Montreal falls 1-0 to streaking Penguins


PITTSBURGH - The Pittsburgh Penguins extended their winning streak to 13 games with a 1-0 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday.

Sidney Crosby scored the game’s only goal late in the second period and Pittsburgh goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury stopped all 22 shots he faced but did not play in the third period following a collision in front of the net. Tomas Vokoun filled in and made 15 saves to give Pittsburgh just the fourth combined shutout in franchise history.

Crosby finally broke through in a tight game with 6:41 remaining in the second period, taking a long lead pass from Chris Kunitz then sending a wrist shot from the right circle over Price’s right shoulder for his 15th goal of the season.

Rangers winger Rick Nash scored twice and Derek Stepan had a goal and three assists as New York extended its dominance of the Philadelphia Flyers with a 5-2 win. AP
