QUICK CAP: Three game losing skid over as deadline looms.

It is March, and this is what Dan Bylsma led teams do in March. Win. Matt Niskanen scored two goals, including the game winner on the powerplay in the third period. Crosby had three assists. The game was touch-and-go for a while, with the Predators desperately needing a win. The Pens got back to winning, something they needed to do after a bad loss in Chicago.
 
Now all focus shifts to GM Ray Shero and what moves he will make. The Penguins are basically "in" on everyone that is available in the NHL.
 

Three Stars

Tanner Glass

Glass laid his life on the line several times in this game. He blocked two Shea Weber shots that would have been fatal blows to an average person.
 

Sidney Crosby

Surprise appearance by Crosby. Haven't seen him since Sochi. He looked worlds better and assisted on all three Penguin goals.
 

Matt Niskanen

Matt Niskanen picked a hell of a year to play out of his mind. The pending free agent led the Penguins in ice-time and scored two goals. He got the game winner in the third period.
