NHL Headline News

 PITTSBURGH (AP) -Evgeni Malkin deflected Sidney Crosby's one-timer from the right point on a Pittsburgh power play with 1:41 remaining to finish a frantic comeback, and the Penguins rallied from a three-goal deficit against the New York Rangers for a 5-4 victory in their second-round playoff series opener Friday night.
Petr Sykora and Marian Hossa scored 20 seconds apart early in the third period during Pittsburgh's second such flurry of their rally, and the Penguins shook off Scott Gomez's tying goal midway through the period for one of best comeback victories in their playoff history.
The Rangers lost for the first time in four road games in these playoffs, an unexpected ending after they seized the momentum and, it seemed, control of the game with a 3-0 lead that looked very safe with star Henrik Lundqvist in net.
Stars 3, Sharks 2, OT
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Brenden Morrow scored his second goal of the night 4:39 into overtime, and the Dallas Stars opened their second-round series with a 3-2 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Friday night.
Mike Modano also scored, while Marty Turco made 25 saves in the Stars' seventh win in their last eight trips to Silicon Valley. They've thoroughly dominated the Pacific Division champion Sharks here for two years, leading Modano to jokingly rename his team after their sixth straight win in January.
Jonathan Cheechoo scored the tying goal for San Jose with 3:02 left in regulation, but the Sharks' defensive sloth allowed Mattias Norstrom to whip the puck across the ice to Morrow early in OT. The Dallas captain scored easily against an off-balance Evgeni Nabokov, who finished with 16 saves.
Game 2 is Sunday night at the Shark Tank, with Game 3 in Dallas on Tuesday.
