Valterri Puustinen had two primary assists, and Alex Nedeljkovic had 24 saves on 27 shots for his fourth win of the year.

The Penguins remain 13th in the Eastern Conference but are just four points behind the Carolina Hurricanes for the top wild-card spot. However, there are four teams between the Penguins and the second spot, too.

We break down the win, the new kid who could become a central figure in this Penguins season, and what the win really means for the beleaguered boys in black and gold.
