NEW YORK – Jordon Staal scored a power-play goal 3:42 into overtime on Pittsburgh’s 55th shot at Henrik Lundqvist, and the Penguins outlasted the New York Rangers 5-4 on Thursday night.

Evgeni Malkin, who earlier in the overtime advantage struck a goal post and was robbed by Lundqvist’s outstretched glove save, fired a shot from the left circle that bounced in off Rangers forward Brandon Dubinsky and Staal. It was the third Penguins goal that went in off a Rangers player.

Pittsburgh held the Rangers to 16 shots overall and only one after the second period. The Penguins went 5-1 against their Atlantic Division rivals this season. New York had a three-game winning streak snapped.

The 50 saves were a career high for Lundqvist, who stopped 45 shots in a 1-0 shootout loss to New Jersey on Jan. 12.

Defenseman Wade Redden’s hooking penalty 1:45 into overtime set up the winner. Penguins Coach Dan Bylsma called a timeout before the power play started.

Backup goalie Brent Johnson earned the victory, despite facing only four shots in place of ineffective starter Marc-Andre Fleury.

Fleury saw his first action since Feb. 14, despite being on Canada’s Olympic team. He allowed four goals on 12 shots and was gone with 7:11 left in the second period after Dubinsky’s shot hit the post and then caromed in off the goalie’s back to give the Rangers a 4-2 lead.

Chris Drury, Artem Anisimov and defenseman Michal Rozsival also scored for New York.

Lundqvist was victimized by three goals that went in off teammates, including Alex Goligoski’s bad-angle shot that hit Marc Staal’s skate with 8:01 left in regulation.
