COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Marc-Andre Fleury became the 20th NHL goalie with 350 victories and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-2 Friday night.
Kris Letang, Chris Kunitz and Carl Hagelin scored for Pittsburgh, and Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel each had two assists. The Penguins jumped ahead of Detroit for the first wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference.
Fleury made 11 of his 25 saves in the third period.
Gregory Campbell had a goal and an assist and Cam Atkinson also scored for the Blue Jackets, who came into the game with points in 12 of their last 15 games. Sergei Bobrovksy made 28 saves in his first action since Jan. 21. The former Vezina Trophy winner missed the previous 19 games recovering from his third groin injury this season that has limited him to only 28 games.
