SUNRISE, Fla. Ryan Kesler Jersey . - The New York Islanders blew a late lead, yet still managed to pull out their fifth straight win.Kyle Okposo scored the deciding goal in the shootout, and the Islanders outlasted the Florida Panthers 4-3 on Friday night.Nikolay Kulemin, Ryan Strome and John Tavares had goals in regulation for New York, and Jaroslav Halak stopped 35 shots. Frans Nielsen also scored in the shootout.Having the lead in the third period, leading 3-1, you want to finish the game, Halak said. We gave them hope to come back, and unfortunately for us they did.We found a way and stuck to the game plan.Aaron Ekblad, Jimmy Hayes and Brian Campbell scored for Florida, and Vincent Trocheck had two assists. Roberto Luongo made 30 saves.Jonathan Huberdeau scored the only goal in the shootout for Florida.It was a huge comeback for us, but Ive got to find a way to make some saves in the shootout, Luongo said. Its not acceptable for me to let in two.Leading 3-1, the Islanders seemed to be cruising to victory midway through the third period but the Panthers scored twice in the final 10 minutes to tie it.Florida closed to 3-2 on Campbells power-play goal at 9:58. Campbells shot went over Halaks left shoulder for his first of the season and first in 28 games.Ive been in a struggle, Campbell said. Its nice to feel Im starting to escape the last couple games and play the way Im capable of.The Panthers tied it with 2:35 left as Ekblads slap shot from just inside the blue line got past a screened Halak.For whatever reason, we stopped moving our feet, and it was just a lack of discipline, and it led to penalties, Islanders coach Jack Capuano said. Its the first time weve done it all year, really. Weve got to learn from it.The Islanders seemed to put the game away earlier in the third when they stretched their lead to 3-1 at 3:57. Johnny Boychuks shot bounced off Luongos chest, and the goalie couldnt get a grip on the loose puck. It went under his pads, and Kulemin swept it in.The Islanders had trailed 1-0 but scored twice in 1:59 to take the lead.They got even at 13:09 of the second when Okposo passed the puck to Tavares in the right circle for a wrist shot that beat Luongo on the glove side.New York went ahead on Stromes breakaway goal. Strome took a nice pass from Thomas Hickey near the red line and came in alone. He put a wrist shot past Luongo with 4:52 left in the second.We just want to keep it going, Islanders forward Josh Bailey said. Its a long year, and when you get on a bit of a roll, you want to ride the wave as long as you can.An odd play came with three minutes left in the second. Floridas Aleksander Barkov shot the puck that Halak trapped between the back of his head and the crossbar. A video review confirmed that a goal wasnt scored.Hayes goal at 12:37 of the first was his third in three games and gave the Panthers a 1-0 lead.Trocheck made a behind-the-back pass from in back of the net to Hayes in front, and his shot got by Halak. The goal ended the Islanders shutout streak at 193 minutes, 48 seconds, the second longest in team history.The longest Islanders streak was 199:24, set in 1998.NOTES: Halak is 9-1 in 10 games against Florida and has won five in a row against the Panthers. ... Bailey returned after missing eight games with a hand injury. ... Luongo is now fifth on the NHL career list in saves. ... Panthers LW Sean Bergenheim missed his sixth game because of a lower-body injury. Nick Ritchie Jersey . Dirk Nowitzki scored 25 points, Shawn Marion had 22 and the Mavericks beat undermanned Philadelphia 124-112 Friday night, handing the 76ers their 10th straight loss. Jaycob Megna Jersey . While hell be dialed in to that tournament on a course he loves, you can forgive him if his eyes glance down the calendar just a bit, towards April. http://www.officialduckshockeyauthentic.com/ryan-miller-jersey/ . -- Andy Granatelli, the former CEO of STP motor oil company who made a mark on motorsports as a car owner, innovator and entrepreneur, has died. LOS ANGELES -- Make no bones about it. Coach Mike DAntonis skeleton roster was no match for the opportunistic Charlotte Bobcats and Al Jeffersons dominating presence in the paint. Jefferson tied a career high with 40 points, 16 of them in the fourth quarter, and grabbed 18 rebounds to help the Bobcats send the floundering Los Angeles Lakers to their sixth straight defeat with a 110-100 victory Friday night. "I have those moments," Jefferson said. "They kept running plays for me and I kept scoring. In the first quarter, they werent going down for me, but I just kept staying with it because I knew sooner or later it would start going down for me. " Jefferson set a franchise record with his 11th straight game of 20 or more points, eclipsing the mark set by Jason Richardson in 2007-08. It was the 13th game this season in which an opposing player scored at least 30 against the Lakers, something that happened in 18 games last season -- and there are still 35 games remaining. Jefferson is averaging 19.9 points and 10.7 boards, but wasnt selected for the All-Star game and has yet to play in one in his 10 years in the league. "Ive been disappointed with the All-Star games, man, for many years. So I dont listen to the hype," Jefferson said. Gerald Henderson added 20 points for the Bobcats. Starting point guard Kemba Walker missed his sixth straight game since a sprained left ankle ended his career-opening consecutive game streak of 190. Ramon Sessions, who has started every game at the point during Walkers absence, had 13 assists and nine points. Sessions, along with starting power forward Josh McRoberts and reserve guard Jannero Pargo -- all former Lakers -- combined for 26 points and the Bobcats snapped a string of five straight defeats against Los Angeles. Charlotte shot 52.3 per cent from the field, improving to 5-0 when shooting at least 50 per cent. The victory was the Bobcats ninth on the road, four more than all of last season. Still missing Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Steve Blake, Jordan Farmar and Xavier Henry because of injuries, the Lakers lost for the 18th time in 21 games andd are only a half-game ahead of last-place Sacramento in the Western Conference standings just four seasons after winning their 16th NBA title. Josh Manson Jersey. Pau Gasol had 24 points for Los Angeles and Nick Young added 21 off the bench. The Lakers have given up 100 or more points in 14 consecutive games, matching the clubs longest such streak since a 17-game stretch in 1986-87. Trailing by as many as 20 points after a pair of free throws by Jefferson with 4:21 left in the third quarter, the Lakers sliced the margin to 86-73 on a four-point play by Ryan Kelly. Los Angeles got it down to 86-78 on a layup by Robert Sacre with 11:01 to play, but that was as close as the Lakers got. Jefferson scored the Bobcats first eight points of the final quarter to help keep the Lakers at bay. "Hes been doing this to a lot of people," DAntoni said. "We tried a little bit of everything. We dug. We tried to play him a little bit straight up, at first. We tried to double-team him." Jefferson, who signed a three-year, $41 million contract with the Bobcats in July, powered them to a 62-49 halftime lead with 18 points and eight rebounds. Charlotte shot 58 per cent in the half, and never trailed after Jeffersons finger roll gave the Bobcats a 26-25 lead with 1:37 left in the first quarter. In the other meeting this season, the Lakers beat the Bobcats 88-85 at Charlotte with a game-ending 13-4 run and 21 points by Kobe Bryant -- one of only six games the NBAs fourth leading scorer has played in this season because of a torn Achilles tendon and a fracture in his left knee. Jefferson was held to 14 points that night. NOTES: The game ball was being sent to New York to mark the final day of NBA Commissioner David Sterns tenure. He is retiring Saturday on the 30th anniversary of his first day on the job. ... Stern saw the Lakers win eight league championships, make 12 trips to the finals and record eight 60-win seasons during his reign. ... Stern presented the Lakers with their championship rings on seven occasions. The only exception was in October 2001, following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
