Penguins rally by weary Winnipeg, 6-5

(Continued)

PITTSBURGH —

Scheifele made it 2-0 with just 4 seconds left in the first on a knuckler that Fleury couldn’t get a handle on.

All it did was set the stage for a furious second period in which the teams combined to score seven times on just 24 shots.

A Winnipeg turnover led to a nasty wrist shot from Malkin for his first goal since Dec. 14. Neal followed by scoring twice in 34 seconds to give Pittsburgh the lead.

The Jets, however, would not go away. Kane beat Fleury twice, beating Fleury with a beautiful backhand on a breakaway then emerging from a mad scramble to flip the puck over Fleury with 17 seconds left in the second to put Pittsburgh’s home streak in serious jeopardy.

For a few minutes anyway. Malkin tied it at 5 by stuffing in a rebound 8:29 into the third period and Niskanen put the Penguins in front for good with a slap shot from the point that eluded Montoya.

Fleury made a pair of big stops in the final minute, including getting a glove on a wrist shot by Scheifele with 3 seconds remaining.

NOTES: Bylsma is 232-104-26 in four-plus seasons with the Penguins. Johnston went 232-224-80 in two different stints with Pittsburgh ... The Penguins begin a three-game trip through Western Canada on Tuesday in Vancouver. ... The Jets finished their three-game East Coast swing 0-3 ... Penguins D Kris Letang had an assists in 24:31 of ice time after missing 10 games with an elbow injury.
