NEWARK, N.J. – Dany Sabourin recorded his first shutout Monday night in a 5-0 Penguins win over New Jersey.
Sabourin stopped all 20 shots he faced to earn his first-career NHL shutout.
Sidney Crosby banged a rebound past Martin Brodeur with 7:51 left in the first period for a power-play goal. Petr Sykora and Sergei Gonchar both had assists.
It pushed Crosby’s point streak to a career-best 13 games and increased the Penguins’ streak with a power-play goal to 14 games. That matched the 1988-89 Penguins’ streak of power-play goals in 14-straight games to start the season.
Adam Hall deflected Brooks Orpik’s shot past Brodeur with 3:41 on the clock for a 2-0 lead. Max Talbot had the other assist.
Petr Sykora made it a 3-0 game 5:48 into the second period. Evgeni Malkin stole a puck in the New Jersey zone, was hauled down and, from his knees, sent a no-look pass to the slot, where Sykora slammed it past Brodeur.
Erik Christensen found the back of the net with 8:42 left in the period. He worked a 2-on-1 with Talbot and ripped the puck past Brodeur. Georges Laraque earned an assist on the play.
Crosby one-timed an Orpik pass behind Brodeur just 3:28 into the third period for a 5-0 lead.
