'm a m m i A THE PALM BEACH POST SATURDAY. DECEMBER 6, 1997 7C Panthers Calendar In the Crease NICE THREADS: Detroit's Brendan Shanahan is part- ; owner of Rival, an apparel . company.

' Upcoming timet NovemberDecember GOING DUTCH: Chris Pronger and Al Maclnnis celebrated their selection to the Canadian Olympic Team by taking their Blues teammates out to dinner. But the pair told Brett Hull they weren't buying for him because he was on the American team. Later they said they were only kidding. No more ties."

In that stretch, he has a 1.75 goals-against average and .940 save percentage. B Hurricanes 2, Coyotes 2: Cliff Ron-ning's second goal in his past 20 games gave Phoenix its tie with Carolina at Greensboro, N.C. Steve Leach's apparent game-winning breakaway goal for the Hurricanes with 4:09 left in regulation was waved off when teammate Robert Kron was penalized for dragging down Teppo Numminen, who was chasing Leach. LATE THURSDAY ' Sharks 3, Canucks 2: Stephane Mat-teau capped a three-goal burst in less than five minutes in the third period, John LeClair scored his 21st and 22nd goals of the season for the Flyers. Sabres 4, Lightning 0: Dominik Hasek made 38 saves for his second straight shutout, and Buffalo Sabres got goals from three de-fensemen in beating Tampa Bay at Midland Marine Center. Hasek recorded back-to-back shutouts for the third time in his career and the first time since November 1996. He has 23 career shutouts, including three this season. Defensemen Mike Wilson, Jason Woolley, and Bob Boughner each scored their first goals of the season for Buffalo, which extended its unbeaten streak to four games (2-0-2). Miros-lav Satan scored the other Buffalo goal. Wilson, Woolley and Satan also had one assist. Hasek had been ridiculed by Sabres fans for The Associated Press NEW YORK Brian Leetch scored two goajs to cap a three-goal comeback by the New York Rangers and salvage a tie at 4 Friday night with the Philadelphia Flyers. The Rangers lead the NHL in ties with 10. The tie extended both teams' winless streaks, the Rangers to seven (0-4-3) games and the Flyers (0-1-3) to four. Leetch beat Flyers goaltender Garth Snow on a power play at 3:07 of the third period for his sixth goal of the season with a hard slap shot from the right faceoff dot to tie the score at 4-4. Rangers goaltender Mike Richter, whose misplay led to an overtime loss to Washington on Tuesday, flubbed two clearing attempts which resulted in goals and was pulled for Jason Muzzatti at 6:17 of the second period.

The loss extended the Panthers' winless streak to four games (0-3-1). Washington, which played 18 of its first 28 games on the road, is 14-10-5. Florida was credited with an 11-2 advantage in shots in the first period and one of those two shots credited to Washington was bogus, as Chris Simon's effort with less than one second remaining never would have reached the net in time to count. Challenged by Murray to match the Caps' intensity early, the Panthers responded by putting pressure on the Washington net from the start. The pressure paid off at 7:23 when Steve Washburn tipped in Laus' drive from the right point. The goal gave Washburn, who is technically still a rookie, his fourth goal of the season, eclipsing the three he scored in 18 NHL games last year. It also was his second in as many games.

The Panthers worked the puck around the offensive zone to Ed Jovanovski at the left point. Jovan-ovski's shot deflected slightly by Ray Sheppard sailed past goaltender Olaf Kolzig and off the right post. Washington's best chance came in the final seconds after a faceoff in the Caps' zone with 8.6 seconds left. Simon grabbed the loose puck at the blue line and had a step on the Panther defense, but pushed the puck too far ahead of himself and John Vanbiesbrouck smothered his weak attempt as time expired. Washington came out energized in the second, amassing a 7-1 lead in shots in the first five minutes. But Vanbiesbrouck, who was sharp in his last outing (a 1-1 tie with the Rangers in New York on Sunday) kept the door shut. Steve Konowalchuk, who drew ' a boarding penalty from Robert Svehla at 1:38, had three successive chances from close range before anyone could arrive, but Vanbiesbrouck turned them back. , Both teams struck for power-play goals early in the third period. Long shot puts Lynn By Chuck Otterson Palm Beach Post Staff Writer BOCA RATON A 1-in-100 shot by Gareth Dunn gave Lynn a 1-0 victory over four-time national champion Southern Connecticut State in the NCAA Division II men's soccer semifinals Friday. Only 12:30 had elapsed when Dunn took a pass from Chris Hannaka and rifled a 45-yard, low line drive into the lower right corner of the net for the only goal in a showdown between the nation's top two Division II teams at McCusker Sports Complex. It was the first loss of the season and only the third in four years for the top-ranked Owls (21-1-1). "You get one of those once in a blue moon," said Dunn, a redshirt freshman from Sheffield, England. "I've tried it 100 times, and most of them went over the fence." Lynn (19-1), ranked second in the nation, plays fifth-ranked Cal State-Bakersfield (18-4) for the national championship at 1 p.m. Sunday. The Roadrunners advanced with a 2-0 victory over Truman State (16-6) in Friday's other semifinal. "We knew we wouldn't get many opportunities," said Lynn coach Shaun Pendleton, whose Knights won the NAIA title in 1991, "but we managed to create a few and made good on one." Hannaka, one of two Lynn seniors, said he was "just trying to change the point of attack" when he passed the ball to Dunn. "I wasn't anticipating him taking a shot, but he had confidence in himself and made it." "There were a lot of people just outside the box," said . Southern Connecticut goalkeeper Billy Gatti, who came into the match with a goals-against average of 0.37. "When I saw the ball coming, I dived for By Brian Biggane Palm Beach Post Staff Writer WASHINGTON Friday was a day of celebration for the Washington Capitals. After more than 23 years in suburban Landover, Md., the Caps finally moved downtown to the new 19,700-seat MCI Center. And as luck would have it, the man who has spent more time than any other behind the Capitals' bench Bryan Murray was in town to share the moment. "It's a beautiful building," said Murray, a former Capitals coach who can recall the days when the team dressed in trailers outside the building most recently known as USAir Arena, and when they practiced on a rink in Mount Vernon that had a slope of several degrees, which resulted in water pooling at one end. Murray's most pertinent concern Friday was leading his Panthers against a team that hoped to get off to a successful start in its new home. "I'm sure there's going to be a feeling of, 'Let's make our home building an important building,' " Murray said. in a crowd in final Soccer it and touched it, but not enough." All-America defender Mike Petke said Lynn "had three or four guys up front. I was marking my man and didn't see the ball till the last second. He just blasted it through." "I figured one would go in eventually," said Dunn, Lynn's fourth-leading scorer with six goals-and 18 points this season. "It was my lucky game. "I was going for the back post area. There were so many people in front of me, the keeper might have been screened. From that far out, you'll take the top corner or the bottom." The Owls dominated the second half and almost tied the score on a shot by All-America midfielder Itai Mor with 10:30 remaining. The ball hit the under side of the cross bar and came down on the goal line, where Matt Nelson made a spectacular diving save. "The ball was deflected and looked like it was going over the bar," Nelson said, "but it stayed in." Lynn's defense, led by All-America sweeper Darren War-ham, shut down the Owls' leading scorer, Renwick Hutson (17-640). "Anybody that scores more than 10 or 15 goals a season, you have to respect them," said Warham, a 25-year-old junior from Ashington, England. "It's a huge disappointment," said Mor, one of five Israelis on the Owls' roster. Lynn 1, S. Connecticut 0 S. Conn. State Lynn 0 0 - 1 0 - I -Dunn 6 (Hannaka, Kristensen).
