Fleury, Penguins blank lowly Islanders

By Tricia Lafferty
Wednesday, Feb. 25, 2009
 

Forward Petr Sykora scored the game's lone goal to give the Penguins a 1-0 victory against the New York Islanders tonight at Mellon Arena.

The Penguins finally broke the scoreless tie with 2:28 remaining when Sykora scored his 23rd goal to help the Penguins defeat the Islanders — owners of the worst record in the NHL.

Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury made 21 saves.

The Penguins were without captain Sidney Crosby — tied for second among NHL scorers — who is day-to-day with a groin injury. Also, defenseman Ryan Whitney was not with the team as he returned to Boston so he could attend to family matters.
