PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Penguins put together a fast start Friday night, and goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury took care of the rest. Fleury made 30 of his 37 saves over the final two periods, helping Pittsburgh hold on for a 3-2 win over the New Jersey Devils. "We werent giving them much (at the beginning); I was getting a little lonely back there," said Fleury, who improved to 12-2 at home. "But they didnt quit. They kept coming out after us. It was nice to hold on and get the two points." Pascal Dupuis scored 41 seconds into the game, and Chris Conner and Jayson Megna also scored in the first for Metropolitan-leading Pittsburgh, which has won seven of eight. The Penguins also extended their home winning streak to seven games. Patrik Elias and Dainius Zubrus scored 56 seconds apart early in the second period, but New Jersey dropped to 1-4-1 in its past six. After Pittsburgh took a 3-0 lead into the first intermission, the Devils controlled the remainder of the game. But Fleury was sharp. Perhaps his best saves came on Steve Bernier -- twice, with a pad and then his stick while sprawling -- with 14:40 to play in regulation. Fleury then denied Damien Brunner on a partial breakaway minutes later. "Hes going to tell you its nice to be able to get a lot of shots and flurries and action at his net," Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma said. "But I think hed just assumed not have grade-A chances on him at key points of the game - especially in the third period." The Penguins survived a frenzied final push by New Jersey, avoiding the fate of allowing a goal to an opponent that had its goalie pulled for the third game in a row. "We took our foot off the pedal in terms of how we played and how we executed with the puck," Bylsma said. "We were a little careless in how we managed the puck." Dupuis goal set the tone, coming off a misplay by Devils goaltender Cory Schneider. Chris Kunitz carried the puck into the zone and flipped a fluttering puck on net as he crossed the blue line. Schneider had trouble covering it, and Dupuis eventually poked it in for his fifth of the season. "Obviously, just an inexcusable goal," Schneider said. "That cant happen at this level. Its not fair to my teammates to put them down 40 seconds into the game." Conner then made it 2-0 at 7:55 when Brandon Sutter sprung him alone in the slot and he used a wrist shot beat Schneider for his second goal of the season. Megna, a rookie in the lineup only because of injuries and the suspension of winger James Neal, scored for the second time in four games -- his fourth overall -- with 5:20 to play in the first. But the Devils took 15 of the first 16 shots of the second period and had a 19-5 advantage in shots in the period overall. After the first intermission, New Jersey outshot Pittsburgh 32-11. "We were clearly the better team the last 40 minutes," Schneider said. "Fleury made some real big saves and was definitely, by far, the better goalie tonight." New Jersey got to Fleury twice. Elias scored 3:24 into the second after a failed Devils power play. Zubrus then pushed a fluttering puck that was sitting on the goal line into the net after a Jaromir Jagr shot deflected off Megnas leg, making it difficult for Fleury to handle. "The second and third we started moving our feet, and thats how we started creating some chances," Zubrus said. "Were a pretty good team - weve just got to get our minds into it from the start of the game and start skating right off the hop. When we do that, when we play 60 minutes, we can play against anybody." Fleury is second in the NHL in home wins and goals-against average, and third in save percentage at home. "After (the third goal), we didnt play the way we wanted," Megna said. "We need to play a complete game after that, and I think Flower made it stand up for us." NOTES: Penguins D Brooks Orpik skated briefly Friday morning. Orpik, who is still experiencing concussion symptoms, is not expected to return to game action anytime soon. He has not played since Bostons Shawn Thornton grabbed Orpik from behind, pulled him to the ground and punched him, knocking him unconscious. Thornton has been suspended indefinitely, and his hearing with the NHL was Friday. ... C Sidney Crosby earned an assist on Dupuis goal, extending his point streak to five games. ... The Penguins, who are 14-3 at home, have scored at least three goals in 14 of 17 games at Consol Energy Center. ... Elias has a five-game point streak.

Donnie Shell Womens Jersey . - Regan Smith had the checkered flag in sight at Daytona a year ago and a freight train of cars in his rearview mirror.DALLAS - J.J. Barea is the latest to join the championship reunion for the Dallas Mavericks.The diminutive guard who played a key role in Dallas 2011 NBA Finals victory over Miami signed with the Mavericks on Wednesday after clearing waivers following his release by Minnesota.Barea is back with Dirk Nowitzki and Tyson Chandler, the centre whose leadership played a big part in the franchises only championship.Mavericks owner Mark Cuban decided three years ago not to bring back several key pieces of his title team because he thought the long-term contracts would hurt his salary cap flexibility under the new labour agreement.As a result, Chandler and Barea went elsewhere on four-year deals — Chandler to the New York Knicks and Barea to the Timberwolves.Chandler came back in an off-season trade for the final year of a contract that was originally worth $55 million. Hes making almost $15 million this year.Barea was added quickly after reaching out a buyout agreement on the final year of his deal worth $4.5 million. Hee will make the veteran minimum of $1.dddddddddddd3 million with the Mavericks.Minnesota coach Flip Saunders didnt believe there would be much playing time for Barea behind point guards Ricky Rubio and Mo Williams.While theres a similar logjam in Dallas with Jameer Nelson, Devin Harris and Raymond Felton, Barea has a history with Dallas coach Rick Carlisle.He was a surprise starter for the first time in the playoffs with the Mavericks trailing the Heat 2-1, and started three straight Dallas victories that closed out the series.Barea averaged a career-high 11.3 points per game each of his first two seasons in Minnesota, but ultimately was miscast as a prototypical point guard. Much of the success that led to his big contract came under Carlisle as a shooting guard who was a threat to drive the lane.Now in his ninth season, Barea made the Dallas roster as an undrafted free agent in 2006. The native of Puerto Rico played in college at Northeastern.Dallas waived guard Gal Mekel to make room for Barea.
