NHL: San Jose 5, Pittsburgh 0

Nov. 8, 2009 at 3:29 AM

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 8 (UPI) -- San Jose goaltender Evgeni Nabokov stopped all 27 shots Saturday as the Sharks shut out the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-0.

Nabokov earned his second shutout of the year while sparking the Sharks to their seventh win in eight games in a lop-sided affair in which Joe Pavelski, Dan Boyle and Manny Malhotra each notched a goal and an assist.

The Sharks' other goals came from Dany Heatley and Jamie McGinn.

San Jose's stifling defense kept Penguins star Sidney Crosby from scoring in the fourth straight game Crosby has gone without a point.

Pittsburgh goalie Marc-Andre Fleury was yanked by Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma early in the second period after he allowed three goals on 14 shots. Replacement goalie Brent Johnson let in two goals on 21 shots.
