PITTSBURGH (AP) — Kasperi Kapanen and Jeff Carter scored nine seconds apart in the third period to erase a two-goal deficit and Sidney Crosby scored the only goal of the shootout as the Pittsburgh Penguins rallied to beat the road-weary Winnipeg Jets 3-2 on Sunday.

The Penguins trailed for more than 40 minutes after falling behind early in the first but recovered late to extend their winning streak to five.

Tristan Jarry made 27 saves for the Penguins.

Kyle Connor and Blake Wheeler scored for Winnipeg, and Connor Hellebuyck had 36 saves. The Jets finished 3-3-2 on an eight-game, three-week trip that began on Jan. 2 and included games in three different time zones.

SENATORS 2, BLUE JACKETS 1

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Anton Forsberg stopped 35 shots as Ottawa ended a three-game losing streak.

Artem Zub and Tim Stützle scored for the Senators. Forsberg had 13 saves in the first period, 12 in the second and 10 in the third to get his first win since Dec. 14 after going 0-2-1 in four games in between.

Sean Kuraly scored for Columbus, and Elvis Merzilikins had 31 saves. The Blue Jackets lost for the third time in four games overall, and third straight at home.

KINGS 3, DEVILS 2
