SUNRISE, Fla., Dec. 31 (UPI) -- Dan Girardi netted a goal late in regulation and Brad Richards supplied a shootout game-winner Monday, rallying the New York Rangers over Florida 2-1.

The Rangers were trailing 1-0 with 2:10 left in the third period when they got the puck on a turnover deep in the Panthers zone.

Derek Stepan sent a pass to the right circle, where Girardi sent a score-tying shot past the glove of Tim Thomas.

After Thomas made several sparkling stops in the scoreless overtime, Richards beat him in the third round of the shootout with a shot to the inside post.

Henrik Lundqvist turned aside three Panthers shooters in the tiebreaker and made 21 stops in regulation as New York won a fourth in five games.

Brad Boyes scored and Thomas finished with 29 saves for Florida, which dropped a fourth in five contests.
