PITTSBURGH, Feb. 3 (UPI) -- James Neal
negated a standout performance by goalie Craig Anderson
with a game-winning score 1:55 into overtime, lifting Pittsburgh over Ottawa 2-1.
Anderson had turned aside 44-of-45 shots until Neal put in the rebound of a Robert Bortuzzo shot with a hesitation move that faked the Ottawa goaltender to the ice.
Brian Gibbons got the other goal for the Penguins, who notched a third win in four games.
Marc-Andre Fleury recorded 24 stops, including a scintillating glove save on Erik Karlsson in the third period to preserve a 1-1 tie.
Stephane Da Costa scored for the Senators.
