PITTSBURGH (AP) - Marc-Andre Fleury made 32 saves for his fifth shutout of the season, leading the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 2-0 victory over the Washington Capitals on Tuesday night.

Jussi Jokinen and Sidney Crosby scored for the Penguins, who swept the teams' home-and-series one night after beating the Capitals 3-2 in Washington. Pittsburgh has won three in a row and picked up at least a point in eight of its last 10 games.

The Penguins have also beaten their longtime rivals a franchise-record eight straight times.

Jaroslav Halak stopped 32 shots in his third start for Washington. Alexander Ovechkin was held without a point for the fourth consecutive game as the Capitals lost for the fourth time in their last five.
