Sidney Crosby scores, Marc-Andre Fleury nearly perfect again in Penguins' 4-1 win over Sabres

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Sidney Crosby and Chuck Kobasew both scored their second goal of the season and Marc-Andre Fleury was nearly perfect again, making 20 saves to lead the Pittsburgh Penguins over the Buffalo Sabres 4-1 on Saturday night.

Craig Adams also scored his second goal and Chris Kunitz converted a penalty shot to help the Penguins open 2-0 for the third straight season. Pittsburgh defenceman Matt Niskanen added two assists and forward Pascal Dupuis, playing in his 800th game, also had an assist.

Fleury has sparkled through two games, turning aside 47 of 48 shots. He earned his 250th career victory and 24th shutout with a 3-0 win Thursday against New Jersey.

Thomas Vanek spoiled Fleury's bid for another shutout at 15:06 of the third period.

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
