Game 29: New York Islanders @ Pittsburgh Penguins

Game 29: Isles @ Pens (7:38-FSN/WXDX)

Tonight is the 2nd of back to back games. The New York Islanders come to town. The last meeting between these 2 teams the Penguins won the game 5-3 on Long Island. Malkin had the Natural and Crosby had a goal and 2 assists in the contest. They had to wipe out a 2-goal deficit in the process.
The Islanders are coming off a 4-3 loss to the Hated Philadelphia Flyers the other night. I always feel for a team that loses to Phily. Veteran Doug Weight is playing some serious hockey for the Islanders. 26 Points this season.

Check out Drive for Five, he knows a lot more about the Islanders than i do.


The Penguins are trying to snap a 3-game losing streak tonight. Last night the Devil scored more goals than the Pens. I thought the Pens put in a solid game last night, they didnt deserve the results they got. The Devils just got all the bounces and the Refs gave them 2 goals. But to be honest, i really don't want to talk about it. i see bright things in the future, like Fleury returning to the goal crease, Whitney back to the blueline, and if you look far into the future, Gonchar QBing the Power play again. Losing the 2 best defensemen and the all star goalie are starting to take it's toll on the Pens. But like coach T says, "excuse are for loser".
