Guentzel’s goal at 18:29 was his second of the season.

“We have a resilient group,” Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said. “These guys, especially the core guys in the leadership group, have been through a lot. If they’re in a one-, or two-goal game, they know they’re capable of winning those games.”

Pittsburgh trailed 2-1 entering the third period before Jared McCann and Guentzel scored in the final 20 minutes, extending the Penguins’ win streak to four games after two opening losses. It was Pittsburgh’s fourth straight comeback win, tying the longest such streak in franchise history. The Penguins have had four straight comebacks six times.

“We’re developing that confidence, knowing that it doesn’t matter how many goals we’re down, or what the situation of the game is, we can always make a push to come back,” Rust said.

Colin Blackwell and Ryan Strome scored for the Rangers, who held a 3-1 lead against Pittsburgh on Friday before losing in a shootout. Igor Shesterkin stopped 16 shots for the Rangers.

GUENTZEL HITS A MILESTONE

Guentzel’s slap shot from the top of the circle beat Shesterkin between the pads for the game-winner. He became the 17th player in team history and the 10th-fastest to record their first 100 goals with Pittsburgh.

“Obviously, it’s a cool honour, and we’re fortunate that it was the game-winner,” Guentzel said. “It’s a big goal for us. Any chance to get two points is definitely big.”

SPARKING THE OFFENSE

Penguins F Evan Rodrigues left the game midway through the second period following a collision with Rangers F Filip Chytil.

With Rodrigues in the dressing room, Rust was promoted to the top line, alongside Guentzel and Sidney Crosby, and he tied the game at 1-all on the next shift. Rust, who extended his point streak to five games, took a lead pass from Crosby and beat Shesterkin between the pads on a breakaway.

“When we made the change and put (Rust) with (Crosby) and (Guentzel), they had instant success,” Sullivan said. “Those guys have been familiar with one another and they played together for a long period of time.”

LETTING ANOTHER ONE GO

New York Rangers’ coach David Quinn lamented allowing another lead slip away against Pittsburgh — the second time in as many games.

The Penguins scrambled back from a two-goal deficit to beat New York in a shootout on Friday. Pittsburgh scored twice in the third period to defeat the Rangers in regulation on Sunday, as New York opened the season with one win in its first five games.

“You just have to find ways to win,” Quinn said. “We’ve been talking about the good things that we did, but you’ve got to win hockey games. To come here and play some good hockey and come away with one point is really disappointing.”

Pittsburgh, which closed a four-game homestand, travels to Boston on Tuesday for the start of a four-game trip.

The New York Rangers continue a four-game trip Tuesday at Buffalo. The Rangers will host Pittsburgh for a two-game set on Jan. 30 and Feb. 1 at Madison Square Garden.

Flyers' Morgan Frost to undergo shoulder surgery, miss 'months' .
Frost was scoreless in two contests this year, which could be the only two games he plays given the seriousness of his injury. Frost is still under contract for next season but now faces the very real possibility of heading into a 2022 offseason as a restricted free agent without much NHL time under his belt. While some may consider that a blessing for the Flyers, who will likely be able to re-sign the young forward for a relatively small amount, they would certainly rather have him playing and developing this season.
