Pre-Game:
Evgeni Nabokov and Marc-Andre Fleury going head-to-head tonight. Sidney Crosby is not cleared to play, after suffering an injury when these two teams met on March 30.

1st Period
1:40: Brian Strait takes the game's first penalty for interference. First power play of the night.

3:05: Nabokov goes down to the ice after taking a Jarome Iginla slap shot. Looked like it caught him in the mask at full speed.

3:12: Nabokov with a great save on a tipped Kris Letang shot. Jussi Jokinen redirected it but Nabokov held on. Pittsburgh's power play is always entertaining.

4:30: Beau Bennett gives the Penguins an early lead. Took the puck in, and from a hard angle found a sliver of room over Nabokov and banked it in off the cross-bar. 1-0 Penguins on the power play. Evgeni Malkin with the assist.

5:14: Casey Cizikas just almost evened things up on a rebound opportunity in front, but Fleury dove to make the second save.

13:23: Islanders can't clear a puck off a crazy scramble, and Pascal Dupuis is the beneficiary, scoring to make it 2-0. Jarome Iginla and Craig Adams had chances before that.

15:01: Matt Moulson draws an interference minor on Matt Cooke, and the Isles have a big chance to get back in this one.

17:01: Still 2-0 Penguins.

19:16: Mark Streit gets called for holding, and the Penguins go back to the man advantage.

End 1st: PIT 2 NYI 0. Shots: NYI 8 PIT 13.

2nd Period
1:19: Penguins up 3-0 after a Letang PPG, right after a two-man advantage became a one-man advantage. Letang took his time and wristed one through Andrew MacDonald and Nabokov. Now we're back to even strength.

1:51: Another quick one from Dupuis, and Kevin Poulin will come in to make his playoff debut. Dupuis deflected a point shot and got his own rebound, with no defensive help in front. 4-0 Penguins.

7:00: Poulin just made a nice stop on Paul Martin's wraparound attempt and covered up.

13:07: Tanner Glass sneaks sneaks one through the five-hole and makes it 5-0 from a hard angle.

End 2nd: PIT 5 NYI 0. Shots: NYI 18 PIT 21. With a Pittsburgh penalty coming late, the Islanders will have 1:52 of power play time to start the third.

3rd Period
1:50: Fleury makes a nice sliding save on Frans Nielsen toward the tail end of a power play.

3:04: Douglas Murray goes away for holding, and the Isles will go to the man advantage again.

9:44: Poulin with a big save on Craig Adams rebound.

17:50: After a collision between Marty Reasoner and Jussi Jokinen, it looks like Reasoner is going away. He'll get two for tripping, a five-minute major for kneeing and a game misconduct. Jokinen looked a little shaken up after the hit. Islanders coaching staff not thrilled about that call. They'll play out the string with a Penguins power play.
