Recap

Ryan Callahan scored an overtime goal to lift the New York Rangers to a 3-2 win over the Penguins at Pittsburgh Monday night.

Callahan converted a perfect pass from Brandon Dubinsky on a 2-on-1 3:38 into the extra session for the game-winner.

The Rangers’ Erik Christensen opened the scoring midway through the second period. Christensen netted his third goal of the season assisted by Ruslan Fedotenko and Matt Gilroy.

Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist preserved the lead when he robbed Chris Kunitz in the opening seconds of a Penguins’ power play with 4:22 to play in the third period. But Kunitz lifted a rebound over Lundqvist a couple of minutes later to tie the game 1-1.

Pittsburgh then took the lead when Matt Cooke blasted a wrist shot by Lundqvist just 38 seconds later.

To make matters worse, after the goal Lundqvist smashed his stick on the net and was given an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

But New York’s Marc Staal picked up a loose puck and scored a shorthanded goal just 27 seconds later to tie the game at 2-2 with 1:36 to play and Callahan scored his fifth of the season in overtime to win it.

Lundqvist stopped 37 shots for New York (10-7-1), while Marc-Andre Fleury  made 22 saves for the Penguins (9-8-2).
