Tanev scores OT winner, Penguins deal Avalanche first loss

PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan believes his undermanned Penguins can beat any team right now, despite missing five of their top nine forwards.

The Penguins proved it on Wednesday night by knocking off the Colorado Avalanche, the league's last unbeaten team.

Brandon Tanev scored a short-handed goal in overtime and the Penguins beat Colorado 3-2.
