NHL: Pittsburgh 3, Montreal 1

Oct. 20, 2011 at 10:01 PM   |   Comments

PITTSBURGH, Oct. 20 (UPI) -- Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 28 shots and just missed out on what would have been his 20th career shutout Thursday in carrying Pittsburgh past Montreal 3-1.

Fleury did not allow a goal until Brian Gionta beat him with a slap shot with 1:36 to play in the third period.

The Penguins won their second in a row and handed the Canadiens their fourth consecutive loss. Montreal has just one win in six games this season.

James Neal put Pittsburgh in front midway through the first period with his seventh goal of the season. Joe Vitale and Arron Asham both tipped in a shot to produce their first goals -- Vitale's coming 2:39 into the second and Asham's 5:20 into the third.

Carey Price made 29 saves for Montreal, but saw his record drop to 1-4.
