Carter scores first with Pittsburgh in 7-6 win over Devils

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Penguins can play dazzling hockey at times. They can also occasionally flirt with disaster. They managed to do both in a 7-6 victory over New Jersey on Tuesday that started as a blowout before stunningly turning into something far more harrowing.

Nearly becoming the first NHL team to blow a six-goal, third-period lead will do that.

"Well I've never been through an experience like that," Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said. "It's not an easy one to react."
