Oct. 5, 2013 at 10:07 PM

PITTSBURGH, Oct. 5 (UPI) -- Marc-Andre Fleury extended his hot start to the season Saturday, posting 20 saves in the Pittsburgh Penguins' 4-1 victory over Buffalo.

Fleury, who notched a shutout over New Jersey in Thursday's season opener, nearly recorded a second one in as many games before finally surrendering a goal with 4:54 left in the game.

Goals from Sidney Crosby and Chuck Kobasew in the first period got Pittsburgh off to a fast start. Chris Kunitz scored on a penalty shot and Craig Adams added an empty-netter for the Penguins.

The Sabres, meanwhile, dropped a third straight beginning the season.

Thomas Vanek had their only goal. Jhonas Enroth allowed three goals on 34 shots.
