BUFFALO, N.Y. (CP) - Marc-Andre Fleury made 31 saves in a 4-2 victory Friday night that gave the Pittsburgh Penguins their first win in Buffalo since November 2003.

Ryan Whitney, Jordan Staal, Evgeni Malkin and Dominic Moore scored Pittsburgh's goals. Derek Roy and Chris Drury replied for the Eastern Conference leaders, who lost a second consecutive game for only the second time this season.

NHL scoring leader Sidney Crosby of the Penguins picked up one assist.

Buffalo had a 33-27 shots advantage, but Fleury continued his hot streak. He's allowed only three goals in the last three games - all Pittsburgh wins.

Roy struck at 14:44 when he slammed home a Toni Lydman pass for the only goal of the first period.

In the second, Whitney and Drury exchanged power-play goals before Staal tied it at 13:39 by knocking in a rebound. Malkin put the Penguins up 3-2 on a power play at 19:57 when he slapped a rocket over goalie Ryan Miller's left shoulder for his 19th goal.
