Fleury, Penguins Stymie Rangers to Even Series 1-1

Jamie Sabau/Getty Images(PITTSBURGH) -- Marc-Andre Fleury stopped all 22 shots he faced as the Pittsburgh Penguins blanked the New York Rangers 3-0 Sunday, to even the Eastern Conference semifinals at one game a piece.

"I thought to a man our players were extremely good all night," Pittsburgh head coach Dan Bylsma said. "It was a huge win for us."

The contest was scoreless until the 10:26 mark of the second period when Pittsburgh defenseman Kris Letang scored his second goal of the playoffs.

The game stayed that way until there was 3:30 remaining in the third period and Jussi Jokinen scored on the power play to extend the Penguins lead to two.

Evgeni Malkin added an empty-netter to finish the deal.

Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist saved 32 of the 34 shots he faced in the loss.
                                                  

The series now shifts to New York; Game 3 is Monday night at Madison Square Garden. The puck is scheduled to be dropped at 7:30 p.m. ET.
