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 night...
And the Minnesota Wild needed a win badly justd to get on the board after losing the first two games of their 1/8 series with the Chicago Blackhawks... and after Duncan Keith's goal with a little less than three minutes left sent the game to free hockey.
But the Wild got some help from Jason Zucker...
From a helluvan angle...

Chris Kunitz with the power play goal in overtime.

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?
Pittsburgh Penguins Chris Kunitz fired home a goal 8:44 into overtime Sunday, sending them to a 5-4 win over the New York Islanders and a 2-1 lead in their quarterfinals playoff series.
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.

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.
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.
