Garrison, Panthers edge Rangers

Can you name the defenseman who leads the NHL in goals? Not many people would guess Jason Garrison.

The Florida rearguard potted his eighth of the season and the Southeast Division-leading Panthers edged the New York Rangers, 2-1, at BankAtlantic Center.

Kris Versteeg also lit the lamp for the Panthers, who got 19 saves from Jose Theodore.

Florida has won three straight games -- all at home, all by one goal and all in regulation.

Derek Stepan had the lone Ranger tally, while Henrik Lundqvist was stellar in defeat, finishing with 36 saves.

New York has dropped two straight on the heels of a seven-game win streak.
