Luongo missing jockstrap

PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Penguins and Vancouver Canucks had gone two years and 157 games since they last faced each other.

They picked up right where they left off.

Back in 2011, Evgeni Malkin scored the deciding goal in the shootout as the Penguins earned a season-opening victory at Vancouver.

The site changed on Saturday, but the result was the same.

Malkin scored in the third round of the shootout, and Marc-Andre Fleury made the deciding stop on Ryan Kesler as the Penguins remained unbeaten at home with a 4-3 win over the Canucks.

"The goal Evgeni scored in Vancouver was similar to the one he got (Saturday)," Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said. "He moved out wide, got Luongo down and scored the winner."

Malkin skated down the right-wing boards and moved across the ice, curling his stick to stuff the puck past goalie Roberto Luongo with a backhander.

"When Malkin came down, I wasn't quite sure what he was going to do, and unfortunately, I bit on the fake and he went backhand," Luongo said. "I wish I would have been a bit more patient maybe on that one."
