Fleury collects NHL-high 5th shutout as Penguins top reeling Devils 1-0

NHL.com @NHL

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 29 shots for his NHL-leading fifth shutout as the Pittsburgh Penguins edged the New Jersey Devils 1-0 on Tuesday night.

Fleury matched his career high for shutouts in a season and was rarely tested by the Devils, who have just one victory in their last eight games.

Evgeni Malkin scored the game's only goal 3:32 into the third period, taking a feed from Blake Comeau and tucking it under Cory Schneider's outstretched arm for his 12th score of the season.

Schneider made 22 saves but received little help. New Jersey generated few quality chances against Fleury, who has won six straight at home against the Devils.

New Jersey forward Jaromir Jagr left in the second period following a vicious collision with Pittsburgh's Robert Bortuzzo. Scott Gomez played 22 minutes in his return to the Devils after being signed on Monday.
