Pre-Game
Same goaltending matchup as in Game 1, as the Islanders look to avenge a tough loss. David Ullstrom is in for Marty Reasoner. Matt Carkner is in for Thomas Hickey. Oh, and, Sidney Crosby is back in the lineup for the Penguins for the first time since March. Hopefully this is a fun night.

1st Period
0:43: Pittsburgh gets the start they want and Evgeni Malkin puts them on the board early. He got 2, maybe 3 chances after cutting to the front of the net. 1-0 Pittsburgh. Malkin took the feed from Jarome Iginla.

2:23: Islanders are going to take the game's first penalty. Andrew MacDonald goes away for slashing Jussi Jokinen in front of the Isles net.

3:19: Sidney Crosby makes it 2-0 on the power play. Right off the draw, a puck got deflected wide, but bounced back to the front of the net, and Iginla found Crosby on the left side for a tally from close range.

4:10: Josh Bailey with a drive from the right circle, but Marc-Andre Fleury makes the save.

6:21: Big chance now for the Islanders, as Deryk Engelland is called for a cross-check on Casey Cizikas behind the Pittsburgh net. Isles were 0-for-4 in the last game on the man advantage, but a goal could finally quiet the loud CONSOL Energy crowd.

7:04: Brad Boyes delivers with the power play goal, making it 2-1. Nice puck movement from the Isles. I think everyone touched it once. Matt Moulson from down low fed Boyes across the slot, and it may have hit the defenseman's stick on the way in.

7:22 And Pittsburgh re-takes a 2-goal lead. Crosby scores from the tough angle on a rebound while wrapping around the goal. 3-1 Penguins.

8:18: John Tavares with a great chance in front but Fleury holds his ground.

10:38: New York heading to another power play. Engelland again, this time for hi-sticking on Boyes.

11:46: Lubomir Visnovsky throws one at the net, and Moulson jams at it a couple of times, But no luck.

11:46: They've changed the official scoring on the Isles goal from earlier. Moulson from Tavares and Mark Streit.

18:01: Malkin snuck in and had a great chance from the low slot, but Nabokov shifted to his right to stay in front of it.

19:31: Travis Hamonic and Matt Cooke get into a little skirmish inside the Islanders blue line. Both players are getting 2 (Hamonic-roughing, Cooke-slashing), and we'll play 4-on-4.

End 1st: PIT 3 NYI 1. Shots: NYI 20 PIT 12.

2nd Period
4:58: Kyle Okposo and Matt Niskanen drop the gloves behind the play. Okposo landed a hard right early on, and drew a fair amount of blood from the defenseman. First fighting major of Okposo's career. Not a whole lot more for Niskanen.

5:12: Fleury left a little opening, and Colin McDonald chips one in from along the goal line. Gritty play behind the goal with Keith Aucoin, and it's 3-2.

6:50: Visnovsky makes a hard hit on Brenden Morrow from behind and he'll go away for boarding. Pens are 1-for-1 on the man advantage.

8:16: This one's getting heated. Brian Strait hits Crosby in the Isles zone and clears the puck. Iginla comes in with a retalliatory shot, and the power play is over. Iginla heads to the box. 34 seconds on 4-on-4 before an Isles PP.

10:37: Matt Martin ties it at 3-3 just after the end of the power play. Bailey fired a shot from the center and it came off the boards to the front of the goal Martin slapped at the rebound and it caught a piece of Fleury as it just crossed the line.

13:27: Tavares with a nice backhand opportunity from Boyes in the center of the zone, but Fleury cut off the angle.

15:32: MacDonald stays down on the ice in the corner to Nabokov's left after taking a hit into the boards from Tanner Glass. Now he's skating off under his own power.

16:31: Tavares is in the box now for four minutes for a hi-sticking penalty on Morrow. Morrow was leaned over and took it above the nose.

19:23: Crosby hit a post, Malkin pushed a rebound wide, then Nabokov made a fantastic save on Crosby. Wow.

End 2nd: Still 31 seconds of power play time remaining for Pittsburgh. NYI 3 PIT 3. Shots: NYI 34 PIT 25.

3rd Period
6:37: Crosby took a feed from Chris Kunitz, and snapped one on goal, but Nabokov with a huge glove save to keep it tied.

10:29: Malkin with a spin and a shot, but Nabokov gave him nothing. A little shove from the Pens center on Matt Martin after the play, but the referees are letting it go. Both teams getting under the other's skin tonight.

12:23: Another wild bounce off the end boards, and another goal. This one by Matt Moulson. Original shot came from Okposo, and Moulson may have gotten a piece, unless Fleury put it in on himself. First lead of the series for the Isles, 4-3.
