Murray's OT goal with seconds left gives Blue Jackets 5-4 preseason win over Penguins

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Rookie defenceman Ryan Murray scored 4:38 into overtime to lift the Columbus Blue Jackets past the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-4 on Sunday night in the preseason opener for both teams.

Murray took a feed from R.J. Umberger and beat backup goalie Jeff Zatkott. Murray was the No. 2 pick in the 2012 NHL draft but missed the season with a shoulder injury.

Chuck Kobasew got Pittsburgh even 4-4 at 13:05 of the third period with a power-play goal — his second tally of the game. Mark Letestu and Cam Atkinson scored 30 seconds apart earlier in the period to give Columbus a 4-3 lead.

Dustin Jeffrey's power-play goal for Pittsburgh had made it 3-2 at 4:19.

Pittsburgh's James Neal opened the scoring 47 seconds in. Columbus' Artem Anisimov and James Wisniewski had goals in the first period.

Marc-Andre Fleury allowed two goals on 12 shots, and Curtis McElhinney made 24 saves for the Blue Jackets in two periods of work.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
