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 most exciting action of the 2013 first-round schedule, but that's exactly what has happened. This is absolutely insane hockey the New York Islanders are giving the Pittsburgh Penguins all they can handle and no one on earth guess this would happen.Today, the New York Islanders had an absolutely outstanding start, the type dreams are made of dominating the number one seed Pittsburgh Penguins for the first 8 to 10 minutes, rewarded with a two-goal lead for their efforts. It took the Pittsburgh Penguins 19 seconds to ease the two-goal deficit taking advantage of a 5- on 3 cashing in on powerplay goals ...

Chris Kunitz with the power play goal in overtime.
With a healthy line-up, Jarome Iginla would likely play alongside Sidney Crosby and Pascal Dupuis. Evgeni Malkin would play with James Neal and Chris Kunitz. Those combinations have proven successful in the past. There's no doubt that Evgeni Malkin and James Neal have great chemistry with one another and Chris Kunitz played well alongside them last season. Crosby and Dupuis also...

There are some things in life that money can’t buy. For everything else, there’s the next day where you have a massive hangover.
The Penguins have truly taken a hit in the court of public opinion with their games 2 and 3 performance. Do you believe that they are still Cup contenders or Cup pretenders?
The Penguins have had a lot of trouble with the New York Islanders through the first three games in this series. What was expected to be a quick stroll through the first round of the playoffs has turned into a major struggle for the top seed in the Eastern Conference. Pittsburgh's problems stem with poor puck management in their own end, undisciplined play, and lack of composure...

The match was a cliffhanger as New York almost pulled off a late comeback, forcing overtime with a pair of third-period goals from Kyle Okposo and John Tavares.

The Pittsburgh Penguins went down 2-0 in the first playoff game at Nassau Coliseum since 1742.
But then two goals in nineteen seconds (on the power play) tied it up, the Pens took a 3-2 lead, and a 4-2 lead before the Islanders came back to force overtime.
Chris Kunitz's second goal of the day gave the Pens the win and a 2-1 series lead with Game 4 Monday...
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...
The Big Leagues The Penguins captain thwarted retirement and his own broken body.
When Dan Bylsma took a seat at the table in front of the Stanley Cup back-drop, the microphones had all been tested. However, something went wrong and when he went to answer his first post game question, a long, loud electronic screech filled the 60,000 square foot exhibit hall and it reverberated to your bones. âThat was like the building tonight.â the deadpan Bylsma...
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...

Are you awake? Hopefully the Penguins are. Today we'll get to see if they decided to learn anything from game two, or if this is the same Penguins team that believes their own hype and doesn't learn from their mistakes...
