USA Today Sports 1 month ago

Artemi Panarin scored twice to lead the New York Rangers to a 3-1 preseason win over the rival Islanders on Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden.

Panarin, the Rangers' big free-agent addition this summer, played with both linemates Mika Zibanejad and Pavel Buchnevich for the first time. Buchnevich had an assist on Panarin's first goal, and Zibanejad assisted on his empty-netter with 16 seconds left.

Vitali Kravtsov also scored for Rangers. Henrik Lundqvist started and stopped all 13 shots he faced, and Alexandar Georgiev had 16 saves on 17 shots.

Jordan Eberle got his fourth goal of the preseason in the third period for the Islanders. Thomas Greiss stopped 27 shots.

Kravtsov, the ninth overall pick in the 2018 NHL draft, opened the scoring at 2:07 of the second period, and Panarin made it 2-0 at 8:43.

BARKOV LEADS PANTHERS PAST LIGHTNING

In Sunrise, Florida, Aleksander Barkov had two goals and an assist to help the Florida Panthers beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 6-3.

Jonathan Huberdeau, Dominic Toninato, Denis Malgin and Frank Vatrano also scored for Florida. Sergei Bobrovsky started and stopped 12 of 14 shots in his half of the game, and Chris Driedger finished with seven saves.

Alexander Volkov, Anthony Cirelli and Mikhail Sergachev scored for Tampa Bay, and Andrei Vasilevskiy gave up all six goals on 24 shots.
