PITTSBURGH (AP) — James Neal’s power-play goal 1:27 into overtime lifted the Pittsburgh Penguins to a wild 4-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday.
Neal’s slapshot over Anders Lindback’s right shoulder capped a frantic final 15 minutes of play as the teams traded the lead three times.
Evgeni Malkin had two goals and two assists while Sidney Crosby added a goal and two assists for the Penguins, who have won nine straight over the Lightning. Jeff Zatkoff stopped 21 shots and Pittsburgh ended Tampa Bay’s five-game winning streak.
Steven Stamkos, Valtteri Filppula and Ondrej Palat scored for the Lightning, who have recorded at least one point in eight straight games. Lindback made 25 saves but had no chance on Neal’s 23rd goal of the season.
