"I try to look at it in the point of view that they are just trying to help you understand, but you don't like to be in that situation because of the letdown." Leetch didn't let his teammates down Sunday, leading the Rangers with five shots and starting a sequence that led to Alexei Kovalev's power-play goal. Although Leetch has been playing with a broken finger, a weakened wrist from a past injury and the pressure of replacing Mark Messier as team captain, he doesn't use them as excuses. "There's no way to hide from the stats," Leetch said. But the Rangers, who are win-less in their past five (0-3-2), sure hope thing turnaround quick. B Garden mush: A big gripe for both teams after the game was the poor ice conditions. The Garden ice is notorious as one of the worst surfaces in the league.

DIRECTIONS: Take 1-95 or Florida's Turnpike south to Northwest Eighth Street in downtown Miami. Turn left and arena is three By Joy Russo Special To The Palm Beach Post NEW YORK New York Rangers General Manager Neil Smith said he will send a tape of Sunday's 1-1 game with the Pan-. thers to the NHL for review of a first-period high-sticking penalty by Florida's Kirk Muller. Using the shaft of his stick, Muller hit the neck of Rangers winger Niklas Sundstrom at the 11:33 mark. Referee Kerry Fraser gave Muller two minutes for the high stick, a call Rangers coach Colin Campbell said was insufficient. "I didn't see how serious it was until I saw the replay," Campbell said. "(Sundstrom) might have been all over him, but did he deserve to get hit like that?" Although Sundstrom was shaken by the hit, he was not seriously injured and returned on his next shift. B Brian's song: Rangers captain Brian Leetch would rather be left alone. Coaches and teammates have been supportive of the defense-man during his season-long slump, in which he has a dismal minus-20 rating. Fitzgerald gets 5th goal season PANTHERS FromlC overtime were indicative of their attitude by that point. Murray sent out his scoring line centered by Steve Washburn; Campbell sent out his checking line with Brian Skrudland. "They were hanging on, hop ing for the point," Fitzgerald said. Fitzgerald gave the Panthers the early lead, picking up a short pass by Bui Lindsay and firing a quick shot from the high slot through the legs of goaltender Mike Rich-ter for his fifth goal of the season at 1:47. But after Fitzgerald went off for hooking seven seconds later, Alexei Kovalev drove a long shot by John Vanbiesbrouck for his sixth of the year, tying it at 3:UU, Vanbiesbrouck wasn't screened on the shot and admitted he could have played it better. "The puck kind of skipped in, and that was tough to take after we d just scored, he said. Vanbiesbrouck, who had given up five goals in each of his past two appearances, made a handful of big stops in the first period, when the Rangers had a 14-7 advantage in shots and three power plays to the Panthers one. " "They've been taking some heat here, so we expected them to come strong early," Panthers cap tain Scott Mellanby said. "They had some chances," Vanbiesbrouck said, "but we gained momentum in the second and got our legs really cooking. Mike (Richter) had to make some big saves." He also faced a few breaks, as both Ray Sheppard and Steve Washburn were unable to score when faced with open nets in the second period. Washburn struggled to control a loose puck in front, while Sheppard, who had the better chance, shot wide off a pass from Robert Svehla, ""It was a great pass, right on the tape," Sheppard said. "The net is four-by-six (feet); I shot at one four-by-seven, and I hit the other foot." Johan Garpenlov, who picked up his first two assists last week, but has yet to get his first goal, had two good chances in the third period. But Richter smothered his deflection of a Svehla shot, then stopped him one-on-one after Ray Whitney had sent him in alone down the left side. "I'm not happy that I'm not scoring," Garpenlov said. "But I'm getting more chances lately, and as long as I'm getting chances, they'r going to come." - blocks on the right. LATEST LINE: Panthers -'aeven. '-see NHL itandlngs for explanation of line.
