TORONTO (KDKA/AP) — The Penguins’ eight-game winning streak came to a halt after a 1-0 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs Wednesday night.

It all came to an end when Toronto’s Clarke MacArthur scored at 13:55 in the third period.

Brent Johnson made 23 saves.

The Penguins’ offense was stifled by Toronto’s James Reimer who stopped 25 shots.

Reimer, who was starting for only the second time in 14 games, registered his first shutout since opening night against Montreal in October. It was also a rare appearance for Johnson, who gave Marc-Andre Fleury a rest for the second time in 19 games.

Even with NHL scoring leader Evgeni Malkin on the ice, there were very few quality scoring chances at either end.

Pittsburgh did manage to get a puck over the goal-line early in the second period, but that goal was overturned because Chris Kunitz was ruled to have kicked it into the net.
