PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 19 (UPI) -- Marc-Andre Fleury's 26 saves Saturday made him Pittsburgh's winningest goalie and the Penguins opened the abbreviated season with a 3-1 win over Philadelphia.

Fleury claimed his 227th career win -- bypassing Tom Barrasso for the franchise record -- and the Penguins renewed their Atlantic Division rivalry with the Flyers in the season opener for both teams.

Chris Kunitz, James Neal and Tyler Kennedy also scored for the Penguins, who fell to Philadelphia in the first round of last season's playoffs.

Claude Giroux scored and Ilya Bryzgalov turned aside 24 shots for the Flyers.
