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.
