Avs blow lead and fall to Penguins

PITTSBURGH (AP) - James Neal had a goal and two assists as the Pittsburgh Penguins rallied past the Colorado Avalanche 6-3 on Tuesday night.

Jordan Staal, Evgeni Malkin, Brooks Orpik, Pascal Dupuis and Kris Letang also scored for the Penguins, who scored four times in the third period against Colorado's Semyon Varlamov to overcome an early 3-1 deficit.

Neal's power-play goal, his 12th tally of the season, in the third gave him at least one goal in each of Pittsburgh's eight home games this season.

Marc-Andre Fleury shook off a rocky first period to finish with 24 saves.

Jay McClement, Matt Duchene and David Jones all scored first-period goals for the Avalanche, who lost to an Eastern Conference team for the first time this season.
