Sutter scores in 3rd period, adds lone goal in SO as Penguins top Rangers 4-3

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Brandon Sutter scored in the third period and then rescued the Penguins with the only goal of the shootout to lift Pittsburgh to a 4-3 victory over the New York Rangers on Wednesday night.

Sutter gave the Penguins a 3-1 lead just 1:01 after Pascal Dupuis snapped a 1-1 tie, but Pittsburgh couldn't hold the edge. It took until the fifth round of the shootout for the deadlock to be broken for good, and the Penguins skated off with their fifth straight victory.

Dupuis gave the Penguins their second lead of the night, off a feed from Sidney Crosby, at 5:25, and Sutter used a strong individual effort to make it 3-1 at 6:26. Chris Kunitz had a goal and assist, Crosby had two assists to increase his NHL-leading points total 49, and Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 29 shots.

Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
