NEW YORK (AP) - Sidney Crosby scored a power-play goal with 3.3 seconds left, his fourth point of the game, and the Pittsburgh Penguins pulled out a wild 6-5 victory over the New York Rangers on Thursday night.

Crosby fired a pass from the right-wing boards, while Rangers captain Jaromir Jagr sat in the penalty box, that struck someone in front and ricocheted in. Earlier the 19-year-old phenom set up three goals for Pittsburgh, which had six goals on 22 shots.

Jagr was left hanging his head while Crosby happily skated across the ice and looked up at the board to see how timely his goal was.

The Penguins went 1-1 at home to start the season, each a shutout, before winning their first road game. Pittsburgh finished last in the Eastern Conference last season with only 10 wins away from the Steel City.

Jordan Staal, the No. 2 pick in this year's draft, and Kris Letang each scored their first NHL goals for Pittsburgh, while Ryan Whitney scored his first two of the season and Michel Ouellet added one.

Marc-Andre Fleury allowed goals to Jagr, Matt Cullen, Adam Hall, Michael Nylander - each scoring their second of the season - and Brendan Shanahan but still made 37 saves against the Rangers, who recorded three goals on 18 shots in the second period.

After a scoreless first period, the teams combined for six goals in the second with Pittsburgh getting three on only seven shots.

Whitney gave the Penguins a 5-4 lead 1:01 into the third, again with Jagr in the box. Nylander tied it at 6:09 with another power-play goal, this time on a 5-on-3.

What a killer for the Rangers. Having that fluke goal go in, and with only 3.3 seconds left as well.

And at home. It sounded really bad... at least from the highlights on NHL Network.
