PITTSBURGH (AP) -Jamie McBain scored his first NHL goal with less than a second remaining in overtime, and the Carolina Hurricanes rallied from a late deficit to beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-2 on Saturday.

Seconds after Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury made what looked to be a potential game-saving stop on Chad LaRose's shot, McBain - getting two points in his third career game - beat Fleury with 0.9 seconds remaining.

The Penguins, 2-2-2 in their last six games, led 2-1 on Evgeni Malkin's goal with 6:55 remaining. Joni Pitkanen tied it at the 16-minute mark.

The Hurricanes, 11-3-1 since Feb. 5, won despite losing starting goalie Manny Legace with an unspecified lower body injury during the second period.

DALLAS (AP) - Brad Richards had two goals, Trevor Daley scored the winner, and Dallas handed Ottawa its fifth straight defeat despite Jason Spezza's hat trick.

Rookie Jamie Benn and Mike Ribeiro also scored for the Stars, who are trying to stay in the Western Conference playoff race despite a 3-6-1 record since the Olympic break.

Senators goalie Pascal Leclaire was pulled from the game after allowing five goals on 19 shots.

Kari Lehtonen stopped 25 shots in his third straight start for Dallas.

Mike Fisher and Spezza capitalized on the Senators' first two power plays after Ottawa had gone 0 for 14 with the man advantage during the previous four games. Ottawa has been outscored 22-9 during its skid.
