PITTSBURGH, Dec. 9 (UPI) -- Marc-Andre Fleury carried a shutout into the third period Monday, finishing with 32 saves in the Pittsburgh Penguins' 2-1 win over Columbus.

Fleury blanked the Blue Jackets until 56 seconds were left in the regulation, when Columbus added a sixth attacker and finally dented him on a score by Matt Calvert.

Seconds earlier, he just missed scoring an empty-net goal with a rink-length shot.

Fleury improved to 11-2-0 at home as the Penguins notched a sixth win in seven games.

Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby scored the Pittsburgh goals.

Curtis McElhinney stopped 28-of-30 shots for Columbus.
