(SportsNetwork. Mark Trumbo Jersey .com) - The Florida Panthers are getting points as they struggle to score goals. The Panthers put a five-game point streak on the line Saturday night as they play host to the Philadelphia Flyers. Florida followed up a 2-0-2 road trip with a 2-1 victory over the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday. That win came five days after the Panthers capped the trip with a overtime loss to the Coyotes and put the club at 3-2-3 on the season. Brandon Pirri scored in a third straight game and Scottie Upshall recorded the winning goal with 9:04 remaining in regulation. Upshall scored just after he finished serving a penalty for charging, moving in on goal following a pass from Tomas Kopecky before putting a back-hand shot into the net. Ill take a penalty like that if the (penalty kill) stands up like it did and I get one out of the box, Upshall said. It was a big goal for us. Roberto Luongo made 32 saves and has posted a 2.32 goals against average with a .926 save percentage in seven starts this season. Luongos play is a key reason that the Panthers have secured as many points as they have despite having scored two goals or fewer in seven of their eight games. The lone exception was a 4-3 overtime win at Colorado on Oct. 21. Floridas scoring depth took a hit in Thursdays win as center Aleksander Barkov left the game with a lower-body injury and is day-to-day. The Flyers, meanwhile, have been held to fewer than three goals just twice in 10 games and forward Jakub Voracek is tied for the league lead with 15 points while pacing all NHL skaters with 12 assists. Pittsburghs Sidney Crosby and Dallas Tyler Seguin also have 15 points this season. Voracek had a goal and an assist in Thursdays 4-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning as Philadelphia had a three-game winning streak snapped. Wayne Simmonds and Michael Raffl added a goal each and Claude Giroux had two assists to give him 11 on the year. Obviously its a tough loss, but I think the game overall was better than the result, said Voracek, who has four straight multi-point games, the first Flyer to do so since Simon Gagne had five in a row from Feb. 8-17, 2007. Ray Emery, who had been in net for each game of the recent winning streak, took the loss despite making 28 saves. Steve Mason expects to start tonight looking for his first win of the season. Philadelphia announced after Thursdays loss the signing of free agent defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo. He practiced on Friday, but is not expected to debut in this game. Colaiacovo has 401 games of NHL experience, but appeared in just 25 games with St. Louis last season and six with Detroit the campaign before. Philadelphia, though, will get forward Vinny Lecavalier back from a left ankle injury that has caused him to miss the last seven games. He has a goal and three points in three games this season after notching 37 points in 69 games in 2013-14. The Flyers have won eight of their past 12 versus the Panthers, including six of the last seven in Sunrise. Jonathan Schoop Jersey . Consider it received. Attacking on offence early and often, the Penguins topped the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-1 on Saturday night as Jussi Jokinen scored the go-ahead goal in the third period to help give Pittsburgh a 3-2 lead in the Eastern Conference playoff series. Kevin Gausman Jersey . -- Quarterback Josh Johnson has returned to the San Francisco 49ers and his former college coach, Jim Harbaugh. http://www.oriolesapparelsshop.com/frank-robinson-jersey-c-22/ . And Richard Bachman, their rookie goalie, is facing a penalty shot a few seconds after the opening face-off. No pressure, right? Bachman stood his ground against Zack Kassian and saw the puck dribble off the Canuck rookies stick, then settled in and backstopped the Stars to a 5-2 win over Vancouver Tuesday that put Dallas in first place in the Pacific Division.TORONTO - Jays closer Casey Janssen has had the better of Derek Jeter 16 times out of their 17 head-to-head encounters.But ask Janssen about the New York Yankees captain and, after a string of compliments, he goes straight to the one time Jeter got the best of him.He hit a home run off me and I blew a save because of it, Janssen recalled with a grimace.Even when someone has his number, Jeter — who has hit .059 against Janssen — leaves an impression.Toronto fans will get one last look at the 40-year-old shortstop when Jeters farewell tour rolls into the Rogers Centre on Friday.His career speaks for himself but hes one of those guys who seemed to do everything right, said Jays manager John Gibbons.And he was a guy that always seemed to rise to the occasion when they needed something, he added. He anchored their great teams. He showed up to play every day.Like other clubs, the Jays will be showing their appreciation for the future Hall of Famer with a gift.The Detroit Tigers presented him with two seats from the original Tiger Stadium and three framed paintings. Cleveland offered up a pinstriped Gibson Les Paul guitar and a framed piece of artwork of Jeter made out of LEGO bricks.The Kansas City Royals donated US$10,000 to his Turn 2 Foundation.

On March 31, 2003, he dislocated a shoulder sliding into third after a violent collision with catcher Ken Huckaby. In typical Jeter fashion, he was hustling to take third on a comebacker to the mound. Jeter was out six weeks and Huckaby became Public Enemy No. 1 in New York.Todays Jays talk of Jeter with respect and admiration, both for his play on the field and the way he conducts himself off it — especially under the bright lights of the Big Apple.A true ambassador of the game, said right-fielder Jose Bautista, the leader in the Jays clubhouse.

Every player, every manager, everybody in the game. That doesnt happen a lot. ... Hes a winner, hes a leader. Growing up, he was the guy you watched and you love to watch play.Said Rasmus: He was able to find that lightning on the bottle and he was able to hold onto for a long time ...I tip my cap to him.
