NEW YORK -- Henrik Lundqvist came up big when the New York Rangers needed him and got a key milestone win.Kevin Hayes scored the deciding goal in the shootout and Henrik Lundqvist stopped 29 shots through overtime and three more in the tiebreaker to help the Rangers beat the new Jersey Devils 3-2 Sunday night.Lundqvist stopped Damon Severson in the fourth round of the shootout to secure the Rangers sixth win in seven games and second against the Devils at home in eight days. It also gave Lundqvist his 389th career win, tying him with Dominik Hasek for the most by a European-born goaltender.He was an inspiration to me growing up, Lundqvist said about the feat. He was the first guy I saw play paddle down. I grew up watching him, so this special for sure.Lundqvist has been stellar since serving as the backup to Antti Raanta, who started four straight games from Dec. 8-13. In three games since, Lundqvist is 3-0-0 with a 0.98 goals against average and a .967 save percentage. He also made several big stops on Sunday, which included two saves on New Jersey breakaways, to fend off the Devils.Hank is such a competitor. He works so hard, Rangers center Derek Stepan said. Hes an absolute workhorse -- a great teammate. And I expected nothing less from him.New York coach Alain Vigneault isnt surprised by Lundqvists recent play.This is the start of my fourth year. As soon as I got here, I knew his preparation and his work ethic in practice, Vigneault said. Thats why he was one of the best goaltenders in the league at that time, and he continues to be. He just works at his game, hes really focused, and hes a great person.Mats Zuccarello also scored in the shootout, and Chris Kreider and Derek Stepan had goals in regulation.PA Parenteau and Miles Wood scored and Cory Schneider stopped 24 shots as the Devils lost their sixth straight. Michael Cammalleri had a shootout goal.Things are going to happen in hockey games, Cammalleri said. We arent hiding from the fact that were on a losing streak and we have to get out of it.Parenteau broke a scoreless tie early in the second with his seventh goal of the season and the Devils on the power play. Parenteau pushed a loose puck underneath Lundqvist and off the post, but the Rangers goalie inadvertently hit the puck into the net as he tried to cover it up.The Rangers upped the pressure in the third and after several chances that were stopped by Schneider. New York finally found the back of the net as Mats Zuccarello quickly swung the puck from behind the net to Kreider, who tapped the puck in to even the score at 8:10.The Devils quickly responded to recapture the lead with 9:28 left in the third. Adam Henrique forced Dan Girardi to turn over the puck behind the Rangers net, fought off two Rangers players and sent the puck to Wood, who got a quick shot off in front of the net to give the Devils the 2-1 lead.However the Rangers kept pressing and tied it with 1:13 left in regulation as Stepan redirected the puck past Schneider.Its not the result we wanted so thats a little frustrating and disappointing, Schneider said. I thought our defending was good here against a really offensive team, but again at the end of the day its the two points that matter.Sunday was the final time the Devils will play at Madison Square Garden this season and the loss extended their struggles away from Prudential Center.

ATLANTA -- Georgia State has turned to South Carolina assistant Shawn Elliott to energize a program that hasnt had a winning season since moving up to college footballs top division.Elliott was introduced Friday at a news conference on Georgia States downtown campus.He coached the offensive line and served as co-offensive coordinator for the Gamecocks, where he worked the last seven years under Steve Spurrier and current head coach Will Muschamp.Elliott also served as South Carolinas interim head coach in 2015, going 1-5 after Spurrier retired midway through the season.Were going to bring effort and enthusiasm, and were going to attack every single day as if its our last, he said. I know thats easy to say, but its the truth. People talk about vision, vision, vision; I talk about now and what we need to be doing right now.The hiring comes at a critical time for Georgia States program, which has struggled to make its mark on the crowded Atlanta sports scene.The Panthers are moving to Turner Field next season, taking over the stadium that served as the Braves baseball home the last 20 years. Georgia State plans to downsize it into a 23,000-seat football stadium, providing a much more intimate atmosphere that the 70,000-seat Georgia Dome.But the Panthers have rarely drawn even 10,000 to a game since launching their program in 2010. After going 6-5 as an FCS school in their debut season, they have not had a winning record since.Georgia State is 10-39 since joining the Sun Belt Conference in 2013.ddddddddddddElliott said the move to Turner Field is a huge step.The future is bright at Georgia State University and that stadium were about to move into, Elliott said.Athletic director Charlie Cobb said he wanted a coach that would bolster recruiting in Atlanta and throughout the state of Georgia. Given its lack of success, the AD also wanted someone who would bring positive energy to our football program.Before his tenure with the Gemecocks, Elliott served 13 seasons as an assistant coach at Appalachian State, his alma mater. A native of Camden, South Carolina, he was an integral part of three consecutive NCAA FCS titles from 2005-07 as well as the Mountaineers historic upset at Michigan in 2007.Cobb is a former athletic director at Appalachian State.Im fortunate that our paths crossed 11 years ago at App State, Cobb said. It didnt take long for me to be impressed with his coaching style, his maturity, and his love for competition, especially in the game of football.Elliott replaces Trent Miles, who was fired with two games to go in his fourth season. Miles had a record of 9-38 with the Panthers, though he did lead them to their first bowl appearance in 2015. Tim Lappano served as interim coach the final two games.---For more AP college football coverage: www.collegefootball.ap.org Cheap Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China Nike NFL Jerseys China Discount NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale China NFL Gear Stitched Jerseys Discount Jerseys Cheap NFL T-shirts Cheap Jerseys 2019 Black China NFL Jerseys Discount NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2020 ' ' '
