UNIONDALE, N.Y – Two games, two comebacks, and one common denominator; the play of Kyle Okposo.
The 25-year-old winger has made quite the mark over the last two games against the Pittsburgh Penguins. On Friday his fight helped sparked the Islanders and his goal in the third period won the game for them. And despite loss Sunday, Okposo...
Tribune Review Writer Rob Rossi Tweeted that James Neal left practice on Saturday after only 10 min. on the ice. Brooks Orpik was again absent from practice. The Pittsburgh Penguins likely line combinations for Game 3 Sunday vs. the Islanders. Forwards Dupuis – Crosby – Iginla Kunitz – Malkin – Bennett Morrow – [...]
Kyle Okposo's first career playoff goal with 7:37 remaining lifted the New York Islanders to a 4-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday night, evening their playoffs series at one game each.
Matt Moulson, Colin McDonald and Matt Martin also scored for the Islanders, who spoiled Sidney Crosby's comeback from a broken jaw by rallying from an early two-goal deficit...
One of the great things about the playoffs is the sense that anything can happen. It's an overstated narrative, but it's somewhat true when you think about it. Crazy things happen in a seven-game sample size (goalies standing on their heads, certain players going through a hot streak, etc.) and the heavily favored team doesn't always win. In this Pens/Isles series, the...
Pittsburgh Penguins forward Chris Kunitz scored a power-play goal 8:44 into overtime to allow the Pittsburgh Penguins to take as 5-4 victory from the New York Islanders in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference Quarterfinals series at Nassau Veterans Coliseum.This NHL playoff series defines why they play the games. Nobody in the world would have guessed that this series will provide...

The New York Islanders said all the right things in the days leading up to their first-round playoff matchup against the top-seeded Pittsburgh Penguins.
Yes, they knew the odds of an upset in a No. 1 vs. No. 8 series were stacked heavily against them, and yes they were aware that the Penguins roster reads more like an All-Star game lineup than an everyday club.
Still, the upstart...
Those who were wondering how effective Sidney Crosby would be in his first game back didn’t have to wait long to find out.
The Penguins star, who skated with a softball-style facemask Friday night after missing 13 games with a broken jaw, wasted no time getting his name back on the scoresheet. Crosby scored twice in the first eight minutes of Game 2 as Pittsburgh built an early...
In his first game back from a broken jaw, Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby buried a goal against the New York Islanders.
PITTSBURGH — It’s game on for Sidney Crosby.
The Penguins’ star says he will play Friday night in Game 2 of the playoff series with the New York Islanders after missing more than a month with a broken jaw. Crosby skated with usual linemates Pascal Dupuis and Chris Kuntiz on Friday morning and expects to be in the lineup as Pittsburgh tries to go up 2-0 in the best-of-seven...
I might have to admit, that I agree with Mike Milbury and Jeremy Roenick on this one here. I thought it was a bad call. I also thought that Sidney Crosby went down really easy. The word embellishment was on the tip of my tongue as well, after I saw the play live.
If I am not mistaken, they're kind of accusing Sidney Crosby of taking a bit of a dive there... Is that what others...
