CALGARY, Alberta, Jan. 12 (UPI) -- Marc-Andre Fleury
took a shutout into the third period Saturday and the Pittsburgh Penguins held on for a 2-1 victory over Calgary.
Fluery turned aside 27-of-28 shots, allowing just a Mikael Backlund goal with 8:31 remaining in the final period.
Chris Kunitz and Matt Niskanen scored for the Eastern Conference-leading Pens, who bounced back after Friday's overtime loss in Edmonton.
Backlund's goal snapped a 196-minute, 59-second home-ice scoring drought for the Flames, but wasn't enough to prevent their 11th loss in 13 games overall.
Reto Berra made 24 saves.
