OTTAWA, Ontario -- The offensively dynamic Pittsburgh Penguins stopped their losing skid at two by playing a stellar defensive game Sunday. And they did so with a depleted blue line. Marc-Andre Fleury matched Ottawa Senators goalie Craig Anderson save-for-save through 65 minutes -- then made one more stop than his opposite number in the shootout -- as the Penguins left Scotiabank Place with a 2-1 victory over the Senators. Anderson, who has given up just three goals in 12 periods of regulation time this season, couldn't stop a puck in the shootout as all three Penguins players scored. Evgeni Malkin had the decisive shootout score that put the Penguins back on track after losses to Toronto and Winnipeg. But foremost in coach Dan Bylsma's mind afterward was the play of his charges without defenseman Matt Niskanen, who left after nine shifts with a "lower body" injury that will be reevaluated Monday in Pittsburgh. Giving Fleury the most help was veteran Broo...

Scotiabank Place - Kanata, ON
The Pens travel to the middle of nowhere Scotiabank Place in Kanata, Ontario to face off against the Ottawa Senators. Since the Penguins have lost *OMG* two games in a row, it'll be interesting to see if they can bounce back today.
After their offense keyed consecutive victories to open the season, the Pittsburgh Penguins' poor defense has led to back-to-back defeats.
The Penguins likely have to tighten things up Sunday night when they visit the Ottawa Senators, one of the highest-scoring teams in the Eastern Conference through the first week.
Playing on the road for the fourth time in its first five...
