PITTSBURGH — Tyler Kennedy scored 2:33 into overtime and the Pittsburgh Penguins ran their winning streak to 12 games with a 2-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday night.


Sidney Crosby tied things late in regulation and Kennedy won it with his fifth goal of the season, a wrist shot from the left circle.


Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 27 shots for Pittsburgh, which remained unbeaten in March.


Claude Giroux scored his 10th goal of the season late in the second period for Philadelphia, but the Flyers couldn’t make it hold up on a night they played without forward Danny Briere and defenseman Nicklas Grossman.


Ilya Bryzgalov made 33 saves but let two slip by late.


Capitals 3, Rangers 2, SO


NEW YORK — Nicklas Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin scored in the shootout and regulation and Washington extended its winning streak to three games.


Braden Holtby made 30 saves in regulation and overtime and stopped three of four Rangers in the shootout for the Capitals.


Arron Asham and Derek Stepan had New York’s goals in regulation and Henrik Lundqvist stopped 22 shots.


Ovechkin scored in the second round of the shootout, only to see Derek Stepan tally for New York to knot it at 1-1 after three rounds.


After Holtby denied Brad Richards, Backstrom beat Lundqvist to decide the contest in the fourth round.


Islanders 3, Panthers 0


UNIONDALE, N.Y. — Evgeni Nabokov made 26 saves, defenseman Andrew MacDonald scored the winning goal and New York Islanders salvaged the finale of a four-game homestand.


It was Nabokov’s third shutout this season for the Islanders. MacDonald scored his second goal of the season at 6:05 of the first period on the power play.


John Tavares scored his team-leading 19th goal, an empty-netter with 31 seconds left. Casey Cizikas added an empty net score with 13 seconds remaining.
