Backup Casey DeSmith stuffs Ducks as Penguins win 1-0

Goaltender Casey DeSmith stopped all 33 shots he faced and Brock McGinn scored Saturday to stake the Pittsburgh Penguins to their fourth straight win, 1-0 over the visiting Anaheim Ducks. DeSmith, the Penguins’ backup goalie making just his sixth start of the season after struggling early on, picked up his seventh career shutout, first of the season and first against Anaheim. He lost his first four starts before earning his first win five days earlier at Seattle.
