Matt Niskanen scored a goal in a 5-3 victory on Tuesday.
Niskanen has two goals and 11 points in 27 contests in 2014-15. That's a big step back from his 46-point campaign with Pittsburgh last season. Niskanen might heat up as the season progresses, but we wouldn't count on that happening. Dec 10 - 9:43 AM
