PITTSBURGH (AP) - Tyler Kennedy scored 2:33 into overtime and the Pittsburgh Penguins ran their winning streak to 12 games with a 2-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday night.
Sidney Crosby tied things late in regulation and Kennedy won it with his fifth goal of the season, a wrist shot from the left circle.
Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 27 shots for Pittsburgh, which remained unbeaten in March.
Claude Giroux scored his 10th goal of the season late in the second period for Philadelphia, but the Flyers couldn't make it hold up on a night they played without forward Danny Briere and defenseman Nicklas Grossman.
Ilya Bryzgalov made 33 saves but let two slip by late.
CAPITALS 3, RANGERS 2, SO
