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 werent 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 didnt 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. After Pittsburgh took a 3-0 lead into the first intermission, the Devils controlled the remainder of the game. But Fleury was sharp. Perhaps his best saves came on Steve Bernier -- twice, with a pad and then his stick while sprawling -- with 14:40 to play in regulation. Fleury then denied Damien Brunner on a partial breakaway minutes later. "Hes going to tell you its nice to be able to get a lot of shots and flurries and action at his net," Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma said. "But I think hed just assumed not have grade-A chances on him at key points of the game - especially in the third period." The Penguins survived a frenzied final push by New Jersey, avoiding the fate of allowing a goal to an opponent that had its goalie pulled for the third game in a row. "We took our foot off the pedal in terms of how we played and how we executed with the puck," Bylsma said. "We were a little careless in how we managed the puck." Dupuis goal set the tone, coming off a misplay by Devils goaltender Cory Schneider. Chris Kunitz carried the puck into the zone and flipped a fluttering puck on net as he crossed the blue line. Schneider had trouble covering it, and Dupuis eventually poked it in for his fifth of the season. "Obviously, just an inexcusable goal," Schneider said. "That cant happen at this level. Its not fair to my teammates to put them down 40 seconds into the game." Conner then made it 2-0 at 7:55 when Brandon Sutter sprung him alone in the slot and he used a wrist shot beat Schneider for his second goal of the season. Megna, a rookie in the lineup only because of injuries and the suspension of winger James Neal, scored for the second time in four games -- his fourth overall -- with 5:20 to play in the first. But the Devils took 15 of the first 16 shots of the second period and had a 19-5 advantage in shots in the period overall. After the first intermission, New Jersey outshot Pittsburgh 32-11. "We were clearly the better team the last 40 minutes," Schneider said. "Fleury made some real big saves and was definitely, by far, the better goalie tonight." New Jersey got to Fleury twice. Elias scored 3:24 into the second after a failed Devils power play. Zubrus then pushed a fluttering puck that was sitting on the goal line into the net after a Jaromir Jagr shot deflected off Megnas leg, making it difficult for Fleury to handle. "The second and third we started moving our feet, and thats how we started creating some chances," Zubrus said. "Were a pretty good team - weve just got to get our minds into it from the start of the game and start skating right off the hop. When we do that, when we play 60 minutes, we can play against anybody." Fleury is second in the NHL in home wins and goals-against average, and third in save percentage at home. "After (the third goal), we didnt play the way we wanted," Megna said. "We need to play a complete game after that, and I think Flower made it stand up for us." NOTES: Penguins D Brooks Orpik skated briefly Friday morning. Orpik, who is still experiencing concussion symptoms, is not expected to return to game action anytime soon. He has not played since Bostons Shawn Thornton grabbed Orpik from behind, pulled him to the ground and punched him, knocking him unconscious.
