Connor Hutton stopped 21 shots to pick up his second career shutout as the Nashville Predators beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-0 on Sunday.

Gabriel Bourque, Roman Josi, Eric Nystrom and Mike Fisher scored, giving the Predators their first regulation win in Pittsburgh in 11 years.

Hutton improved to 3-1-2 while temporarily filling in as Nashville's No. 1 goaltender while All-Star Pekka Rinne recovers with a sprained knee that will sideline him for at least another week. The Predators ended a five-game losing streak to Pittsburgh by taking advantage of sloppy play by the Penguins, who have lost six of eight.

Nystrom and Bourque pounced on Pittsburgh turnovers — one of them by captain Sidney Crosby — to give Hutton all the support he needed.

Marc-Andre Fleury made 20 saves for the Penguins but received no help from Pittsburgh's sputtering offense.
