UNIONDALE, N.Y., Oct. 25 (UPI) -- Marc-Andre Fleury stopped all 33 shots he faced Tuesday, backstopping the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 3-0 whitewash of the New York Islanders.

Richard Park doubled Pittsburgh's advantage with 21 seconds left in the middle frame and Jordan Staal chipped in an empty-netter as the Penguins notched their fourth straight win.

Evgeni Nabokov turned aside 26-of-28 shots for the Islanders.
