Penguins coach Dan Bylsma picked up his 100th NHL win Thursday night, but he easily could have gotten confused and thought he was back in the American Hockey League. With a lineup studded with call--ups from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL, the Penguins halted a two-game losing streak with a 2-1 overtime win against Los Angeles at Consol Energy Center. Center Jordan Staal, who had repeated looks at the net late in regulation and in overtime, buried one past Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick with 18.4 seconds left in overtime, but the Penguins would have had a tough time winning without several new players. Among the four players who arrived from the AHL the night before, Brett Sterling scored the game's first goal, Nick Johnson helped set up that goal, Ryan Craig gave the Penguins a spark with a spirited fight, and Joe Vitale laid out four hits in his NHL debut.
