NEW YORK, N. [url=http://www.mavericksteamofficial.com/dennis-smith-jr-mavericks-jersey/]Dennis Smith Jr. Mavericks Jersey[/url] .Y. - Kevin Klein lost part of his ear in the first period, then found the back of the net in overtime to give the New York Rangers a stirring victory.Klein, known more for his defence, has discovered his offensive game this season. The defenceman has scored a career-best six goals and has a career-high three game-winners — including two in overtime.His latest was the difference in a 4-3 victory over Pittsburgh on Monday night after the Rangers squandered a late two-goal lead when the Penguins struck twice in 24 seconds.It might have hit their D-man in front. I was just trying to get it by, Klein said of his slap shot. When it went in, I was pretty happy.Kleins first goal of the season was also in overtime in a 4-3 win on Oct. 21 at New Jersey. He then netted the winner on Nov. 19 against Philadelphia.This one was even more dramatic because early in the game, Klein was bloodied by a high stick from Pittsburghs Zach Sill that ripped off part of his ear. That was reattached, and Klein resumed his role on the ice and scored for the second straight game.I am getting a lot of heat because Im not using him on the power play, Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said with a smile. That is the second time he has come up real big for us in overtime.Good for him. He lost a piece of his ear, and they sewed it back. Say what you want about hockey players, but they are tough.Rick Nash broke a second-period tie with his sixth goal in eight games, and Henrik Lundqvist returned to the net with 32 saves for New York.Nash and J.T. Miller scored in the middle period to turn a one-goal deficit into a lead, and Kevin Hayes made it 3-1 with 7:02 left in regulation. Lundqvist earned his third win in his past five appearances after sitting out New Yorks 3-2 loss at Detroit on Saturday.We needed it for a couple reasons, Lundqvist said. Obviously for confidence, but also we need points to get back in the race.New York, fourth in the Metropolitan Division and 11 points behind Pittsburgh, has four days off before starting a four-game trip at Vancouver on Saturday.Nick Spaling staked Pittsburgh to a 1-0 lead in the first period, and Evgeni Malkin and Steve Downie scored in rapid succession in the third. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 25 shots for the Penguins, who have dropped two of three overall and two of three to the Rangers this season.Malkin started the comeback with his 15th goal at 15:17, and Downie tied it with his fourth seconds later after the Rangers couldnt handle a bouncing puck in their end. Downie also assisted on Spalings goal.It wasnt easy, Penguins captain Sidney Crosby said. It was a good job by everyone to stick with it and get ourselves into overtime ... but its never fun losing.Sometimes you dont always get the result you want, but you have to be able to look in the mirror, and I think everyone did that.Pittsburgh wore its old-school, black-and-gold uniforms but fell to 9-2-2 on the road. New York has earned a point in eight of the last nine regular-season meetings with the Penguins (5-1-3).The Rangers finished the first period and started the second on the power play, thanks to Hills 4-minute high-sticking penalty that caused Kleins injury.New York didnt take advantage of that, but tallied the tying and go-ahead goals 4:50 apart to take a 2-1 lead.After Lundqvist made a save on a short-handed breakaway early in the second, the Rangers seemed to gain their legs and energy.Miller tied it 1-all off a feed from Martin St. Louis at 3:50 for his second of the season. Nash put New York in front at 8:40 with his 18th goal — the second-most in the NHL.Pittsburgh grabbed a 1-0 lead with 7:25 left in the first when Crosby set up Spaling with a cross-zone pass that was converted into a rising shot for Spalings fourth goal.Crosby has gone seven games without a goal and has just one in his last 10 games. However, he leads the NHL with 26 assists in 27 games.NOTES: Rangers LW Tanner Glass returned to the lineup after missing four games due to the mumps.

Josh Mazzola drove in five runs to lead the Goldeyes (20-12) past the Capitales 11-5 Friday night at Le Stade Municipal in Quebec City. CLEVELAND -- A trip to Progressive Field last month began a downward spiral for the Detroit Tigers. Their return visit could signal the start of a significant reversal. Max Scherzer pitched six strong innings, Miguel Cabrera homered and drove in three runs, and the Tigers beat the Cleveland Indians 10-4 on Sunday for a three-game sweep. The Tigers, swept in a three-game series at Cleveland in May, have won four in a row overall and reclaimed first place in the AL Central. "Were playing good baseball right now," Scherzer said. "If we play good baseball and do the little things right, were as good as any team in the American League. Thats what we did this series." The first trip to Cleveland began a 9-20 tailspin that dropped the Tigers out of first place for the first time this season. Manager Brad Ausmus is pleased his team finally seems to be out of its funk. "We played well here," he said. "Were playing better, obviously, but Im not going to make any declarations that anything is starting or finishing." Scherzer (9-3) bounced back from one of the worst outings of his career. The reigning AL Cy Young winner allowed 10 runs in four innings against Kansas City on Tuesday. Scherzer gave up one run and six hits, striking out eight. He was struck in the side of the right leg by Lonnie Chisenhalls line drive in the sixth, but recovered to throw him out and completed the inning. "That one hurt," Scherzer said. "He hit it good. My leg is planted into the ground, so it has no give. I wore the whole thing." Ausmus and a team trainer checked on Scherzer, who quickly indicated he wanted to remain in the game. Nick Swisher doubled, but David Murphy grounded out and Scherzer pumped his fist as he headed to the dugout. "His velocity actually went up after that," Ausmus said. Cabrera hit his 13th homer in the first, added an RBI single in the third and drove in a run with a grounder in the fifth when Detroit scored seven times. Josh Tomlin (4-5) allowed eight runs in four-plus innings. He faced six hitters in the fifth and all reached base. Cabrera, whose RBI double in the 10th inning Saturday gave Detroit a 5-4 win, lined a full-count pitch to right after Tomlin retired the first two batters in the firstt. [url=http://www.mavericksteamofficial.com/dennis-smith-jr-mavericks-jersey/]Dennis Smith Jr. Jersey[/url]. The Tigers took advantage of errors by shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera and centre fielder Michael Bourn in taking a 9-0 lead in the fifth. "Against any team, if you give them extra opportunities, theres a decent chance you pay for it," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "They just blew it open and we helped them. They dont need the help." Singles by Ian Kinsler and Austin Jackson placed runners at the corners. Cabreras grounder scored a run -- the call of an apparent force play at second was overturned when a replay review requested by Ausmus showed the shortstop dropped the throw from Jason Kipnis before completing the out on Jackson. Bourn charged in for Victor Martinezs line drive but dropped the ball, loading the bases. J.D. Martinez, extending his hitting streak to 12 games, doubled to right before Nick Castellanos doubled to left for a 7-0 lead. Austin Romine added an RBI single off Kyle Crockett. J.D Martinez is batting .447 with four homers, five doubles and 11 RBIs in his hitting streak. Even though Torii Hunter is expected to return Tuesday in Texas after missing six games with a strained right hamstring, Martinez will remain in the lineup. "I dont see how I can take him out unless he tells he doesnt want to play or cant play," Ausmus said. Michael Brantley drove in three runs for Cleveland with an RBI double in the fifth and a two-run double in the ninth. NOTES: Cleveland has lost four of five at home since winning 10 straight at Progressive Field. ... Tomlin, who has lost three straight starts, has allowed a team-high 10 homers in 55 1-3 innings. ... The Indians committed three errors, bringing their season total to a major league-high 67. Cabrera leads the team with 14. ... ... Indians RHPs Justin Masterson and Corey Kluber have been taking batting practice and running the bases to get ready for interleague series at Arizona that begins Tuesday. ... Tigers LHP Patrick McCoy, called up from Triple-A Toledo following Saturdays game, made his major league debut and pitched a scoreless eighth.
