Pittsburgh Penguins Start Slow, Come Back to Win Against New York Islanders
The Islanders dominated the Penguins in the first period scoring the first goal and keeping the puck in their end for the majority of time, but the Penguins came out in the second period strong and ready to play their game scoring two goals in each of the second and third periods.
This win makes 11 in a row for the Penguins and ties with the Chicago Blackhawks for the longest winning streak this season. Brandon Sutter continues to be a force having been clutch and scoring the game-winning goal for the second time this month while the Penguins continue to thrive without Evgeni Malkin and Kris Letang so one can only hope that they’ll dominate even more when the two powerhouses return to the lineup. They continue to be day-to-day, but are hoping to be back against the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday.
The Penguins play the Flyers Sunday and will look to beat the Blackhawks streak with win #12 at the CONSOL Energy Center. The puck is set to drop at 7:30 pm (est) and note this time was changed from 7:00 for TV broadcast purposes.
