11:58: Josh Bailey, on last night's come-from-behind victory at Pittsburgh: "It was a good team win last night. We stuck with it. One thing I've liked about our team this year, is even when we're not playing our best we've found a way to stick around in games and give ourselves a chance. It paid off last night."

12:00: Bailey, on his game-winning goal: "It was a pretty interesting play. Okie made a heck of a play on the first one. He has both D sucked in, and for a split-second my heart broke when I didn't put that first one home. Then a split-second later, I see Fransy winding up. I pretty well know he's going to give it to me there. I was able to get a little bounce and chip it home. It was a pretty exciting play."

12:03: Pierre-Marc Bouchard, on scoring his first goal as an Islander last night: "It was a pretty good feeling to get that first one. It's a big weight off the shoulders. Team-wise, it was a huge win. It was a big two points in Pittsburgh. It wasn't an easy one, but we found a way to get the win."

12:05: Bouchard, on if Friday's win was a character-building victory: "Definitely. I think our PK did a great job to keep us in the game and in the third, we just found a way. We worked at it. We just kept believing that we could win, and that's what we did."

Check back this evening for live updates of tonight's game between the Islanders and the Flyers. Game time is 7:00 p.m.
