Set an Email Reminder for NHL Playoffs: Pittsburgh Penguins at New York Islanders
When: Sunday, May 5, 2013
Crosby returned for the Penguins, and scored 2 goals to help them jump out to a 3-1 lead in the first period, but the Islanders held strong from that point. New York didn't allow the Penguins another goal, and rallied to score 3 more of their own. Winning their first playoff game in 6 years is a huge confidence building boost for the Islanders, especially after the first game dismantling they were subject to. We'll see if they have it in them to hang with the mighty Penguins for the remainder of the series, or if it was just a fluke.
