Pascal Dupuis and Richard Park had goals, and Marc-Andre Fleury was sharp in making 33 saves in his 20th NHL shutout as the Pittsburgh Penguins earned their fourth straight win by beating the New York Islanders 3-0 on Tuesday night.
Star center Evgeni Malkin returned to the Penguins' depleted lineup after missing five games because of his troublesome right knee, but Pittsburgh didn't need any offense from him to send the Islanders to their third straight loss following a three-game winning streak.
Jordan Staal added his sixth of the season, scoring into an empty net off an assist from Dupuis, with 2 minutes left.
Malkin sat out seven of the previous eight games, and the Penguins hardly missed him. Pittsburgh is 7-2-2 through an NHL-high 11 games.
