Sutter gave the Penguins a 3-1 lead just 1:01 after Pascal Dupuis snapped a 1-1 tie, but Pittsburgh couldn’t hold the edge. It took until the fifth round of the shootout for the deadlock to be broken for good, and the Penguins skated off with their fifth straight victory.

Dupuis gave the Penguins their second lead of the night, off a feed from Sidney Crosby, at 5:25, and Sutter used a strong individual effort to make it 3-1 at 6:26. Chris Kunitz had a goal and assist, Crosby had two assists to increase his NHL-leading points total 49, and Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 29 shots.
