Game #76 - at New York Islanders

Pittsburgh Penguins (43-25-7, 93 pts) at New York Islanders (33-35-7, 73 pts)

The Islanders aren't officially eliminated from the playoffs yet, but they are just about there. I think the term you could use is "playing out the string".

The Pens should thank the Isles for doing a huge favor and beating the Devils on Friday night. Mario can buy them an extra round of golf after the Pens beat them twice in the next three games.

DiPietro is out for the year, so it's Wade Dubielewicz to the rescue... again. The Isles started their new backup, Joey MacDonald, in Philly on Sunday night so the Pens are pretty much assured of seeing Wade.

The Pens are two points ahead of the Devils and one point behind the Habs, with a game in hand over the Habs. This is a game to earn two points.

Let's Go Pens!
