Penguins Top Coyotes In Overtime
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Phil Kessel scored on a power play at 4:09 of overtime, Matt Murray stopped 30 shots and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Arizona Coyotes 3-2 on Friday night. Outscored 10-4 in consecutive losses, Pittsburgh fell behind on Clayton Keller's first-period goal following a flurry of penalties. The Penguins rallied in the second when Jusso Riikola and Jake Guentzel scored 40 seconds apart, but Derek Stepan scored with 5 1/2 minutes left in the third to tie it. Pittsburgh had a 4 on 3 in overtime when Richard Panik was called for slashing and Kessel cashed in, redirecting Sidney Crosby's shot from the point past Darcy Kuemper. Penguins coach Mike Sullivan was not pleased with his team's effort in a loss to San Jose on Tuesday, their second straight by a 5-2 score. He could not have been thrilled with Pittsburgh's parade to the penalty box in the first period against the Coyotes. Pittsburgh had four penalties in the opening 20 minutes, including two on the same shift. The Coyotes didn't score on the 5-on-3, but Keller did shortly after it ended, one-timing a pass from Oliver Ekman-Larsson to beat Murray stick side on a 4 on 3. The Penguins had a big push at the end of the first period and quickly took the lead on goals 40 seconds apart. Riikola had the first one on a power play, firing a shot from just inside the blue line that Kuemper couldn't see through traffic. Guentzel put Pittsburgh ahead on a rebound of his own shot, lifting it over Kuemper from a tough angle. Arizona appeared to tie it early in the third period when Panik poked a loose puck past a prone Murray. The Penguins challenged the play and the officials called Ekman-Larsson for goalie interference after clipping Murray with his skate.

Chiefs Safety Eric Berry Expects To Play Vs. Patriots
UNDATED (AP) - Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry is sounding confident that he will be on the field for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against New England at Arrowhead Stadium. Berry has been a full participant in practice this week after dealing with a bothersome heel. He needs the OK from coach Andy Reid to take the field on Sunday night. The three-time All-Pro began to experience a mysterious heel injury during training camp and didn't play until Week 15 against the Chargers. Berry played more the following week in Seattle, but the injury recurred and he missed the regular-season finale against Oakland and the divisional round matchup against Indianapolis.
