Finally, something went right for the Rangers at Mellon Arena.

“Every person was paying the price and playing hard,” said Olli Jokinen, who scored at 1:02 of overtime for a 3-2 win over the Penguins on Friday night, the Rangers’ first overtime victory of the season.

That included leading scorer Marian Gaborik, who sat out the final two periods after trying to play on his lacerated right thigh, and rookie defenseman Michael Del Zotto, who missed most of the game after suffering a deep gash on the left side of his rib cage.

The Rangers (27-27-7), who earlier acquired enforcer Jody Shelley and are in a 3-8-0 slump, lost their previous seven regular-season games at the Igloo, which opened in 1961 and will be replaced next season by the across-the-street Consol Energy Center. The Penguins (36-22-3) are 15-0-3 against the Rangers at home since April 13, 2006, including the 2008 playoffs.
