Kris Letang scored from the top of the slot on a power play at 1:20 of overtime Thursday to give the host Pittsburgh Penguins a wild, 7-6 win over the rival Washington Capitals.

Letang finished with two goals and an assist, Jake Guentzel scored twice and Evgeni Malkin had a goal and two assists for Pittsburgh in its season opener.

TJ - Oshie - Seconds - Period - Tie

T.J. Oshie scored twice in 21 seconds in the third period for a 6-6 tie and added an assist for Washington, which was coming off a 7-0 rout of the Boston Bruins in its opener on Wednesday.
