PITTSBURGH (AP) The goals kept coming. One after another. A dizzying three periods of shots followed by baffled goaltenders fishing pucks out of the net wondering how things got out of hand so quickly.

When Pittsburgh's Conor Sheary ended it 34 seconds into overtime to give the Penguins a chaotic 8-7 victory over the Washington Capitals, Sheary's teammates darted for the tunnel while Washington stood on the bench a little dumbstruck after their nine-game winning streak came to an abrupt - if highly entertaining - halt.

"I actually heard the crowd started yelling because I was just digging at it and I was kind of face down on the ice," Sheary said after getting his 13th goal of the season . "Luckily it went in."
