Fleury gets fourth shutout as Penguins beat Sabres 3-0

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 24 shots for his fourth shutout and Chris Kunitz and Deryk Engelland scored second-period goals, helping the Pittsburgh Penguins defeat the Buffalo Sabres 3-0 Monday night.

Kunitz scored his 26th goal and Engelland netted his fourth. Tanner Glass scored his first goal in 26 games, a late empty-netter that sealed it for the Penguins, who won for the 15th time in 16 games at home.

Sidney Crosby, who leads the NHL with 73 points, added an assist to extend his points streak in games against Buffalo to 16 games, matching his longest streak against any team.

Fleury, who leads the NHL with 29 wins, registered his 27th career shutout.

Ryan Miller stopped 31 shots for last-place Buffalo, which has lost seven of nine.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
