Ducks Win In Pittsburgh For 1st Time In 11 Years
PITTSBURGH (CBS/AP) — Teemu Selanne beat goalie Marc-Andre Fleury midway through the third period, and the Anaheim Ducks snapped the Penguins’ six-game, home-winning streak with a 2-1 victory on Wednesday night.
This win is also the Ducks’ first victory in Pittsburgh in eleven years.
Corey Perry added his 28th goal, and Jonas Hiller made 25 saves for Anaheim, which won in Pittsburgh for the first time in 11 years by slowing down Penguins star Evgeni Malkin.
The NHL’s leading scorer was held pointless for the second time this month, and his eight-game goal streak at home ended, too. Jordan Staal scored for Pittsburgh, but the Penguins’ high-flying offense was bottled up over the last two periods.
Selanne’s 19th goal of the season was the 656th of his career, moving him into a tie with Brendan Shanahan for 12th place on the NHL list.
