EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored two goals, including the winner in overtime, and added an assist as the Edmonton Oilers came from behind to stun the Eastern Conference-leading Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3 on Friday night.

The Oilers had a power play to start the overtime session and Jordan Eberle made a perfect pass to Nugent-Hopkins, who snapped the puck into a wide-open net 1:01 into extra time.

Taylor Hall and Anton Belov also scored for the Oilers, who won for just the fourth time in 15 games.

James Neal, Sidney Crosby and Kris Letang scored for the Penguins, who had their three-game win streak halted. It was just Pittsburgh's third loss in 15 games.
