably the best thing that could happen.”The Sabres opened the 2011-12 season playing Anaheim at Helsinki, Finland, and then Los Angeles at Berlin, Germany.This season, the New Jersey Devils and Edmonton Oilers opened the regular season in Gothenburg, Sweden, and the Florida Panthers and Winnipeg Jets played twice in Helsinki.Like the Devils and Oilers, the Blackhawks and Flyers will finish training camp in Europe and play an exhibition game against a local team. The Blackhawks will go to Germany and face Eisbaren Berlin on Sept. 29, and the Flyers will go to Switzerland and face HC Lausanne on Sept. 30.The NHL is also expected to have more exhibition games in China, but that matchup has not yet been announced.
