The goal came shortly after Goodrow won a defensive zone face-off. Rangers, ny rangers, panthers vs rangers


"I don't really remember exactly how it went in," Goodrow said. "I just remember Trocheck made a great pass to me and [Will Cuylle] was driving to the net, opening up the lane so it was a great play by those two … It feels good, I think, whenever you can do something to help your team. Obviously, I think we played a pretty good game tonight, and it was nice to get rewarded with the win."

The goal came shortly after Goodrow won a defensive zone face-off.

"Everybody knows what he brings to the team," Trocheck said of Goodrow. "Every night, he's going to bring the same game. We use him in all different situations. ... In these playoffs, he's been outstanding for us on both ends of the ice."

The best-of-7 series is tied 1-1. Game 3 will be in Sunrise, Florida, on Sunday (3 p.m. ET; ABC, ESPN+, SN, TVAS, CBC).

Trocheck had a goal and an assist, and Igor Shesterkin made 26 saves for the Rangers, the No. 1 seed in the Metropolitan Division. New York is 3-0 in overtime this postseason.

"In overtime, you're just looking for that one," Rangers defenseman Adam Fox said. "... You know how big of a goal it is to make the series 1-1 rather than 2-0. It's massive and you're excited to see that one go in."

Carter Verhaeghe scored, and Bobrovsky made 28 saves for the Panthers, the No. 1 seed in the Atlantic Division. Florida had won four straight road playoff games.

"Obviously it's tough to lose in overtime, but at the end of the day 1-1 in their building," Panthers defenseman Aaron Ekblad said. "They came out really, really explosive tonight and that's what we expected. We lost a really tight game. We'll move on. We have a quick turnaround."

Trocheck gave the Rangers a 1-0 lead at 4:12 of the first period with a tap-in at the side of the net off a pass from Fox. It was New York's first goal of the series after being shut out 3-0 in Game 1.

"It got the building going, that was big" Rangers captain Jacob Trouba said. "Obviously a huge start. We wanted to get the first goal. They battled back and it was a tight game, and that's what we're going to expect every game in the series."

Verhaeghe tied it 1-1 at 18:09 of the first with a power-play goal from the slot.

"They got one (goal), but it was a good response," Verhaeghe said. "To go into the second tied, the game was there [but] they came out on top. ... I think that's what happens when you get the two best teams in the conference. ... It's going to be a battle."

Despite allowing a power-play goal and going 0-for-4 with the man-advantage, the Rangers found a way to win.
