Sidney Crosby scored the tying goal in the third period and then won it with a brilliant individual effort 3 minutes, 44 seconds into overtime as the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the New York Islanders, 3-2, on Tuesday night in Uniondale, N.Y.

Crosby, who tied it with a power-play goal with 12 minutes remaining in regulation, stole the puck just outside the New York blue line, streaked down the middle between two defensemen, and jammed a backhander past goalie Anders Nilsson for his 15th goal this season.

Nilsson was the hard-luck loser in overtime for the second consecutive game.

Kari Lehtonen had a season-high 47 saves, Antoine Roussel converted a penalty shot in the third period, and the Dallas Stars snapped host Chicago's six-game winning streak.

Red Wings ailing

Henrik Zetterberg will miss at least two weeks with a back injury, leaving the Detroit Red Wings without their top two scorers.

Fellow center Pavel Datsyuk remains out because of a concussion.
