PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Penguins are still determined to finish as the NHLs best team -- despite a recent slump. Andy Dalton Jersey . The Penguins rebounded from a loss on Saturday and beat the leagues worst team on Monday night as goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 24 shots for his fourth shutout, a 3-0 win against the Buffalo Sabres. "When you play 82 every one isnt going to be perfect, but were trying to be the best, not just into late June, but every game," Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma said. Chris Kunitz scored his 26th goal and Deryk Engelland netted his fourth, equaling a career high. Tanner Glass scored his first goal in 26 games, a late empty-netter that sealed it for the Penguins, who won for the 15th time in 16 games at home. Sidney Crosby, who leads the NHL with 74 points, added two assists to extend his points streak in games against Buffalo to 16 games, matching his longest streak against any team. Fleury, who leads the NHL with 29 wins, registered his 27th career shutout, tied for second in the league. He helped preserve the win, denying Buffalos Brian Flynn two minutes into the third period before following it up with a right-pad stop on Matt Moulson on a partial breakaway a couple minutes later. "The first one was pretty close, and I was worried he might have cut across, so I tried to take his options away," said Fleury, who is one victory away from reaching the 30-win mark for the fifth-straight full NHL season. "Moulson, I was trying to be patient because I know he has good hands," he added. Fleury was better on the play, giving his team a sorely-needed lift after a slow start to the period. "We chipped some pucks out in the beginning of the third period, kind of sitting back, and they shoved it right back at us," Bylsma said. "Marc got stuck with those two glorious chances against. the two great saves he had to make." The Penguins are in command of the Eastern Conference, leading Boston and Tampa Bay by seven points in addition to a 15-point cushion on the New York Rangers in the Metropolitan Division entering Monday. But Pittsburgh has struggled recently with a lacklustre home effort last Monday against Florida -- 15th in the 16-team Eastern Conference -- and a 3-0 loss Saturday at Dallas. It wasnt perfect, but the Penguins were able to turn it around on Monday. "We still had times when we werent getting pucks deep, turning it over, and giving them chances to get back into the game," Kunitz said. "Our goalie made a few great saves, a few that went through his body, couldve hit somebody and went in the other way." Goaltender Ryan Miller stopped 31 shots for last-place Buffalo, which has lost seven of nine. The Sabres, who scored at least three goals the previous six games, won for the first time five games on Saturday, scoring a 5-2 victory at Columbus and stopping the red-hot Blue Jackets franchise-record eight-game winning streak, but they couldnt sustain the momentum. "Were a team that we cant have glaring mistakes," Sabres coach Ted Nolan said. "Its very demoralizing. We woke up in the third period and made a push, but not good enough." The Penguins, after a scoreless opening period, scored at 14:16 of the second. Brian Gibbons, who missed five games with a lower-body injury, hit the post on a one-timer from Crosby. The red goal light behind the net momentarily turned on before Kunitz swept the rebound into a partially empty net. Engelland scored later in the period, forcing a turnover in the Sabres zone before lifting a pass from Glass over a sprawled Miller. That was good enough for the Penguins, who continue to try and perfect their stride despite leading the Eastern Conference. "We still need to get better as a team and grow," Kunitz said. "We have 30-some games before the playoffs to make sure were running on all cylinders, and make sure were the best team going into the playoffs."

The Goldeyes (60-35) fell 14-7 to the Saints (48-46) in front of 5,888 fans at Midway Stadium. The Saints, who struck first, scored one run in the first inning without a hit. They then opened up their lead with four more runs in the second to take a quick 5-0 lead. The Goldeyes response wasnt immediate, but in the top of the fifth inning, the Fish batters found their rhythm. Winnipeg would score seven runs in the inning to go up by two. The inning was highlighted by a Josh Mazzola grand slam. Mazzolas hit came on a 3-2 count, and he was able to drive in Donnie Webb, Reggie Abercrombie and Casey Haerther. "It was nice to have guys get on base and guys were having good patient at bats," said Goldeyes Pitching Coach Jamie Vermilyea on the Jewel 101 post game show. In the bottom of the same inning, the Saints would answer back with a two-run home run by Jake Taylor. At that point, the game was tied at seven. "We were able to put those seven runs on the board which was big for us," said Vermilyea. "But its tough to give that lead up after such a good inning, and then to come back again is even tougher." The Saints got another two-run homer in the sixth to reestablish ttheir lead. Jake Fisher Jersey. They then added three more runs in the seventh to extend their lead to five. The Saints werent done there, as they would tack on two insurance runs in the eighth inning, to take a 14-7 lead going into the final inning. In the last frame the Goldeyes couldnt muster a response, and went down in order. "These types of games are going to happen," said Vermilyea. "You just want to try and stay away from them happening this late in the year." Saints pitcher Dylan Thomas was able to come on in relief and earn the win. He went 2 2/3 innings, striking out two and didnt give up a run. Taylor Sewitt took the loss for the Goldeyes also in a relief position as he gave up two runs in 1 2/3 innings of work. The Goldeyes and Saints will play a rubber match as they wrap up their three game series on Thursday night at 7 p.m. The game will be the last ever Saints game at Midway Stadium. The team will play in a new downtown ballpark starting next season. "Theres going to be a lot of people here [tomorrow night] and it should be a good baseball game with a fun atmosphere," Vermilyea said. The Goldeyes return home on Friday to open their final series of the regular season. Theyll take on the Gary SouthShore RailCats on Friday evening at 7 p.m. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
