Pittsburgh • The Pittsburgh Penguins put together a fast start Friday night, and goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury took care of the rest.

Fleury made 30 of his 37 saves over the final two periods, helping Pittsburgh hold on for a 3-2 win over the New Jersey Devils.

"We weren't giving them much [at the beginning]; I was getting a little lonely back there," said Fleury, who improved to 12-2 at home. "But they didn't quit. They kept coming out after us. It was nice to hold on and get the two points."

Pascal Dupuis scored 41 seconds into the game, and Chris Conner and Jayson Megna also scored in the first for Metropolitan-leading Pittsburgh, which has won seven of eight. The Penguins also extended their home winning streak to seven games.

Patrik Elias and Dainius Zubrus scored 56 seconds apart early in the second period, but New Jersey dropped to 1-4-1 in its past six. EASTERN CONFERENCE
