PITTSBURGH (AP) -Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 33 shots, Petr Sykora had a goal and an assist and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the New York Rangers 3-0 on Sunday.

Sidney Crosby was back in the Penguins' lineup after sitting out Friday's game with an apparent knee injury. He missed a penalty shot early in the second period and his five-game scoring streak ended. Crosby was hurt during Wednesday's loss to Washington.

Fleury posted his second shutout of the season and 13th of his career. Chris Minard and Tyler Kennedy also scored for Pittsburgh.

The Penguins have won three of their last four games and moved back into playoff position in the Eastern Conference.

The Rangers were shut out for the third time this season and their three-game winning streak ended. New York hasn't won in regulation at Mellon Arena in the past 12 games, including the playoffs.
