CALGARY -- For the second time in five days, Sean Monahan scored the game-deciding goal in a shootout to lead the Calgary Flames to victory. Mark Duper Jersey . After scoring in the eighth round on Monday to earn Calgary a 5-4 shootout win on the road over the Winnipeg Jets, Monahan duplicated that feat in the sixth round on Friday at home as the Flames edged the Florida Panthers 4-3. "Weve got to dig deep," said Monahan, who has eight goals and six assists in 23 games so far in his rookie season with the Flames. "Were trying to do whatever we can to get points right now. It feels good. We want wins. I guess putting those in helped the team get some wins." Monahan snapped a hard shot just inside the far post over the right pad of Florida goalie Tim Thomas to earn Calgary the win. "Just kind of outwaiting the goalie and shooting hard," said Monahan of the key to his success in the shootout. "Its something I tried to do and it worked." Joe Colborne had a goal and an assist in regulation for his first multiple-point game with the Flames (8-11-4) since being acquired from the Toronto Maple Leafs in the off-season for a fourth round pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. "Its nice just to get a few wins in here and lighten the mood a bit," said Colborne, who also scored on Wednesday during Calgarys 2-1 overtime loss at home to the Columbus Blue Jackets. "We have obviously a very proud group in here. Its nice to have some music going in the dressing room and some guys who are smiling again. Its just a big team win." Sven Baertschi and Blair Jones also scored for the Flames, who have now collected points in three straight games going 2-0-1 in that span. Playing in his sixth straight game in net for the Flames, Reto Berra stopped 23 shots to improve his record to 3-4-2 in his first NHL season. Berra also stopped Florida forward Nick Bjugstad in the sixth round of the shootout to preserve the victory after Monahan scored. Tom Gilbert, Jimmy Hayes and Marcel Goc scored for the Panthers (6-13-5), who finished up their five-game road trip with a 2-2-1 record. "Ive got to be real proud of the way the guys reacted," said Florida coach Peter Horachek. "Good road trip. From that standpoint, going .500 and all tough games, I think thats really positive." Thomas, who played in his eighth straight game for the Panthers, finished with 21 saves. "We showed a lot of character and a lot of good things, which weve done in the past and we did it again," said Thomas, who was hoping to outduel Berra in the shootout after the Panthers rallied from a 3-1 deficit with two goals in the third period. "When I see the team responding and stepping up like that I want them to get the two points." Neither team mustered a shot on net until 5:41 of the first period when Thomas easily stopped and smothered a point blast off the stick of Calgary defenceman Chris Butler. The Panthers took a 1-0 lead at 15:14 of the first on Gilberts first goal of the season. Bjugstad won the faceoff back to Gilbert, who let go a shot from the point through traffic that fooled Berra and found the back of the net. At the nine-minute mark of the second period, Colborne scored his third of the season to pull the Flames even. Lance Bouma did a good job of forechecking to force Florida defenceman Mike Mottau to turn the puck over. The puck bounced off of Calgary forward David Jones right to Colborne, who wired a perfect shot from the slot into the top corner over the outstretched glove of Thomas. "It was more of a reaction," Colborne said. "When you get a puck in that area, you dont have much time and I just got it on my stick and tried to get it in the top corner." Baertschi then broke out of a 15-game goal-less drought when he scored a power-play goal at 12:04 of the second to put the Flames up 2-1. Thomas gave up a big rebound of a point shot by T.J. Brodie that was tipped by Colborne and the puck bounced right to Baertschi, who swatted it into the back of the net. Jones gave Calgary a 3-1 lead at 5:40 of the third when he converted a feed from Bouma for his first goal in his first game of the season with the Flames. Just 82 seconds later, Hayes took advantage of a turnover by Berra to score his first of the season to pull the Panthers within a goal. Berra ventured out of his net in an attempt to poke check the puck away from Florida forward Shawn Matthias, but it went right to Hayes, who shot it into a wide-open net. Goc scored at 14:01 of the third to force overtime when he outwaited Berra before snapping a shot that snuck under the Calgary goalies left arm and into the net. "They seem to respond every time," Horachek said. "We wanted to come back out in the third and do what we have to do and they scored and (we) didnt drop their heads."

John Henson contributed a double-double with 15 points to go with 11 rebounds for the Tar Heels (25-4, 12-2 ACC), who have won five straight and 10 of 11.NEW YORK, N.Y. - Sitting behind a microphone in his New York Mets uniform, Bobby Abreu couldnt help but get choked up as he bid goodbye to the game he loves.Adios, he said, holding back tears.In a news conference Friday at Citi Field, the 40-year-old Abreu announced his plans to retire after the season, ending perhaps one of the most underappreciated careers in recent memory.Used almost exclusively as a pinch hitter in his final days with New York, Abreu thanked the Mets for the opportunity to complete his comeback and go out on his own terms a€” wearing a big league uniform.I feel happy with my career. I feel blessed, Abreu said. For me as a baseball player, I (achieved) all my goals.Abreu was out of the majors last season, but played winter ball back home in Venezuela and went to spring training this year with Philadelphia. After getting cut by the Phillies, the outfielder signed a minor league deal with the Mets and was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas a couple of times.A two-time All-Star who was a model of consistency in his prime, Abreu has quietly put up some marvelous numbers. He owns a .291 career batting average with 288 home runs and 1,363 RBIs. He has 2,469 hits and 400 stolen bases.Known for his sharp eye and patience at the plate, Abreu has drawn 1,475 walks a€” most among active players a€” to help him compile an outstanding .395 career on-base percentage.The only other players in major league history with 200 homers, 1,200 walks and 400 steals are Barry Bonds, Rickey Henderson and Joe Morgan.He was probably a little bit underappreciated. But when its all said and done, I think the numbers are going to speak up for themselves, said Mets manager Terry Collins, who was seated beside Abreu for his announcement.Abreu noted he was happy that Collins, his first major league manager in Houston, also will be his last. And his final games will be against the Astros, who signed Abreu in 1990 and brought him to the majors six yeaars later. Andre Branch Jersey. Collins and the Mets have credited Abreu with mentoring several of their young Latin players, in particular centre fielder Juan Lagares. Abreu said he would like to become a hitting coach one day.I have a lot of fun with these young guys. Theyre special, Abreu said. Even though Im 40 years old, they make me feel young, being around with them and playing around. And at that point I realized, this game is now for the next generation. And I think I just got done, and that made me decide its time to say goodbye.Abreu was hitting .246 this season with a homer and 14 RBIs in 130 at-bats. He was 5 for 38 (.132) with four walks as a pinch hitter.Omar Vizquel (2,877) and Hall of Famer Luis Aparicio (2,677) are the only Venezuelan-born players with more career hits.Bobby has been a positive influence in our clubhouse from the day he got here. He constantly has talked to our younger players about hitting and how they can get better, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said in a packet of quotes about Abreu that was distributed by his agent. He has had a long and illustrious career and we are glad he spent a brief part of it in a Mets uniform.Abreu was in the majors from April 22 until Aug. 4 this season. The Mets released him six days later, but he re-signed with the club, returned to Las Vegas and was called up again on Sept. 10.He has not started a game since July 25, but his presence has been felt. Collins said Abreus willingness to work his way back in the minors is a great example for all these young guys who think theyre bigger than the game.The younger we got, the more impact he had, Collins said. I think hes made a big influence. I think his impact is going to be seen and felt by Juan Lagares a lot.Abreu said whether he gets a farewell start this weekend will be up to Collins, who did not reveal his plans. But he said Abreu will certainly get a chance to walk off the field with his head held high.
