Marc-Andre Fleury had 22 saves for his seventh shutout of the season, leading the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 2-0 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday night.

Evgeni Malkin and David Perron scored for the Penguins, who improved to 12-6-5 on the road this season.

Viktor Fasth had 24 saves in the Oilers' second loss in three games.

After a scoreless first period in which there were few chances, Malkin got Pittsburgh on the scoreboard 24 seconds into the second. He picked up a loose puck during a scramble in front of the Oilers' net and slipped in his 20th goal of the season.

The Penguins doubled the lead with 0.4 seconds to go in the period as the rebound of Kris Letang's shot hit Perron on the way toward the net and caromed in.
