New York Islanders (11-11-3) @ Pittsburgh Penguins (17-8-0)
ROOT, MSG PLUS, 7:00 pm/et
Consol Energy Center - Pittsburgh, PA
Back-to-back games for both the Pens and the Isles. The Islanders won 5-2 against the Capitals yesterday. No word on Malkin yet.
Season Series: 1-1-0
Last meeting that counted: February 5, 2013. Penguins won 4-2.
What we said in our recap:
Remember when the Isles walked into the CONSOLl last week and drubbed the Pens? Neither do we. The Pens snuck out of the ****-hole that is Long Island Tuesday night with a 4-2 win. All of a sudden, the Pens have won four straight.
Goals from Neal, Depres, and Suttertron led the way. Dupes sealed it with an empty-netter.

Sidney Crosby tied a career high with five assists, and Chris Kunitz posted his second hat trick of the season in the Pittsburgh Penguins' 6-1 rout of the New York Islanders on Sunday night.
Crosby's big night boosted his point total to an NHL-leading 45 and helped the Penguins win their fifth straight. James Neal had a goal and three assists, and Pascal Dupuis scored twice...
The injury suffered by Pittsburgh Penguins star Evgeni Malkin on Saturday night will likely keep him out for one or two weeks. The good news is that it isn't related to any sort of concussion issues, according to the team. Instead the ailment is simply being listed as an upper-body injury, and most are speculating it could have something to do with the shoulder. Malkin took...
Only a few more hours until game time as the NY Islanders visit the Penguins and the Gremlin, Michael Grabner will be playing his 200th NHL Game.
Many have been discussing Grabs ice time and his success rate, but Jack Capuano feels he is doling out ice time appropriately. His grind line is clicking and doing damage, so they will see the ice perhaps more than Grabner. But maybe...
The Isles have always played the Caps close. (Clydeorama)
The Washington Capitals are in Uniondale, New York, this afternoon to take on the Islanders as they play the first of two back-to-back games on the weekend. New York, who lost their last game against the Rangers on Thursday, are 10-11-3 and 4-4-2 over their last ten. Their record gives them 23 standings points and...

Boy if you want to talk about a really interesting last 7 days for the New York Ranger and New York Islander prospects then what will they do during this upcoming week for an encore? Depending on whether you are playing in the NCAA or the Canadian juniors; this week is "sudden death" or "new life" week for the prospects and their teams...

It is that time of the year where teams with New York Ranger or New York Islander prospects are doing scoreboard watching. With all the jockeying for playoff seeding going on at this time of the season you had better believe that just like their fans, the players and coaches are keeping track of what the other teams are doing with some exceptions...

Saturday night prospect hockey was not for the faint of heart if you are a fan of either the New York Rangers or New York Islanders as games that looked like they were decided sometimes weren't. And if you are wondering about who the picture is then you aren't alone.
Our first prospect to see his season come to an end also saw his college career...
Interesting week for Crosby and Malkin. On Monday they scored big goals minutes apart. On Saturday they both took scary, monster hits.
First was Malkin, who was hurt on this hit from JVR:
The Pens said this:
MALKIN UPDATE: Upper body injury on Malkin. Not a head injury. He was kept out for precautionary reasons.

The Rangers head to Washington to kick off a four game road trip against the Capitals. The Rangers come in off a disappointing 3-2 loss to the Senators on Friday while Washington lost 5-2 to the Islanders. New York is just 3-4-1 on the road, scoring 13 goals while allowing 19. Washington is 7-5 at home and 6-4 in their last 10. After today's game, the Rangers will be at the mid...
Malkin has upper-body injury. He'll be further evaluated tonight. Coach Bylsma said he's not concerned its a concussion.

How did he get hurt last night?
from Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,
Back when the league was adding the Panthers, Mighty Ducks, Predators and Blue Jackets, complaints were common that the quality of play suffered, that there weren't enough skilled forwards and defensemen. But the global pool is now far deeper. USA Hockey youth registrations have soared since the Florida/Anaheim expansion...
So the Penguins are in Toronto which is the kind of thing that usually gives us seizures.
Sid is in Air Canada Centre for the first time since 2010.
God, this could be either the most beautiful or the most ugly thing to ever happen.
LEAST TIME TAKEN TO GET READY FOR PROM
It has all the makings of a magical spring night.
