PHILADELPHIA (AP) - One by one, shots were turned away, pucks fired wide or smacked into a glove. With a shootout dragging on toward near-record length, all Marcel Hossa wanted was to get out early.

''I didn't want to do any fake moves,'' Hossa said. ''I just wanted to shoot it right away.''

Hossa took quick aim on Antero Niittymaki and slipped the puck between the pads in the 13th round of a shootout to give the New York Rangers a 5-4 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday night.

After 12 Rangers failed to come close to scoring, Hossa finally finished off one of the NHL's longest shootouts. The Rangers, of course, know a little something about winning long shootouts. They went 15 rounds to beat Washington last season.
