PITTSBURGH, Nov. 17 (UPI) -- Jason Strudwick scored 1:40 into overtime Saturday night, as the New York Rangers beat the Pittsburgh Penguins, 4-3.

The contest was tied, 3-3, after regulation because Pittsburgh's Petr Sykora scored his ninth goal this season at 14:28 of the third to create the deadlock.

Pittsburgh squandered an early 2-0 lead. New York's Michal Rozsival scored twice in the second.

Daniel Girardi scored once, while goalie Henrik Lundqvist stopped 20-of-23 shots for the Rangers, who have won five in a row and nine of their last 10 games.

Pittsburgh's other goals were scored by Maxime Talbot and Sidney Crosby.

Goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury was beaten four times on 26 shots for the Penguins, who have lost five of their last six.

Crosby has a point in every game this season except the opener, and his scoring total rose to 30 points (11 goals and 19 assists).

In man-advantage situations, New York was 1-for-6, while the Penguins went 0-for-1.
