ISLANDERS (2-2-1) at PENGUINS (3-2-0)




The Islanders' five-game road trip continues Tuesday as they pay a visit to the division rival Penguins to kick off the season series. Pittsburgh, who defeated the Ottawa Senators in shootout on Sunday, looks to continue its home dominance of New York -- having won 13 of its last 14 against the Islanders in the Steel City.

Tuesday's clash at Consol Energy Center marks the first of five meetings between the Islanders and Penguins this season. The Atlantic Division foes will face off twice more in Pittsburgh on Mar. 10 and Mar. 30 in addition to a pair of contests at Nassau Coliseum on Feb. 5 and Mar. 22. Last season, Pittsburgh claimed four of six head-to-head games, but the two New York victories came in a late-season home-and-home sweep to derail the Penguins' chances of catching the New York Rangers for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference.

Penguins: It was a goaltending duel in Ottawa on Sunday night, as Craig Anderson and Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 30-plus shots apiece and kept the opposition off the scoreboard for the entirety of the third period and overtime. Fortunately for Pittsburgh, its potent shootout lineup was too much for the Senators' netminder to contain.

James Neal, Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin scored in the shootout as the Penguins earned a 2-1 win to snap their two-game losing skid. While Pittsburgh struggled to find the back of the net all night and was locked into a defensive struggle, Neal said the win is all that matters as his team continues to battle through its condensed schedule.

"It was a little sloppy at times, but you've got to win them like that," Neal told NHL.com. "It's going to be like that at times this year. Fleury was big for us tonight."

Islanders: New York hopes to rebound from an excruciating road loss Sunday night to the Winnipeg Jets. Trailing 2-1 in the third period, the Islanders received timely goals from John Tavares, Matt Moulson and Mark Streit in less than 10 minutes to take a 4-2 lead. But a costly mistake proved to be detrimental to New York's hopes of escaping MTS Centre with a clean two points.

David Ullstrom, who scored earlier in the game for New York, committed a hooking penalty at the 12:15 mark of the third period, which led to a Dustin Byfuglien power-play goal that turned the tide of the game. Alexander Burmistrov then notched the equalizer late in the third period which ultimately forced overtime. Less than two minutes into the extra session, Evander Kane scored his third goal of the season to seal the Islanders' fate.

"We just have to regroup and get better," Islanders' goalie Evgeni Nabokov told NHL.com after the game. "We've got to move on. I thought that in the third period we came out with a little bit of intensity. It felt like we could take it to them, and we did, actually. But we need 60 minutes of effort from [all] the guys on the ice."

And congrats to Casey Cizikas on scoring his first NHL goal in such a deliciously hard working and unassisted fashion.

Was at the game. What an..odd first period. Two teams that have lots of speed and really seemed in slow motion. I got so used to these 3-2 Isles/Pens games that usually involve crazy up and down play with goalies standing on their heads all night long to see that poop on a stick (from a Pens fan view of course haha) performance. This whole Neal on the point on the PP thing has to go. And holy hell was Nabby on, what genius picked him to be 2nd star instead of first?

I enjoyed watching the game last night, Pens got it stuck to them at home by the Isles.

If the Isles can keep up this play they'll be one hell of a team in the East.

Only thing that sucked was I have Malkin on 1 of my fantasy teams and he didn't get me any points.
