PITTSBURGH, Nov. 15 (UPI) -- Brandon Sutter and James Neal both had a goal and an assist Friday in helping Pittsburgh snap a three-game skid with a 4-1 decision over Nashville.

The Predators scored the first goal of the game, but Marc-Andre Fleury had to face just 18 shots and blanked Nashville for the final 57:32.

Neal scored on a deflection with 4:14 left in the opening period to put the Penguins in front. Kris Letang and Sutter added second-period goals while keeping the Penguins atop the Metropolitan Division.

Nashville lost its fourth in a row and finished a grueling road trip with a 2-5 mark. The Predators' lone goal came from Gabriel Bourque.

The four Pittsburgh goals were scored against Marek Mazanec on 25 shots. Mazanec was replaced in the third period by Carter Hutton.
