Guy's reaction behind the net says it all...
Josh Bailey capped a furious ending for the Islanders, who were trailing one minute, and then winning the next. What a disaster for Jeff Zatkoff, who played an OK game, only to give up two goals late.
Pens have to turn around and play the Leafs tomorrow in Toronto.

Josh Bailey's goal with 1:40 left capped the Islanders' furious third-period rally, and New York edged the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3 on Friday night.
Bailey took a feed from Frans Nielsen in front of the net and beat goalie Jeff Zatkoff for his fourth goal of the season. The Islanders scored three times in the final 7:14 and erased deficits of 2-1 and 3-2.
Nielsen, Matt Moulson...
Brian Strait is day-to-day with an upper body injury and will miss tomorrow’s game against Pittsburgh. That leaves the Islanders with six defenders so Radek Martinek will make his season debut tomorrow night.
For a long the New York Islanders have been a mediocre franchise. Instead of keeping their young talent they like to trade it in order to acquire big names. For example they have traded Zdeno Chara, Roberto Luongo, and others and in return; no megastars. Although these questionable moves were made nothing even remotely matches […]
The legendary saga of Rick DiPietro has continued. He has signed a PTO with AHL’s Charlotte Checkers. Yes, he can’t even get a standard player contract. No one could have predicted that DiPietro would spend more time on the IR than on the ice, but he has been limited to 47 games since 2008. His injuries troubles began in March 2007 when he [...]
The Islanders will head into to Pittsburgh to battle the division leading Penguins tonight at 7pm. The Isles will start goalie Evgeni Nabokov in net as they try and tackle two points away from the high flying Penguins. I would expect Islander backup goalie Kevin Poulin to start tomorrow night in Philadelphia.
The only scratch for tonight is Eric Boulton so Brock Nelson will...
If we have learned nothing over the past year and a half the New York Islanders are always entertaining. The game isn't always perfect, or pretty or executed properly yet the Isles find a way to stick around and the next thing you know they find a way to steal a point or two.
Last night in Pittsburgh the Islanders hung around; killed off many Pittsburgh power plays and...
The last time the Penguins faced the New York Islanders was in the 2013 NHL playoffs where the Islanders had basically melted down and succumbed to what was a very lucky Pittsburgh Penguins team. Flash-forward to Friday night and you saw basically the same Islanders team that continues to matchup really well against this team. Hate to say it, but this was about the most complete...
It sounds like Rick DiPietro will make his triumphant (?) return to professional hockey. According to Larry Brooks of the New York Post, DiPietro has signed a professional tryout contract with the Charlotte Checkers, American Hockey League affiliate of the Carolina Hurricanes.
Matt Moulson with his sixth goal of the season and fourth power play goal started off the first, but the Penguins wouldnât go sulk in a corner. A little over three minutes later, the Pens tied it up with a Jokinen wrist shot. Deflating to say the least. Then Crosby scored the lone goal in the second period to put the Penguins in the lead on a Matt Donovan mistake. Heâs...

This evening’s contest between the New York Islanders and Pittsburgh Penguins features two of Canada’s best centremen going head-to-head. John Tavares of the Isles and Sidney Crosby of the Penguins have many things in common that make them so great.…Read more →The post John Tavares & Sidney Crosby – two of Canada’s best at centre appeared first on The Hockey Daily.
Don't be surprised if this game starts a big-time run for the Islanders. Even though they got outshot, a stat that was aided by five fruitless Penguins power plays, the Islanders are starting to become a really tough team again. Don't get us wrong; their defense is still Swiss cheese, and no one has any idea which Evgeni Nabokov is going to show up on any given night...
Pens have a back-to-back this weekend, and they're fortunate enough to have one of those games at home. Zatkoff has probably been eating flies and talking to himself in the corner since the Florida game, so it would be nice to give him a home start to get him a little more comfortable. Are we short-changing the Islanders? Nope. We're never gonna do that again after what we...
The Pittsburgh Penguins needed six games to eliminate the New York Islanders from the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs last season.
A fifth straight regular-season victory over the visiting Islanders on Friday night will keep the Penguins from losing consecutive games for the first time this season.
After taking four of five from New York during the regular season...
