Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - Sidney Crosby scored the game's only goal,
Marc-Andre Fleury and Tomas Vokoun teamed up for a 37-save shutout and the
Pittsburgh Penguins extended their win streak to 13 games with a hard-earned
1-0 verdict over the Montreal Canadiens at CONSOL Energy Center.
Fleury turned aside all 25 shots he faced before exiting after two periods
following a collision with teammate Tyler Kennedy, with Vokoun making 12 saves
in relief to help enable the red-hot Penguins to record their second longest
unbeaten stretch in franchise history, topped only by an NHL-record 17-game
run during the 1992-93 season.
Nine of those triumphs have come without the services of reigning Hart Trophy
recipient Evgeni Malkin, who remains sidelined with a shoulder injury.
Carey Price took the hard-luck loss for Northeast Division co-leader Montreal,
which dropped back-to-back outings in regulation for the first time all
season. The Canadiens' backstop stopped 24-of-25 chances on the evening.
