PITTSBURGH (KDKA/AP) — The Penguins came up short against the Anaheim Ducks, losing 2-1 on Wednesday night at the CONSOL Energy Center.

Jordan Staal’s goal at 6:27 in the first period put the Penguins up 1-0. However, that was the Penguins’ only goal for the night.

Late in the second period, Anaheim’s Correy Perry tied it. Then Teemu Selanne made it 2-1 in the third for the game-winner.

Marc-Andre Fleury had 27 saves.

The Penguins were 0 for 1 on the power play.

Evgeni Malkin, the NHL’s leading scorer, was held pointless for the second time this month, and his eight-game goal streak at home ended, too.
