Matt Niskanen tallied two goals Tuesday night, and Chris Kunitz scored his 200th career goal as the Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the Predators 3-1 in Nashville for their first win in their last four games.

Patric Hornqvist scored for Nashville (26-26-10).  An apparent goal by the Predators’ Paul Gaustad was disallowed when a replay showed Gaustad may have kicked the puck into the net.

Marc-Andre Fleury (32-14-3) stopped 18 shots to earn the win over Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne (4-5-1) in a game in which both teams managed only 19 shots-on-goal.

The Penguins (41-16-4) will continue a five-game road trip on Thursday night with a contest versus the Sharks in San Jose.  Radio pregame airtime on 96.3 KQW will be 10:00 PM.
