PITTSBURGH (AP) - Mark Recchi scored and set up rookie Evgeni Malkin for the go-ahead goal, and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Nashville Predators 4-1 Tuesday night behind another strong game by goalie Marc-Andre Fleury.

Fleury, who hasn't lost in regulation in 10 games since Jan. 9, turned aside 25 shots as the Penguins won their ninth in 11 games, with two overtime losses. Fleury has started each of those games. The NHL's most improved team from a year ago is 27-17-9 - a 29-point improvement from this time last season.

Nashville owns an NHL-best 37-15-3 record, but lost its third in four games because it couldn't stop the Penguins' oldest player and three of its youngest.
