Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka was on good form to stop a header from Norwich's Sam Byram early on. Pukki had a half-volley saved by Dubravka in the 17th minute and then another shot blocked in the 29th after he initially got through the Newcastle defense.
Pukki again missed a good chance to score with 20 minutes remaining. At the other end, Norwich keeper Tim Krul kept his old club at bay with a save from Joelinton before Miguel Almiron missed on the rebound.
Norwich has won just one of its last 12 games in the league and is seven points off 17th-placed Aston Villa.
