SUNRISE, Fla. Randal Grichuk Cardinals Jersey . - His shutout streak over, Ryan Miller is happy to keep winning.Radim Vrbata and Bo Horvat scored, Miller stopped 23 shots and the Vancouver Canucks beat the Florida Panthers 2-1 on Monday night.Brandon Pirri spoiled Millers bid for a third straight shutout with 2:32 remaining, ending the goalies career-best scoreless streak at 200:45.

(The shutout streak) was fun while it lasted but the important thing is that we got two points here and we move on to Tampa.The Panthers outshot the Canucks 10-1 in the third period and finally got on the scoreboard when Pirri got the puck off the faceoff and fired a shot from above the right circle through traffic and past Miller.I just couldnt catch up to (the shot). I didnt see (Pirris) release too well and if I dont see the release Im probably dead in the water, Miller said.Miller was solid throughout the game, even after allowing a goal.Its disappointing, Vancouver coach Willie Desjardins said. He made a couple of unbelievable saves; one on the power play. For sure, we wish (the scoreless streak) would have kept going and he deserved it to keep going but that happens sometimes.The Panthers have lost a season-worst four straight, and are lurching into the All-Star break with just one point in the last four games.Real disappointing first period, we didnt play well. Mentally we werent sharp. They came out and took it to us that first period, coach Gerard Gallant said. It could have been a real good finish to have a good homestand.The Canucks scored both goals in the first period and outshot the sluggish Panthers 13-6. Vrbata put Vancouver ahead at 3:25 as Daniel Sedin made a nice pass across to Vrbata on the right side and his shot got past Luongos glove.Ive got to try to be a little better at the start, come up with some big saves, Luongo said. The last few games he (Miller) hasnt given up much so that was a tough one to get back into.Horvat doubled the lead at 8:03 as his shot was deflected into the crease and bounced before drifting across the goal line.I just tried to put the puck on net and fortunately it trickled in, Horvat said. Its been a really good road trip.NOTES: The line of Henrik Sedin, Daniel Sedin, and Vrbata have combined for 108 points for Vancouver this season. ... The game was Luongos third against Vancouver since he was sent to Florida in a four-player deal last March. ... The Panthers have scored once in their last 23 power-play chances. ... Panthers centres Pirri and Vincent Trocheck returned to the lineup after being healthy scratches for the past three and four games, respectively. Orlando Cepeda Cardinals Jersey .

Ever-serious Bernhard Langer keeps churning out sub-par rounds. Bad back and all, Fred Couples is thriving in the wind and cold rain. It makes for an enticing last group in Sundays final round of the Greater Gwinnett Championship. Jimenez, continuing his impressive tour debut, shot a 2-under 70 on Saturday and leads by one stroke after two days at TPC Sugarloaf. Langer and Couples each had a 68 in the second round. Langer is one stroke back of Jimenez and Couples is two back, setting up Sundays all-star final group. "Thats about as good a pairing as youre going to get," Couples said. "Im thrilled about that, to have a shot at winning." Added Langer: "It should be an exciting shootout. ... Whoever is going to win tomorrow is going to play some good golf." Jimenez, Langer and Couples carried over their momentum after strong finishes last week in the Masters. Jimenez was fourth, Langer tied for eighth and Couples tied for 20th in Augusta. "When you come in from a major like the Masters and you are playing well there, you are like in tune, you know?" Jimenez said. Jimenez began the day with a three-stroke lead following his tournament-record 65 on Friday. After the round he said he couldnt wait for "a nice, warm shower, a nice fat cigar and a glass of (wine)." Langer was tied with Jimenez for the lead at 8 under entering Saturdays final hole. Jimenez had a birdie on No. 18. Langer missed putts for eagle and birdie before settling for par annd his second straight 68. Mark McGwire Jersey. Sunday will mark the third straight round Langer and Jimenez have played in the same group. Before the tournament, Langer predicted Jimenez will "leave his mark" on the Champions Tour. That opinion hasnt changed. "Hes very much the same, hes very steady and very methodical and really doesnt have too much of a weakness," Langer said. "Drives the ball well, hits some good irons and putts it very well so thats why hes on top of the leaderboard right now." Jimenez is trying to become the second straight player to win in his Champions Tour debut. Jeff Maggert won the tours last event in Saucier, Miss., on March 23. Jay Haas, Chien Soon Lu, Duffy Waldorf, Kenny Perry and Steve Pate are tied for fourth at 5 under. Haas, Lu and Waldorf had 68s, and Perry and Pate had 71s. Jimenez began his second round with a birdie, but he gave back three strokes on his next three holes. A double bogey on No. 4 dropped him to 5 under. Langer also had his troubles early. He was tied for 10th and was 1 over for the day through eight holes. Just as there were whispers that his streak of 17 consecutive sub-par rounds on the tour could be in jeopardy, Langer had his first birdie of the day on No. 10. That putt sparked a streak of four birdies in six holes. Couples moved into third place with a birdie on 17.
