COLUMBUS, Ohio — Marc-Andre Fleury, who was benched during the 2013 playoffs, is the Penguins' anointed No. 1 goalie.

He stopped 10 of 12 shots over two periods in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets in an exhibition game Sunday at Nationwide Arena.

Chuck Kobasew, in training camp on a tryout contract, marked twice to join fellow right winger James Neal and center Dustin Jeffrey as the Penguins' goal scorers.
