Pittsburgh ended a two-game skid, getting 32 saves from Marc-Andre Fleury.

The game's only regulation goals both came in the first period.

Brett Sterling, making his Pittsburgh debut after being called up earlier in the day from Wilkes-Barre of the American Hockey League, gave the Penguins the lead 6:53 into the contest.

Sterling had two brief stints with Atlanta before being acquired by the Penguins and this was just his third NHL goal in 20 career appearances.

Jarret Stoll tied it for Los Angeles with 2:43 to go in the first. Quick stopped 24 shots in taking the loss and the Kings fell to 2-0-2 on their current 10-game road trip.
