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

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
