PITTSBURGH, Nov. 12 (UPI) -- Marc-Andre Fleury allowed only a third-period goal and had to make just 15 saves Friday in bringing the Pittsburgh Penguins a 5-1 victory over Tampa Bay.

After a scoreless first period, the Penguins were able to put five shots past Mike Smith in a mere 20 attempts.

Pascal Dupuis and Alex Goligoski gave Pittsburgh a 2-0 advantage in the second period.

Steven Stamkos reduced the Tampa Bay deficit to one 5:30 into the third period with his 15th goal of the season, but Maxime Talbot, Sidney Crosby and Deryk Engelland scored in a span of 6:38 to turn the game into a rout.

Crosby's goal was his 11th.

Tampa Bay has lost two in a row and five out of six. The Lightning learned earlier in the day that captain Vincent Lecavalier would miss at least three weeks with a non-displaced fracture in his right hand.
