(MENAFN -Arab News) NASHVILLE: Pittsburgh defenseman Matt Niskanen scored two goals as the Penguins spoiled the return of Nashville Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne with a 3-1 victory on Tuesday.

Rinne, who sat out 51 games due to a hip infection, finished with 16 saves

Pittsburgh struck the game?s first goal 27 seconds into the second period where Sidney Crosby, skating behind the Predators net, found Niskanen open for a slap shot that got behind Rinne

Avalanche 4 Blackhawks 2:Defenseman Tyson Barrie?s ninth goal of the season, on a power play at 12:50 of the third period, broke a 2-2 tie and was followed by center Paul Stastny?s insurance marker in the final minute that gave Colorado the win over the Chicago Blackhawks

The victory was also the 40th of the season for Colorado (40-17-5) in 62 games, the fastest the Avs have ever reached 40

Blue Jackets 4 Stars 2: Center Artem Anisimov scored the winning goal for the third straight game, saving the Columbus Blue Jackets from collapse against the Dallas Stars

Anisimov scored the second of his two goals with 4:07 remaining in regulation, giving the Blue Jackets a 4-2 lead after they nearly blown an early 3-0 advantage

Islanders 3 Jets 2 (Overtime): Michael Grabner scored on a breakaway, his 12th goal of the year, at 3:53 of overtime to lead the New York Islanders past Winnipeg

Anders Nilsson made 36 saves to preserve the win for the Islanders (24-32-8)
