Neal, Sutter help Penguins beat road-weary Predators 4-1

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - James Neal and Brandon Sutter each had a goal and an assist, and the Pittsburgh Penguins snapped a three-game losing streak with a 4-1 win over the Nashville Predators on Friday night.

Playing in his fourth game of the season, Neal — a former 40-goal scorer — netted his first of the season late in the first period to give the Penguins a lead they didn't relinquish against the road-weary Predators.

Nashville lost the final four of a franchise-record, 17-day, seven-game trip. Gabriel Bourque scored 2:28 in but the Predators were held to fewer than two goals for the fourth consecutive game.

Pascal Dupuis and Kris Letang also scored, and Evgeni Malkin extended his point streak to six with two assists for Pittsburgh. Marc-Andre Fleury made 17 saves to improve to 8-2 at home.

The Penguins have held opponents under three goals in seven of eight games.
