Letang's OT winner caps rally as Penguins stun Avalanche 2-1

PITTSBURGH (AP) Kris Letang scored 3:36 into overtime to cap a frantic rally as the Pittsburgh Penguins stunned the Colorado Avalanche 2-1 on Tuesday night.

The Avalanche controlled long stretches of regulation before Bryan Rust tied it with 3:38 remaining in the third period. The Penguins killed a penalty in overtime before Letang won it with a shot from the left circle.

Letang nearly won it earlier in the extra period when he jammed a portion of the puck over the goal line. Colorado goaltender Pavel Francouz managed to push it back out of harm's way before it made it all the way over. Francouz couldn't do the same minutes later when Letang wound up and blasted a shot that became his fifth goal of the season.
