SUNRISE, Fla. -- As the game went on, Dan Girardis mistake became magnified. Luckily for Girardi and the New York Rangers, the defenceman redeemed himself in a big way. After a giveaway by Girardi in the second period resulted in a goal for the Florida Panthers, Girardi tied it late in regulation to send the game to overtime. Brad Richards then netted the lone goal in the shootout to give the Rangers a 2-1 victory on Tuesday night. "It felt pretty good," Girardi said. "Its kind of disappointing when one bad play can kind of ruin a game for the team and yourself, so Im glad I could put one in there and kind of redeem myself a little bit." In the shootout, Richards beat Tim Thomas with a wrist shot to the top left corner after Thomas stopped the first two New York attempts. "Thats a great move from a great player," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. Henrik Lundqvist made a save against Brad Boyes to seal the Rangers victory. "I corrected my thinking a little bit in the way I approached (the shootout)," Lundqvist said. "I slowed down a little bit and I had more control." Girardi scored with 2:10 left in regulation with a wrist shot from the left circle to beat Thomas after Derek Stepan found Girardi with a pass as he broke in from the blue line. The goal prevented Thomas from earning his first NHL shutout in nearly two years. "It was one of those nights where if I could see it I could save it," Thomas said. "I thought we were going to hang on until the end there, but thats hockey." Thomas maintained his composure and came up with four saves in overtime, including one from close range by Rangers defenceman Ryan McDonagh. Thomas made 30 saves through overtime, and Lundqvist stopped 21 shots in the third and final meeting between the teams this season. "It was a really hard-fought game by both teams," Vigneault said. "There wasnt a lot of room out there." Florida broke through in the second period on Boyes 10th goal of the season. Girardi retrieved a loose puck, and his pass attempt from behind the net was intercepted by Aleksander Barkov, who quickly fed the puck to Boyes in front. Boyes beat Lundqvist with a backhander between his pads. Lundqvist was able to keep it a 1-0 deficit despite a 4-minute penalty to Richards midway through the third period when he high-sticked Nick Bjugstad in the face. "I definitely feel like wed like our special teams to be better," Panthers coach Peter Horachek said. New York went 0 for 3 on the power play after scoring three power-play goals on three chances Sunday in a 4-3 win at Tampa Bay. The Rangers came in with at least one power-play goal in five of their last six games. "We had some grade-A scoring opportunities," Vigneault said. "The only thing we didnt do was put it past their goaltender, who obviously was on top of his game." Rangers defenceman Marc Staal made his return after missing 10 games because of a concussion sustained on Dec. 7 against New Jersey. He played nearly 24 minutes, the third-highest total on the team. "I felt pretty good," Staal said. "I think anytime youre out for that long you just want to feel the puck and make the plays you normally make. For the most part I felt I did that. It was a good start." It was the midway point of the season for both teams. The Rangers improved to 20-19-2. "Were one game above .500. We need to get better," Vigneault said. The Panthers dropped to 15-20-6. "We just need to keep this thing going, getting points and climb in the standings," Boyes said. "Weve got to get better. If we keep doing what were doing, the good things will happen." NOTES: New York won the first two meetings, outscoring the Panthers 9-5. ... The Rangers are 3-1 in shootouts, Florida is 4-5. ...

Before that, Rousey needed a total 23 minutes and 26 seconds to take care of her last eight opponents - and one of those fights lasted 10 minutes and 58 seconds. So, who is the next worthy contender to take a shot at dethroning the first and only UFC womens bantamweight champion. There are a few names that have floated around as possible opponents but nothing is set in stone. Lets take a closer look at the potential combatants: Cat Zingano The No. 1 contender for the womens title is likely the best female fighter in the UFC not named Rousey. The Broomfield, Colorado native has a perfect 8-0 record with her one fight with the organization being her biggest, a third-round TKO over division stalwart Miesha Tate at "The Ultimate Fighter 17" finale on April 13, 2013. Zingano was scheduled to appear as a coach opposite Rousey on the 18th edition of the reality show and later fight for the womens title at the shows culminating event, but she was forced to withdraw with a knee injury. She underwent stem cell therapy on her left knee last October and has been sidelined since. When she is ready to return UFC president Dana White says Zingano will be the No. 1 contender. Gina Carano These days the public is likely to know Carano more for her starring roles in action films "Haywire" and "Fast and Furious 6" than for her mixed martial arts past, but there was a time when Carano was untouchable. Carano (7-1) spent two years undefeated before a loss in 2009 at the hands of Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos for the Strikeforce womens featherweight championship. She hasnt fought since, however, her contract with four fights remaining on it was absorbed by the UFC when parent company Zuffa, LLC purchased Strikeforce in 2011. In an appearance last week on "The Arsenio Hall Show," Carano said she was meeting with White this week to discuss a potential return. "Theres not a workout that I go through that Im not fighting somebody in my mind," said Carano. "And its never gone away." Holly Holm Holm is the newest name in the hat for a shot at Rousey and her credentials give her every right to be there. She is a former 18-time boxing champion and Legacys first womens bantamweight champion. Holm (7-0 in MMA) captured the inaugural title in decisive fashion on Friday, defeating Juliana Werner via fifth-round TKO at Legacy 30 despite breaking her arm in the first round.dddddddddddd Holms management met with the UFC in March, but White told UFC Tonights Ariel Helwani the meeting did not go well and the he was "not interested whatsoever" in the fighters service. If Holm does find a way into Whites good books, it could lead straight to Rousey. Cristiane Justino "Cyborg" is coming off a loss in a Muay Thai fight against champion Jorina Baars in March, but her dominant history puts her near the top of the list for a superfight with Rousey. She is the former Strikeforce featherweight champion and inaugural Invicta FC featherweight champion. She is also a two-time jiu-jitsu world champion. Justino also fears no one. This we are sure. After Rouseys win over McMann at UFC 170, Justino (12-1, 1 NC in MMA) was quick to request a meeting in the octagon with the undefeated champ. "Im glad @rondarousey won- now I can kick her ass in December - make it happen daddy @danawhite," she posted on her Twitter account on Feb. 23. It would likely be the biggest fight in womens MMA history, however, White and Justinos camp have never seen eye to eye. White certainly didnt mince words a few days after UFC 170 and Justinos tweet. "First of all, she does not fight here. Everybody realizes that, right? See weighs 145 pounds and her genius manager, Tito Ortiz, said that she would die if she went to 135 pounds," White told U.K. television station BT Sports. "Shes also coming off a steroid suspension last time she was here. I cant even, it drives me nuts. She [Rousey] will not fight Cyborg. I dont know who shes going to fight." Alexis Davis (Honourable mention) One of the more seasoned fighters in the division, the Canadian has won five fights in a row and all three of her bouts in the UFC. While she is not a favourite to challenge for the belt just yet, Davis (16-5) has forced her way into the conversation with her most recent wins coming over Jessica Eye and former title contender Liz Carmouche. Injuries and contract disputes aside, each of these fighters has an argument when it comes to Rouseys next title defence. If all of these women could agree to a fight tomorrow, who should be the one to step inside the octagon? As always, its Your! Call ' ' '
