NHL: Washington 1, Pittsburgh 0

Jan. 11, 2012 at 10:24 PM   |   Comments

WASHINGTON, Jan. 11 (UPI) -- Tomas Vokoun stopped 30 shots to record his second shutout of the season Wednesday, bringing the Washington Capitals a 1-0 win over Pittsburgh.

The 14-year veteran goaltender is in his first season with the Capitals after spending the previous four with Florida. He has 46 shutouts in 662 career games. His single-season high has been seven, established two years ago.

Washington extended Pittsburgh's losing streak to six games, a slump that has seen the Penguins tumble 12 points behind the division-leading New York Rangers.

The game's only goal came from Jason Chimera with 4:35 to go in the opening period. It was his 14th of the season.

Marc-Andre Fleury made 20 saves in taking the loss. The Penguins have scored no more than one goal in any of their last five games.
