Jokinen leads Penguins by Rangers 2-1 in shootout

Posted: Updated:

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Jussi Jokinen certainly knows how to make an entrance.

The newly acquired Pittsburgh forward scored a goal in regulation in his debut and then added the only tally in the shootout as the Penguins edged the New York Rangers 2-1 on Friday night.

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 34 shots and then stoned Rick Nash, Mats Zuccarello and Ryan Callahan in the shootout as Pittsburgh snapped a 2-game losing streak following a 15-game winning run.

Fleury was at the top of his game just two nights after he allowed all the goals in the Rangers' 6-1 home victory over the Penguins.

Jokinen, acquired in a trade with Carolina just before Wednesday's NHL trade deadline, beat Henrik Lundqvist with a wrist shot 32 seconds into the third period.

Nash's 14th goal tied it with 4:49 remaining, but the Rangers couldn't complete the sweep of the home & home series.
