PITTSBURGH, Oct. 15 (UPI) -- Evgeni Malkin notched a go-ahead, power-play goal in the third period Tuesday, elevating the Pittsburgh Penguins over Edmonton 3-2.

With the score knotted 2-2, Edmonton's Andrew Ference was whistled for high-sticking 6:52 into the final period and the Penguins responded 28 seconds later when Malkin buried a one-timer from the right circle.

Pascal Dupuis and Chris Kunitz each notched a goal and an assist while Sidney Crosby assisted on all three Pittsburgh goals as the Penguins improved to 4-0-0 at home for the first time since 1994-95.

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 20-of-22 shots in the victory.

Jordan Eberle and Ales Hemsky each tallied for the Oilers, who fell to 1-5-1 on the young season.

Jason LaBarbara made 25 saves in the loss.
