TORONTO (AP) Marc-Andre Fleury recorded his 40th career shutout and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-0 Saturday night for their fourth straight win in Phil Kessel's return to the Air Canada Centre.

Toronto kept Kessel, Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin off the scoresheet, but the Penguins stars had plenty of help in adding to the Leafs' early misery this season.

Chris Kunitz, Eric Fehr, Matt Cullen and Patric Hornqvist scored before a Halloween crowd of 19,197 that included Gumbie, Super Mario and Superman. Many left before the final whistle.

The Penguins outshot Toronto 32-21. Fleury picked up an assist on the Pens' fourth goal and improved his record against the Leafs to 18-9-3 with his first shutout against the club.

Pittsburgh is 7-1-0 since losing its first three games of the season.

The Leafs are winless in six straight.

Kessel was booed whenever he touched the puck, with the volume increasing the longer he had it.
