NEW YORK -- Undersized and undrafted out of the University of Massachusetts, Conor Sheary learned how to recognize and seize opportunities that revealed his potential long before he made his NHL debut in December.

Almost 40 years old, Matt Cullen proved fairly early in his 18th season in the league and first with the Penguins that he still possesses a knack for crafty, timely contributions.

Cullen broke a third-period tie when he bounced a puck off New York defenseman Marc Staal's skate, and Sheary scored twice in the Penguins' 5-3 win over the Rangers on Sunday at Madison Square Garden.

The performance marked the first career multi-goal game for Sheary, who last found the back of the net on Feb. 8.

Sheary's goals came during a second period in which the Penguins surged after a lethargic first frame. New York busied goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury with four shots just two minutes into the game. All came from the faceoff circles or closer. Not until Justin Schultz sent a slap shot at Rangers netminder Henrik Lundqvist almost three minutes into the first period did the Penguins even register a shot.

"We certainly didn't have the start that we wanted to, that's for sure," Sullivan said. "I thought Marc had some huge saves early in the game that gave us a chance to get our legs under us. He gave us a chance to win."

Blasts by Schultz from near the blue line loosened up the Rangers' defenders, but a shot from behind the goal line put the Penguins on the scoreboard. …
