PITTSBURGH----Marc Staal's shorthander with 1:26 left in regulation and Ryan Callahan's tap in from Brandon Dubinsky in OT salvaged a 3-2 win.

                 The Pens, who had six power plays to the Rangers none ("Don't ask me about the referees, please", John Tortorella said twice in his post-game session), scored two late goals for a 2-1 lead late in the third.

                 "Things kind of fell apart on us pretty quickly in the end, but down by 1, penalty-killing, you've got to take a chance," said Staal, who joined the rush as Henrik Lundqvist was heading to the bench. "The puck squirted out, and I tried to create some space for Dubi and he did the rest. I just shot and saw it land behind (Marc-Andre Fleury) him"

                  "We can't sit here and tell you we had a grerat game and had a big emotional win because we didn't play great in the first half," said Brandon Dubinsky, whose passes set up the tying and winning goals. "The nice thing about it is we found a way to win, but the guys understand that we're not gonna win starting games the way we did tonight. Hank was phenomenal."

                   "I thought Dubinsky took over in the second half of the game," said Tortorella.
"Everybody chipped in."

                   Plenty more coming in a few....
