Fleury, Penguins blank Islanders

Marc-Andre Fleury turned away 33 shots to 0 victory over the New York Islanders in the opener of a home-and-home set at Nassau Coliseum.

Pascal Dupuis, Richard Park and Jordan Staal each had a goal for the Penguins, who have won four games in a row.

Evgeni Malkin recorded three shots in his return to the Pittsburgh lineup. He had missed the last five contests and seven of eight with a sore right knee -- the same one that the Russian forward had season-ending surgery on in February.

Evgeni Nabokov made 26 saves for New York, which suffered its third straight loss.

Dupuis scored on a breakaway with 2:54 remaining in the first period, then Park, a former Islander, fired a shot off Nabokov's left shoulder 21 seconds into the middle frame.

Staal hit an empty net to seal the win with 2:00 minutes to play in the third.
