Game #30 - at New York Islanders

2011-12 Game 30

Pittsburgh Penguins (16-9-4, 36 points) at New York Islanders (9-11-6, 24 points)

Why does it matter?

The Isles will get a taste of the Pens without Sid, after they were thoroughly trounced when he returned.  It shouldn't matter - the Pens have dominated the Isles in recent history, and their power play has been a big reason why - it has been clicking at over 20% over the past few seasons against the Isles.

What has been happening lately?
  • Pens - Another inconsistent effort against the Flyers on Thursday.
  • Islanders - They're hot - going 4-0-2 in their past six games with wins over Dallas, Tampa Bay, New Jersey and Buffalo (and two losses in overtime against Chicago).
That's all I have time for today - Let's Go Pens!
