Connor Sheary scored the game winner with 1:42 left in the third period, lifting the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 4-3 win over the Edmonton Oilers.
Sheary’s shot from the side of the net was stopped by Cam Talbot. Oilers forward Benoit Pouliot attempted to clear the rebound, but he inadvertently slapped the puck into his own net.
Sheary also opened the scoring, firing a slap shot past Talbot just 1:57 into the first period. The Oilers responded with three straight goals. Jordan Eberle and Patrick Maroon scored in the first period. Eberle added another, his 150th career goal, early in the second. Eberle finished with two goals and an assist. Connor McDavid had three assists.
Carl Hagelin pulled the Penguins to within 3-2 before the end of the second. Evgeni Malkin made it 3-3 5:33 into the third.
The Oilers finish their five-game road trip at 2-2-1. They’re 9-4-1 on the season. They’ll host Dallas on Friday. (jrw)
