SUNRISE, Fla., April 2 (UPI) -- Pittsburgh's Brent Johnson stopped 28-of-30 shots Saturday and the Penguins bested Florida 4-2.

Tyler Kennedy and Pascal Dupuis tallied earlier and Craig Adams added an empty-netter for the Pens, who pulled within two points of Philadelphia atop the Eastern Conference.

Jack Skille and Clay Wilson scored and Scott Clemmensen stopped 30-of-33 for the Panthers.
