Fleury, Penguins top Devils 2-0 for 3rd straight win

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 25 shots for his fourth shutout of the season and the surging Pittsburgh Penguins beat the New Jersey Devils 2-0 on Tuesday night.

Sidney Crosby got his 17th goal of the year for the Penguins. The two-time MVP has scored in each of Pittsburgh’s last seven home games, the longest home scoring streak of his career.

Phil Kessel added an insurance goal, and the Penguins have won four of five to draw even with the Devils for eighth place in the Eastern Conference heading into the All-Star break.

Cory Schneider made 29 saves for the Devils, who saw their four-game winning streak snapped. New Jersey went 0 for 4 on the power play, managing just one shot on goal during 8 minutes with the man advantage.
