ATZENBRUGG, Austria -- Mikael Lundberg ended a six-year title drought with a gutsy 40-foot putt in a playoff against Bernd Wiesberger to win the Lyoness Open on Sunday. [url=http://www.salenikeshoesaustralia.com/air-force-1-clearance.html]Air Force 1 Sale Australia[/url] . The Swede birdied the first playoff hole to deny Wiesberger a second victory at his home event after 2012. It was Lundbergs third European Tour title after winning the Russian Open in 2005 and 2008. "It feels fantastic, it was very nice. I made a fantastic putt," said Lundberg, who was six strokes off the lead overnight. "I knew I was far behind and I even didnt think I was going to win. I was just hoping to play well." Lundberg, who made three birdies in a row on his way to a 65, and Wiesberger, who shot 69, were tied at 12 under after the fourth round. Defending champion Joost Luiten, who teed off the final day with a two-shot lead over Wiesberger, carded a par 72. The Dutchman finished third, one stroke off the lead. "I didnt play great," Luiten said. "Nothing went my way, really ... If you are two clear, you want to win, you want to finish it off. If you dont do that, you are disappointed." Englands Lee Slattery, who was second after Fridays play, scored 66 to finish another stroke back in fourth. Lundberg topped the leaderboard for the first two days but looked to have squandered his chances with a 4-over 76 on Saturday. "I felt a little bit more pressure going into the third round since I was leading," Lundberg said. "Today was slightly better, not the long shots, but my short game was very good. That changed everything." Lundbergs improved short game helped him overcome several disappointing seasons that left him wondering if he was ever going to win a title again. Just weeks ago, he started working with coach Neil Jordan, and said he has been gaining confidence from the co-operation. "I have been struggling," said the 40-year-old Lundberg, who came through Q School for the last three years. "We started working on a few things. Not very different things, just basics ... I worked a little bit more on my short game which is now starting to pay off." It was Lundbergs second win in a playoff after the Russian Open in 2005 . With a victory, Wiesberger would have become the first Austrian to qualify for the U.S. Open. He can still make it but is now dependent on results from the St. Jude Classic in Memphis, Tennessee, later Sunday. Wiesberger was loudly cheered through the sun-soaked day by a large home crowd. He soon overtook Luiten with birdies on the first and third hole and stayed ahead of the Dutchman almost throughout. However, he lost a one-stroke lead over Lundberg with three holes to play. "I had it in my hands," Wiesberger said. "He had a great putt, he deserves it but I lost it a bit. I didnt play great." Daniel Im of the United States carded the lowest score of the tournament with a 8-under 64 despite double-bogeying the par-4 fifth. Im had 10 birdies including five on the final six holes to finish 7 under for the tournament.

PAUL, Minn – The clock lingered for what seemed like an interminable two minutes and 51 seconds before Mark Fraser finally escaped to the bench during a wildly one-sided first period of an eventual loss to Boston.

Richard Panik, Eric Brewer and Steven Stamkos had third-period goals to help the Lightning beat the Philadelphia Flyers 4-2 on Thursday night. Tyler Johnson had the other goal for Tampa Bay, which moved within a point of Montreal for second place in the Atlantic Division. If the Lightning win their last two games, they will clinch the Atlantics runner-up spot. "To have the ability to win out and get home ice, thats what you want," Stamkos said. "You want to play meaningful games down the stretch. Obviously, we were proud to get into the playoffs, but it would be icing on the cake to get home ice. Its in our hands." Wayne Simmonds and Sean Couturier scored for the playoff-bound Flyers, who are tied for third in the Metropolitan Division with Columbus. "I thought we were up today," Philadelphia coach Craig Berube said. "I thought we competed real hard. The first five minutes, we turned the puck over a couple of times and they ended up getting a goal. But other than that, I liked the way we played tonight. We didnt finish, in my opinion, good enough." Anders Lindback played in place of injured Tampa Bay starting goalie Ben Bishop, who may not be ready for the start of the playoff series next week against Montreal due to an upper-body injury. Bishop, 37-14-7 this season, left Tuesday nights game against Toronto early in the first period after it appeared he hurt his left elbow. Lindback stopped 34 shots, including a glove save on Tye McGinns in-close rebound with 8 minutes left in the first. He came off the bench Tuesday and made 25 saves in a 3-0 victory over the Maple Leafs. ";Its a great opportunity for him, and hes seizing the moment," Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. [url=http://www.salenikeshoesaustralia.com/air-max-90-clearance/max-90-essential-cheap.html]Air Max 90 Essential Australia[/url]. Panik won a race for the puck behind the net, moved out front and gave Tampa Bay a 2-1 lead on a back-hand rebound of his own shot 4:33 into the third. It stopped the right wings 17-game goal drought. Brewer extended the advantage to 3-1 when he beat Ray Emery from the left circle at 9:43 of the third. After the Flyers pulled within one when Tampa Bays Ondrej Palat deflected Couturiers pass past Lindback at 12:22, Stamkos power-play goal made it 4-2 with 5:46 remaining. "I thought we played well for 40 again, and then we were hit or miss in the third," Simmonds said. "We had some really good shifts, and then we had some bonehead plays which cost us the game. Were not playing smart. Were not keeping it simple." Stamkos setup Johnsons goal from the left circle 2 minutes into the game. Johnson set a team rookie record, breaking the mark set by Stamkos, with his 24th goal this season. Simmonds tied it at 1 on an in-close turnaround goal during a power play with 1:21 to go in the second. The Flyers entered with the NHLs top-ranked road power play. Emery turned aside two good scoring chances by both Stamkos and Ryan Callahan during a second-period Tampa Bay power play. He finished with 26 saves. Notes: With Lindback out of position after making a save in the third, Lightning D Radko Gudas stopped a shot in the crease. "Give me goalie pads," Gudas joked. "Lucky it hit me." ... Tampa Bay D Michael Kostka returned and had two assists after missing three games with a concussion. ... The Flyers have lost six straight road games against Tampa Bay. ... Lightning D Sami Salo sat out with an undisclosed upper-body injury. ' ' '
