TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 29 (UPI) -- Two goals by Chris Kunitz and a perfect performance from Marc-Andre Fleury Friday brought Pittsburgh a 3-0 victory over Tampa Bay.

It was the third shutout of the season for Fleury, tying him for the NHL lead, and the 26th of his decade-long career.

Kunitz opened the scoring 6:53 into the game and Fleury protected the one-goal lead until Brandon Sutter tallied on the power play midway through the third. Kunitz tacked on an empty-net goal with 1:43 to play.

Sidney Crosby assisted on all three goals, increasing his league-leading points total to 36. He has 701 points for his career.

Ben Bishop took the loss while making 28 saves.
