Carter, Lagace help Penguins beat Sabres, clinch 1st in East

PITTSBURGH (AP) Jeff Carter scored and Maxime Lagace stopped 29 shots for his first career shutout as the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Buffalo Sabres 1-0 on Saturday.

Lagace, making his first start in more than two years, got his seventh career win, and helped Pittsburgh clinch first place in the East Division when Washington needed overtime to beat Philadelphia. The Penguins were without Tristan Jarry and Casey DeSmith, their top two goaltenders, for the regular season finale.

"Probably, what I'll remember most is when the buzzer sounded," Lagace said. "It was such a relief. Within the last four minutes, I'd say I started to think about the shutout. It was creeping into my head a little bit and I wanted it so bad."
