PITTSBURGH (AP) -Bill Guerin scored his second goal after Pittsburgh during a rare two-man power play in overtime, and the Penguins went up two games in their first-round playoff series against the Philadelphia Flyers, winning 3-2 on Friday night.

Guerin took Sergei Gonchar's pass from center point and skated toward the net from the low left circle, faked a pass and beat goalie Martin Biron on a shot that deflected off the left post and into the net 18:29 into overtime.

Guerin also scored the goal that tied it at 1 late in the second period, and Evgeni Malkin tied it at 2 with 3:37 remaining in the third after rookie Darroll Powe's goal put the determined Flyers up early in the period.

Scott Hartnell gave the Flyers a 1-0 lead in the first period.

Philadelphia will host Game 3 on Sunday.

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Defenseman Tim Gleason scored his first NHL playoff goal on a slap shot at 2:40 of overtime and Carolina beat New Jersey to tie the first-round playoff series at a game apiece.

Gleason's shot from the right point appeared to hit the skate of Devils defenseman Niclas Havelid and carom past defenseless goalie Martin Brodeur.

Eric Staal, who provided a screen in front of Brodeur, scored the other goal for the Hurricanes. Zach Parise tallied for the Devils, who lost captain Jamie Langenbrunner to a lower body injury in the second period.

Game 3 is Sunday at Carolina.
