PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 23 shots to break a tie for Pittsburgh's career shutout record with 23, and the Penguins beat the New York Rangers 3-0 on Saturday for their eighth straight victory.
Beau Bennett, Pascal Dupuis and Tyler Kennedy scored, and Dustin Jeffrey added two assists as the Penguins continued to dominate the reeling Rangers. Pittsburgh has won seven consecutive meetings with New York, which lost for the fourth time in its last five games.
Fleury broke a tie with Tom Barrasso for the club shutout record.
Henrik Lundqvist made 24 saves for the Rangers, but New York failed to score for the third time this season. The Rangers, the best team in the Eastern Conference last spring, trail Pittsburgh by 14 points with six weeks left in the regular season.
BRUINS 4, CAPITALS 1
Bruins backup goaltender Anton Khudobin made 32 saves, and Lucic had a career-high three assists.
SENATORS 4, SABRES 3, OT
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Kyle Turris scored his second goal 3:54 into overtime to lift Ottawa past Buffalo.
The Senators also extended their string of games decided by one goal to 11, which is one short of matching the NHL record set by Chicago during the 1997-98 season.
Turris' goal came on the power play, after Christian Ehrhoff was penalized for interference.
WILD 6, AVALANCHE 4
DENVER (AP) — Devin Setoguchi scored twice and added the 100th assist of his NHL career to help Minnesota hold off slumping Colorado.
Ryan Suter started a four-goal scoring spree in the first period and the Wild went on to win for the fourth time in five games. Cal Clutterbuck, Kyle Brodziak and Pierre-Marc Bouchard added goals for Minnesota, coming off a 5-3 home victory over Colorado on Thursday night.
