VIDEO: Penguins' Kessel buries own rebound for OT winner

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports / Reuters

Phil Kessel scored in overtime to lead the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 2-1 victory over the Nashville Predators on Saturday.

Kessel circled back toward his own end and flew by the Predators before burying his own rebound past Preds goalie Pekka Rinne for the game-winner. It's his third goal of the season.

Evgeni Malkin picked up his fourth assist on the goal, as the Penguins improved to 4-4-0.

The goal came with some controversy, as the Predators believe Malkin tripped Filip Forsberg on the play.

Despite the loss, the Predators sit atop the Central Division at 6-1-1.
