Pittsburgh Penguins Hockey - Pittsburgh Pennsylvania

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Sidney Crosby tied it with 14 seconds left in regulation and Kris Letang scored the only goal of a shootout, lifting the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 4-3 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Saturday night.

Crosby pounced on a loose puck and fired it by Keith Kinkaid for his NHL-leading 15th goal as Pittsburgh bounced back from an ugly loss in Minnesota on Friday by rallying past the Devils.

Penguins rookie Jake Guentzel picked up his third goal in six days, and Tom Kuhnhackl earned his first goal of the season. Evgeni Malkin had three assists while extending his point streak to eight games.

Mike Cammalleri scored twice for the Devils and now has seven goals in his last five games.
