James Wisniewski scored a power-play goal for Columbus with 3:06 left, with Pittsburgh hanging on as Fleury made huge saves on Brandon Dubinsky and Cam Atkinson during a scrum in the final seconds.
Curtis McElhinney, taking the place of the ill Sergei Bobrovsky, stopped the first 28 Penguins shots before Kunitz notched his 34th with 9:25 left.
FLYERS 4, MAPLE LEAFS 2
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Vinny Lecavalier, Scott Hartnell, Claude Giroux and Wayne Simmonds scored goals, leading Philadelphia over Toronto.

Lecavalier was dropped from a spot on the wing on the second line to his more natural center on the fourth line. But he also had the spot on the top power-play unit and scored in the first with Philadelphia holding a two-man advantage.

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - Mike Cammalleri had a goal and an assist to lead Calgary over New York.

Joe Colborne, Mark Giordano and Kevin Westgarth also scored for the Flames, who tied a franchise record (set in 2005-06) with their 45th one-goal game of the season. They improved their record to 22-17-8 in those one-goal matchups.
