Murray scores late in OT to lift Jackets over Pens

Sunday, 09.15.2013 / 10:05 PM

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Rookie defenseman Ryan Murray scored 4:38 into overtime to lift the Columbus Blue Jackets past the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-4 on Sunday night in the preseason opener for both teams.

Murray took a feed from R.J. Umberger and beat backup goalie Jeff Zatkott. Murray was the No. 2 pick in the 2012 NHL draft but missed the season with a shoulder injury.

Chuck Kobasew got Pittsburgh even 4-4 at 13:05 of the third period with a power-play goal - his second tally of the game. Mark Letestu and Cam Atkinson scored 30 seconds apart earlier in the period to give Columbus a 4-3 lead.

Dustin Jeffrey's power-play goal for Pittsburgh had made it 3-2 at 4:19.

Pittsburgh's James Neal opened the scoring 47 seconds in. Columbus' Artem Anisimov and James Wisniewski had goals in the first period.

Marc-Andre Fleury allowed two goals on 12 shots, and Curtis McElhinney made 24 saves for the Blue Jackets in two periods of work.
