The Penguins got goals from defensemen Kris Letang and Sergei Gonchar and 59 minutes of shutout play by goalie Marc-Andre Fleury to beat Montreal, 2-1, in Game 5 of their Eastern Conference semifinal at Mellon Arena.
Michael Cammelleri scored a power-play goal on a 6-on-4 with 29.7 seconds left to erase Fleury’s shutout bid after the Penguins missed on a pair of empty-net attempts.
The Penguins have a 3-2 lead over the Canadiens in the best-of-seven series.
The defending Stanley Cup champions are now within one game of clinching their third consecutive trip to the Eastern Conference final.
Game 6 is at 7 p.m. Monday at Montreal’s Bell Centre.
