SUNRISE Minnesota Wild T-Shirts Authentic , Fla. (AP) — Nick Ritchie’s timing has been good for the Anaheim Ducks the past two games.Ritchie broke a tie with 1:28 left with his second goal of the game, John Gibson made 42 saves and the Ducks beat the Florida Panthers 3-2 on Wednesday night.Ritchie grabbed a loose puck in front and beat goalie James Reimer to the right side. Ritchie also scored the winning goal in Tuesday’s 3-1 win at Tampa Bay.“Obviously, being a bigger guy, I like to get to the front of the net,” Ritchie said. “It’s a place where I need to do it on this team. I’ve done a good job of it the last couple of games and I got rewarded for it.”Josh Manson also scored to help the Ducks win for the fourth time in five games.“Anytime you can take two games, especially back-to-back, you’ve got to feel good about ourselves a little bit, but we’ve got lots of room for improvement in the game Minnesota Wild Hoodies Authentic ,” coach Randy Carlyle said. “The most encouraging part for us is we were able to get our feet underneath us and play a decent third period and found a way to get a goal.”Evgenii Dadonov and Aaron Ekblad scored for Florida, Jonathan Huberdeau had two assists, and Reimer made 22 saves.The Panthers lost for the fourth time in five games. On Monday, the Panthers gave up the tying goal with 1.8 seconds left in regulation, then lost 5-4 in overtime to the Chicago Blackhawks.“It is frustrating. These kinds of games, we’ve got to at least get a point,” Huberdeau said. “We can’t get scored on late like that. You’ve got to battle through it the whole 60.”Dadonov gave Florida a 2-1 lead midway through the second period with a power-play goal. Dadonov redirected Huberdeau’s shot from the point. The Ducks tied it at 2 at 12:28 of the second when Ritchie deflected Marcus Pettersson’s point shot.“We couldn’t find the third goal,” said coach Bob Boughner. “We haven’t been good at winning these 2-1 or 3-2 hockey games lately.”Manson opened the scoring for the Ducks 15 seconds in Minnesota Wild Hats Authentic , the second-fastest goal in Ducks history. He got the puck at the blue line off the faceoff and his shot bounced off Florida’s Bogdan Kiselevich and past Reimer. Paul Kariya holds the team record of eight seconds, set March 9. 1997, at Colorado.Ekblad tied it at 3:01 of the second. Aleksander Barkov passed from behind the net out to Ekblad in the right circle and Ekblad one-timed the puck past Gibson.NOTES: Panthers D Keith Yandle played his 738th straight game to take sole possession of sixth place on the consecutive games list. Yandle last missed a game March 22, 2009 when he was with the Coyotes. … Boughner said goalie Roberto Luongo, out with a knee injury since Friday, might return to the lineup on Friday or Saturday.UP NEXT:Ducks: At Carolina on Friday night.Panthers: Host Buffalo on Friday night. BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Upon passing a physical and signing his three-year NHL contract, Casey Mittelstadt’s first order of business as a member of the Buffalo Sabres proved to be a perk on Tuesday.The 19-year-old was invited out for lunch with Sabres star Jack Eichel.”It’s definitely something pretty cool for a kid like me Custom Minnesota Wild Jerseys ,” Mittelstadt said. ”It’s good to know he’s excited I’m here and he’s interested in getting to know me.”If the 21-year-old Eichel is the undisputed face of the Sabres, Mittelstadt is being counted upon to be a valuable addition in the struggling franchise’s bid to rebuild with youth. He was selected with the No. 8 pick in the draft last year, and signed with Buffalo a little more than a week after the playmaking center completed his freshman season at the University of Minnesota.Mittelstadt is scheduled to join the Sabres for practice on Wednesday and expected to make his NHL debut the following day, when Buffalo hosts the Detroit Red Wings in a game between two teams already eliminated from playoff contention.The Sabres have six games left, and are in jeopardy of finishing last in the overall standings for the third time in five years.Mittelstadt was mostly unfamiliar with the Sabres’ past woes while growing up a Wild fan in Eden Prairie, Minnesota.Over the past year, he’s become more familiar with the focus being placed on the team’s youngsters to restore winning to a team that’s not made the playoffs in seven years.”I think I can feel the struggle a little bit,” Mittelstadt said. ”And obviously www.officialcanadiensprostore.com , there’s a big emphasis being put on the young guys to turn it around here.”Mittelstadt had 11 goals and 19 assists in 34 games and was selected to the Big Ten all-freshmen team this year.The Golden Gophers’ season ended last week, when they were on the wrong end of numerous scenarios in being eliminated from competing in the NCAA Tournament.Mittelstadt took a few days to weigh his options before electing to turn pro last weekend. He said Minnesota coach Don Lucia’s decision to step down after 19 seasons had little influence on his decision.”I wanted to make sure the decision I came to that I’m both feet in,” he said. ”And it came up over and over again that both my feet were into go pro.”Buffalo has become a familiar setting for Mittelstadt. He attended the NHL pre-draft rookie combine in the city last spring.He made yet a bigger splash in representing the bronze-medal-winning United States team at the World Junior hockey championship, which was held in Buffalo three months ago. Mittelstadt was selected as the 10-nation tournament’s MVP after finishing tied for first in scoring with 11 points (four goals, seven assists).The inkling of one day playing for the Sabres in the same arena briefly crossed Mittelstadt’s mind during the world juniors, though he was more focused on representing the U.S. and returning to Minnesota.”Obviously, things didn’t turn out the way we wanted them to this year,” Mittelstadt said of the Gophers’ season ending.”But when the time came and I had some time to sit down and think and talk with my family Montreal Canadiens T-Shirts Authentic , I think this was the right decision.”By adding Mittelstadt, the Sabres demoted forward Justin Bailey to Rochester.—
