DETROIT -- The Florida Panthers got better as the game went on and kept the Red Wings struggling at home. Dwyane Wade Jersey . Jonathan Huberdeaus goal early in the third period broke a tie and Florida beat the Detroit Red Wings 2-1 on Saturday night. The Panthers trailed 1-0 after the first period but outshot the Red Wings 28-14 in the final two periods. "When the other team scores the first goal, we usually struggle, kind of back on our heels," Huberdeau said. "But we were able to get the tying goal." Jimmy Hayes also scored for Florida. Shawn Matthias had two assists and Tim Thomas stopped 22 shots. "This is one of the toughest buildings to play in. We wanted to play with energy. They had to play last night (a 3-1 win in New Jersey)," Panthers coach Peter Horachek said. " ... We just wanted to work both ends of the rink." Daniel Cleary scored for Detroit, which is only 5-6-6 at home. "I thought it was lack of energy for sure. You try to fight through it the best you possibly can," Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. "We had a game last night, they sat in our building, hung out and waited for us. Theres no excuse for anything, you got to find ways to win games. " Backup goalie Jonas Gustavsson, making his second consecutive start, made 35 saves. It was Gustavssons first regulation loss of the season (8-1-1). "Its always a little bit tougher to play that back to back, you got to be smart, save your legs and all that. We played a team that played good tonight, made it tough for us," Gustavsson said. "I felt like they were skating and forechecked us pretty good. At the end of the day we probably could have gotten a bounce and scored that second goal. You never know. We just got to bounce back from this and have a good next game." Huberdeau gave Florida the lead at 3:29 of the third period. Left wide open in front of Gustavsson, Huberdeau put in a backhand shot after making a move for his seventh goal. Hayes tied it at 1 at 2:59 of the second period with his third goal of the season. Gustavsson appeared to have a shot by Matthias smothered. But the puck dropped under one of Gustavssons pads and Hayes poked it in for his second goal in two games. The Panthers outshot the Red Wings 17-5 in the second period. "Our game plan was just to play hard and we refocused during the game," Hayes said. Niklas Kronwall talked about what happened to Detroit after the first. "We stopped skating. I dont think it has anything to do with the energy. I dont know what it is," he said. "We have to be a lot more desperate and determined than that. We stopped skating and started watching hockey instead of playing." Cleary opened the scoring 4:06 into the game with his first goal in 24 games. He put in the rebound of Justin Abdelkaders shot for Clearys second goal of the season. NOTES: Detroit C Stephen Weiss played his first game against his former team. Weiss signed a five-year, $25 million free agent contract with the Red Wings in July. ... Detroit remained without both C Pavel Datsyuk (concussion) and captain Henrik Zetterberg (herniated disc). The team said that Datsyuk will return on Tuesday when the two teams play in Florida. ... Panthers goalie Tim Thomas is from Flint, Mich., which is about 60 miles north of Detroit. ... The Red Wings were also without C Darren Helm, who missed his second game with a shoulder injury. Wayne Ellington Jersey . This week they discuss Russias mens hockey team, the ineptitude of the IOC handling the Nicklas Backstrom situation, John Tortorellas many apologies, and Canadas strong showing in curling. Edrice Adebayo Jersey . Roma has a game in hand but now second place is even at risk for the capital side as Napoli moved to within three points with the win. "The result is not always fair," Roma coach Rudi Garcia said. "If we play like this until the end we will win many matches. http://www.heatteamofficial.com/glen-rice-heat-jersey/ . -- The Denver Broncos retired John Elways No.TORONTO - As rumours surrounding the future of Kyle Lowry - this summers biggest free-agent prize at his position - begin to swirl, the most reasonable question that comes to mind is, what took so long? The Raptors breakout point guard has been the subject of recent speculation, originating at ESPN, connecting him to the four-time defending Eastern Conference champion Miami Heat. The parties are said to have "mutual interest". Often, where theres smoke theres fire, but thats not always the case in the NBA, especially not at this time of the year. Smoke, in this case, comes with the territory. Fresh off a career season, leading the Raptors to an unexpected division title, Lowry is poised to become a coveted commodity in unrestricted free agency when he officially hits the open market on July 1. If the Heat are the first team to come knocking, they assuredly wont be the last. Why wouldnt Miami be interested in Lowrys services? The Heat are less than a week removed from a disheartening trip to the NBA Finals, where they looked vastly inferior to the San Antonio Spurs in a five-game elimination. Their current point guard, Mario Chalmers - also a soon-to-be free agent - was notably ineffective en route to losing his starting job late in the series. And Lowry? Why wouldnt he want to play in South Beach? Under the right circumstances, accompanied by a suitable contract, you would be hard-pressed to find someone unwilling to play in one of the leagues most desirable destinations with LeBron James, the best basketball player on the planet. Therein lies the caveat, and its a big one; money. The Heat, under their current construction, can only offer so much of it. Firstly, in order for Miami to put together a passable offer to Lowry or any other prominent free agent, James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh would need to opt out of their contracts - owing them each more than $20 million over the next two season - to renegotiate smaller deals. Udonis Haslem would likely have to do the same. Lowry, underpaid for most of his eight-year career, has been one of the leagues bargain players, earning just over $6 million last season. At best, Miami - or any other capped out team - may be able to offer something in that neighbourhood. From a Raptors perspective, nothing has changed since Masai Ujiri addressed the point guards future six weeks ago, making Lowry the teams top offseason priority. "Its very important for us, in terms of continuity," said the Raptors general manager that afternoon, asked abbout the likelihood of re-signing Lowry. Miami Heat Jerseys. "For me, negotiating is easy if we want Kyle to be here and Kyle wants to be here." "I think well be fair with Kyle and well figure it out and I think its important. So well go through that process but were optimistic stuff will happen." They remain confident to this day and much of that stems from the fact that they can offer Lowry more than any other team, while also providing him the platform to lead a winning team with a cast that hes comfortable with. The 28-year-old is staring down his first super-sized NBA contract and in a league where so much can change in three-to-four years, there are no guarantees that another one will follow. Certainly, if hes willing to sacrifice in exchange for a better chance at competing for a championship hell have that opportunity but for a player entering his prime, one with a young family to support, it would be surprising to see him leave that much money on the table. With the Raptors he could double the size of his most recent contract, a four-year $23 million deal signed back in 2010. As you might expect, Lowry and his representatives will test the market, see whats out there and leverage the interest hes sure to get from other teams. As he wisely pointed out during a midseason wave of rumours following the trade of his best friend Rudy Gay, its a business. The Raptors will also have a big decision to make, holding the 20th pick in next weeks draft, five days before teams are able to sit down and meet with their free agent point guard. Would they select a lead guard as insurance? "I think the biggest thing is to not make draft decisions based on that, on your current roster and your current situations," Dan Tolzman, the Raptors director of scouting, said last week. "You keep it in the back of your head and youll take it into account when youre drafting players but if the most talented guy or the highest guy on your list happens to be a position that your loaded up with you can work stuff out later." "So I dont think you really approach the draft like, okay we need a point guard because we dont know what the situation is. But at the same time if the best player on the board is a point guard, well figure it out." And so it begins. For four months, primarily in the next two, the game shifts from the court to the boardroom, podium and social media sphere. The sound of sneakers squeaking and whistles whistling are replaced by rumours, bravado and conjecture. Buckle up.
