NHL: Pittsburgh 4, Anaheim 3

Nov. 4, 2009 at 1:19 AM   |   Comments

ANAHEIM, Calif., Nov. 4 (UPI) -- Marc-Andre Fleury made 26 saves and Pascal Dupuis scored the game-winner for the Pittsburgh Penguins, who beat Anaheim 4-3 Tuesday.

The Penguins, who are 7-0-0 outside the Steel City, also had goals from Alex Goligoski, Michael Rupp and Kris Letang.

Corey Perry had two goals and Saku Koivu scored once for the Ducks, who continued to struggle with one win in seven games. Jonas Hiller faced 27 shots.

The third period was an eventful one with the two teams combining for three goals in a span of 1:18.

Goligoski gave Pittsburgh a 3-2 lead at 7:55, but the Ducks tied the game 19 seconds later when Koivu stuffed the puck past Fleury from the right post. Dupuis netted the game-winner less than a minute later with a slapshot that flew through heavy traffic in front of Hiller and into the net with 10:47 left in the contest.

Anaheim mounted a furious empty-net attack in the closing minutes but Fleury stood fast with some help from Sidney Crosby, who made a sliding save on what would have been the tying goal with Fleury out of the crease.
