Tomas Vokoun was sharp in making 33 saves, and Brandon Sutter snapped a tie early in the third period for the Pittsburgh Penguins, who rallied for a 4-2 victory over the New York Islanders that stretched their winning streak to 11 games on Friday night.
Sutter took a pass from Matt Cooke in front off a 2-on-1 rush and scored past goalie Evgeni Nabokov 1:46 into the third period. Joe Vitale and Chris Kunitz had second-period goals for Pittsburgh, which erased a pair of one-goal deficits after a sluggish first period.
Pascal Dupuis added an empty-net goal with less than a second remaining, with an assist from Vokoun, to make it 4-2.
Mark Streit put the Islanders ahead in the first, and Josh Bailey answered Vitale's goal to make it 2-1 in the second, but New York lost its third straight at home of a four-game homestand.
The Islanders have led or been tied in the third period of 25 of their 31 games, but have won only 13 (13-9-3).
New York has been outscored 9-0 in the third period...
