Recap


Marc-Andre Fleury made 33 saves en route to his first shutout of the season as the Pittsburgh Penguins picked up their fourth consecutive victory, 3-0 over the host New York Islanders on Tuesday.

Pascal Dupuis scored his third goal and Richard Park added his second for the Penguins, who welcomed Evgeni Malkin back to the lineup after a five-game absence.

Fleury was under fire all night, turning away double-digit shots in each period, but did a strong job of controlling the rebounds in his 20th career shutout.

Pittsburgh, which has outscored the competition 14-4 during its winning streak, jumped on the board late in the first period when Dupuis went in on a breakaway and wristed it past Evgeni Nabakov’s right shoulder.

The Penguins did not waste any time making it 2-0 in the second period as Park collected a turnover in the New York zone and knocked it off Nabakov’s left shoulder at 21 seconds.

Jordan Staal added an empty-net tally, with Dupuis picking up the assist.

Nabakov finished with 25 saves.
