NASHVILLE -- The Pittsburgh Penguins needed a boost to snap a three-game skid. They got it from Tanner Glass, who blocked shot after shot after shot by Nashville Predators captain Shea Weber. Glass got in front of five shots, Matt Niskanen scored his second goal of the game 7:29 into the third period, and the Penguins beat the Predators 3-1 on Tuesday night. "We saw Tanner Glass come up with some huge blocks in the first period on Shea Weber," Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma said. "Three in a row on probably the hardest shot in the league taking those, and they did a great job and again we stuck with it. ... I thought we got a great win for our team." Glass said his job is to be in the lane when Weber is trying to shoot on the power play. Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury said the blocked shots off the stick of the Predators defenceman provided a lift similar to a big goal or a fight. "You know its coming hard and heavy," Fleury said of Webers shot. "But (Glass) still goes and makes the save. My hat goes off to him." The Penguins helped ruin the return of Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne in his first game since Oct. 22 following an E. coli infection in his surgically repaired left hip. Niskanens winning goal came during a power play. The NHLs best unit went 1 for 5 with the man advantage. Sidney Crosby found Niskanen for a slap shot that went under Rinnes glove. "Hes a really good goalie, and he is very tough to beat," Niskanen said. "It was a really great effort by us. A lot of guys did well, and it was a good team effort." Chris Kunitz scored a goal, and Crosby had three assists to add to his NHL-leading point total. The Penguins have not lost more than three straight this season, and this win sets them up for the final three games on their longest road trip this season. Patric Hornqvist scored for Nashville, which has lost two consecutive games. Rinne made 16 saves in his return. He had surgery on his hip on May 9 and needed a second operation because of the infection on Oct. 24. He rejoined the Predators on Monday after stopping 33 of 35 shots in a two-game conditioning stint in Milwaukee. "Its great to be back," Rinne said. "Its been a pretty long time so it means a lot to me to be able to be back, play at home, and the fans have been great to me. It made me feel really good but still we lost the game and thats tough to take." Fans welcomed him back with a huge roar during introductions and chanted his name after his first big save. Crosby sent a cross-ice pass to Kunitz that Rinne blocked by sticking out his right pad. The two-time Vezina Trophy finalist stopped Kunitz again on a breakaway later in the first period. Nashville thought it had a 1-0 lead when Paul Gaustad had the puck go off his right shin past Fleury off a rebound of a shot by Nick Spaling. But after a long review, officials disallowed the goal because of a distinct kicking motion by Gaustad. "They called it a goal on the ice," Nashville coach Barry Trotz said. "I looked at it, and there was a motion but it was more of a stopping motion to me. (He) is trying to run to the net and not run over the goalie." The Penguins scored first when Crosby skated around the net and found Niskanen in the right circle for a one-timer that squeezed between Rinne and the post 27 seconds into the second. Nashville answered 12 seconds later as Hornqvists wrister off a rebound beat Fleury. Pittsburgh sealed the win when Crosby fed Kunitz in the slot for a slap shot with 17:05 left. It was the 28th goal this season for Kunitz and the 200th of his career, giving the large contingent of Penguins fans plenty to celebrate. NOTES: Penguins forward Chuck Kobasew played his 600th NHL game after being placed on waivers Monday. ... Pittsburgh has killed 12 straight penalties over four consecutive road games. ... Predators coach Barry Trotz is 6-3-1 in Nashville against the Penguins. ... Hornqvist has two goals and four assists in his last eight games.

Seattle Seahawks Jerseys .com) - The Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings are ready to put all the talk and hype surrounding their meeting at Dodger Stadium behind them.Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Many who worship at the altar of Chip Kelly dont really understand what his offense is about. The legend paints Kelly as the Gary Kasparov of the NFL, an Xs and Os grandmaster capable of beating Bill Walsh in a game of chess never mind the Neanderthals that roam the sidelines in todays NFL. To call that a misconception is being kind. Kelly runs perhaps the most basic offense in all of professional football, in essence zone-read right or left, with only the formation and run or pass differentiating from play to play. In fact Kellys whole football philosophy isnt based on fooling or outscheming anyone, its about controlled chaos with the intent of constantly pushing the pace and outnumbering the defense in space, an ideology he believes forces his opponents into far more miscues than his own team which prepares with practices run as quickly as possible in order to improve conditioning and maximize repetitions. And Kelly expects his charges to make the occasional mistake. Hes just betting on the fact that if his players make one, yours will make two because they werent ready at the snap of the ball or theyre just too gassed to handle their particular assignments. Its a mentality thats old hat in college football now, where Kelly dominated at the University of Oregon, but still rather new to the NFL which still has some real-life dinosaurs coaching on Sundays. Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett made the most news after Seattles dominating 24-14 win over Kellys Eagles on Sunday by taking an unfair shot at Philadelphia quarterback Mark Sanchez, who piloted a unit that put up just 139 yards of total offense in 18 minutes of possession, the Eagles lowest output in 30 games under Kelly and its worse performance as a whole since 2005. Tell the Philadelphia police to put an APB out, Bennett quipped. Sanchez is trying to impersonate a good quarterback. Sanchez completed just 10 of his 20 passes for 96 yards in his fifth straight start for the injured Nick Foles. He did throw touchdown passes to Jeremy Maclin and Zach Ertz, but looked overmatched against the vaunted Legion of Boom. Thats a really good football team that we played and they showed it, Sanchez admitted. They brought a great game plan..ddddddddddddThey played really well in their zones and really well in their man (coverage). They took away a lot of opportunities and then when opportunities presented themselves, I missed a couple of balls downfield and they made us pay. Ill give them credit, Kelly added. They did a hell of a job on defense. The Seahawks usually do. Peyton Manning is a pretty good QB but he looked a lot like Sanchez back in February when facing a similar Seattle D in the Super Bowl, one that has reappeared ever since middle linebacker Bobby Wagner and strong safety Kam Chancellor returned from injury. The Seahawks stop unit hadnt given up a TD in eight quarters before Sundays game, allowing just three points to both Arizona and San Francisco in back-to- back performances. When it finally did allow a TD in Philly it was because of Jon Ryans bobbled punt and the Eagles traversed only 14 yards before Maclins 1-yard score. In fact Seattle really gave up only one play all afternoon, the 35-yard TD pass from Sanchez to Ertz in the third quarter. They have a sound system and they have great players in every spot, Sanchez said. We just didnt really give our best showing out there and thats unfortunate because that would have been a good one for us. Sanchezs 96 passing yards marked his worst game under Kelly and the fourth lowest passing total of his spotty career, a result that sparked one reporter to ask Bennett what he saw in the Eagles quarterback. The same thing everyone else saw, Bennett replied. Not much. Bennett, though, was just having fun after a big win. Wagner, on the other hand, was holding court and exposing what Kelly and the Eagles are about. No matter how fast they ran a play, we were just on it, the LB said. We knew what plays were coming and its a pretty basic offense. And the recipe for beating it is also pretty basic albeit easier said than done. It just seem like a similar story. We played disciplined, sound football, Seahawks All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman said. Like I said earlier in the week when everybody brushed me off, they have to deal with us just like we have to deal with them. You can hurry up all you want but if you cannot get yards, cannot complete passes, then its just quick three and outs.
