PITTSBURGH (AP) -Pascal Dupuis scored on a slap shot from along the edge of the left circle with 10.8 seconds left in overtime and the Pittsburgh Penguins kept the Philadelphia Flyers winless, giving up a two-goal lead in less than a minute before winning 3-2 Tuesday night.
Dupuis, skating along the boards, took Brooks Orpik's pass, hesitated for a moment as he debated whether to pass to a trailing Sidney Crosby, then let go of a hard shot that beat goalie Antero Niittymaki to the glove side.
The Flyers, despite getting goals from Jeff Carter and Simon Gagne in the final minute of the second period, are 0-3 for the first time since the labor dispute-shortened 1995 season. The Penguins didn't get a goal from Crosby for the fourth consecutive game, yet avoided their first three-game losing streak since they dropped four in a row last November.
Wild 4, Thrashers 2
