Matt Niskanen got an assist in a 1-0 win over Philadelphia.
After recording 46 points last season, Niskanen has just two goals and 14 points in 43 games in 2014-15. The fact that he's declined this season isn't surprising, but the degree to which he's fallen is. We wouldn't be surprised if he does at least a bit better in the second half of the season.
