PITTSBURGH (AP) — Dmitry Orlov scored his second goal of the game in the final minute of overtime to give the Washington Capitals a 4-3 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night.

Orlov scored at 4:17 of OT, beating goaltender Tristan Jarry on the blocker side with a wrist shot.

Nic Dowd scored a short-handed goal, and Daniel Sprong added a goal for the Capitals, who won their second straight game.

Washington has won five of its last nine games.

Ilya Samsonov made 43 saves for the Capitals. Samsonov replaced starter Vitek Vanecek, who left in the first period shortly after a collision with Penguins’ forward Kasperi Kapanen. Samsonov denied Sidney Crosby his 499th career goal, stopping a breakaway in overtime.

Pittsburgh scored three power-play goals. Bryan Rust had two and Evgeni Malkin one. Jake Guentzel had three assists and Crosby two. Jarry made 28 saves for the Penguins, who lost four straight games for the first time this season.

The Penguins have 17 power-play goals in their last 16 games. Pittsburgh has scored with the man advantage in eight of its last nine games overall.

Dowd opened the scoring at 5:50 of the first period with the Capitals’ sixth short-handed goal of the season. Malkin responded 36 seconds later with a power-play goal to tie the game.

Dowd beat Jarry on a breakaway following a turnover by Kris Letang at the offensive blue line, and Malkin scored on a pass from Guentzel. Malkin ended a streak of five straight games without a first-period goal for Pittsburgh.

Rust gave the Penguins a 2-1 lead at 11:26 of the first period with Pittsburgh’s second power-play goal. Malkin kept the puck in at the right point, allowing Rust to beat an out-of-position Samsonov for the goal.

Orlov tied the game for the Capitals with a power-play goal at 16:13 of the first.

The Penguins opened the second period with a 14-0 advantage in shots and a Rust power-play goal at 4:44. Crosby’s initial shot hit the post, but Rust stuffed the puck across the line from the side of the net. Rust has 12 goals and 23 points in his last 12 games.

Dowd appeared to tie it for Washington on the Capitals’ first shot of the period. Pittsburgh used its challenge and the goal was overturned because of goaltender interference.

The game was tied at 3-all heading into the third following Sprong’s goal at 19:18 of the second.

CROSBY VS. OVECHKIN

Crosby and Alex Ovechkin, one of the league’s longest-standing rivalries, met for the 61st time in the regular season.

Crosby has 28 goals and 84 points, while Ovechkin has 31 goals and 60 points, both in 61 games. Crosby and the Penguins are 36-22-3 against the Capitals.

Crosby and Ovechkin rank first in points against the Capitals and Penguins, respectively, among all active players. Crosby surpassed Guy Lafleur for 10th-most points against Washington all-time. He has seven goals and 16 points in his last 10 games. Ovechkin went without a point for the fourth straight game, a season-high.

MILESTONE WATCH

Crosby remains two goals shy of becoming the second active player (behind Ovechkin) and the 46th in NHL history to record 500 career regular-season goals.

Ovechkin is one goal from reaching the 30-goal plateau for the 16th time in his NHL career. Ovechkin trails only Mike Gartner (17) for most 30-goal seasons in NHL history.

MALKIN’S STREAK

Malkin continued his season-long nine-game point streak. It’s the second-longest active point streak in the league behind Minnesota’s Kevin Fiala and the third-longest by a Penguins player this season. It’s also Malkin’s 11th career point streak of nine-plus games, third-most among active players behind only Ovechkin and Crosby.

Malkin has five goals and 13 points since making his season debut on Jan. 11. He has points in all seven home games this season and points in 16 of his last 18 home games dating to last season.

Malkin’s 24 goals and 70 points against the Capitals are second-most among active players behind Crosby.

Bills Announce Surprise Decision on Von Millers Future

Getty Von Miller #40 of the Buffalo Bills dances during practice on August 05, 2022 in Orchard Park, New York.

Von Miller said earlier this week that he hoped to be back from a knee injury in a little over a week, but the Buffalo Bills apparently had other ideas.

The Bills announced on December 1 that Miller was headed to injured reserve, keeping him out for at least the next four games and freeing up a roster spot during his absence. Miller was hurt in the team’s 28-25 win over the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving, with initial fears that he may have suffered a season-ending ACL tear. While the injury didn’t turn out to be so serious, the All-Pro edge rusher will still be missing for a critical stretch of the season.

Bills Explain Surprise Move

With Miller headed to injured reserve, the Bills will now be without his services until at least Week 17 game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Though Miller had just one day prior expressed hope to be back for the Week 14 game against the New York Jets, Bills general manager Brandon Beane explained on Thursday that the team didn’t want to hurry his recovery process.

“We don’t want to rush him back,” Beane said, via Syracuse.com’s Matt Parrino on Twitter. “This gives us a chance to go ahead and count tonight’s game and three more on injured reserve. And hopefully we can get him back for the stretch run.”

Beane went on to say that while Miller may have wanted to come back sooner, the medical staff advocated for a more careful approach.

“The competitor in him – if (Von) could wheel it out there tonight, he would do it,” Beane said, via Parrino. “We just think in talking to the medical people that the best decision right now is to give this time, and that gives him the best opportunity to help us down the stretch.”

Bills Getting Healthier

Miller is not the only Bills starter dealing with an injury. The team announced on Wednesday that left tackle Dion Dawkins would also miss Thursday’s game against the Patriots, and tight end Quintin Morris was questionable with an illness.

But overall the team has gotten healthier after dealing with an early spate of injuries. All-Pro cornerback Tre’Davious White was able to return for the first time this season, playing in the Thanksgiving Day win over the Lions. White had suffered a torn ACL in the team’s Thanksgiving game last season and started the season on the physically-unable-to-perform list.

White only appeared in two series in the November 24 win, but head coach Sean McDermott said the team plans to gradually increase his workload.

“I think he got two series – about 15 to 20 plays, I don’t have a total count on what it ended up being,” McDermott said, via a report from Syracuse.com. “But that was in the range of what we thought. And now let’s build on it.”

Fellow cornerback Dane Jackson said it was a big boost to the team just having White back on the sidelines.

“Just to see him out there just gives me that extra like, I don’t know, it’s hard to explain,” he said. “He’s just so much of a leader on our team. All the young guys really look up to him. Just to have him out there just gives you that extra boost for sure.”
