Penguins Take Care of Business 3-0 Over Buffalo

Updated: Tuesday, January 28 2014, 12:54 AM EST

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Penguins are still determined to finish as the NHL's best team — despite a recent slump.

The Penguins rebounded from a loss on Saturday and beat the league's worst team on Monday night as goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 24 shots for his fourth shutout, a 3-0 win against the Buffalo Sabres.

"When you play 82 every one isn't going to be perfect, but we're trying to be the best, not just into late June, but every game," Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma said.

Chris Kunitz scored his 26th goal and Deryk Engelland netted his fourth, equaling a career high.Tanner Glass scored his first goal in 26 games, a late empty-netter that sealed it for the Penguins, who won for the 15th time in 16 games at home.

Sidney Crosby, who leads the NHL with 74 points, added two assists to extend his points streak in games against Buffalo to 16 games, matching his longest streak against any team.

Fleury, who leads the NHL with 29 wins, registered his 27th career shutout, tied for second in the league. He helped preserve the win, denying Buffalo's Brian Flynn two minutes into the third period before following it up with a right-pad stop on Matt Moulsonon a partial breakaway a couple minutes later.
