													Jared McCann.- MATT SUNDAY  DKPS

Center Leo Komarov, left wing Anders Lee and center Brock Nelson also were able to beat Matthew Murray to light the lamp, as the Islanders seized a 3-0 series lead, pushing the Penguins to the brink of elimination. He can add to his tally when the Islanders go for the series sweep on Tuesday.

It didn't last. Eberle tied it 28 seconds later and Nelson's wrist shot put NY in front to stay just 1:02 after Eberle's third playoff goal in as many games.

When the Penguins thought they had an advantage - following Garrett Wilson's goal 12:54 into the first period for a 1-0 lead - the Islanders answered right back. Robin Lehner continues to build his wall brick-by-brick. The two - who combined for 75 goals and 101 assists during the regular season - have yet to record a point in the playoffs. After the Penguins broke a scoreless tie midway through the second period, the Islanders scored three unanswered goals the rest of the way.

The officiating in this first-round series between the Penguins and Islanders has been pretty bad thus far.

Amy Hennig’s Star Wars game "looked and felt like Uncharted"
Kennedy and Star Wars have been roundly criticized for what appears to be a lack of planning for the current Star Wars trilogy. It was handsome , it was raw and it had a weight to it that no other film in the series has been able to capture so far.


If the Islanders felt any pressure while taking their first 2-0 postseason lead since the 1983 Stanley Cup final - when they completed their run of four straight championships by sweeping Wayne Gretzky and the Edmonton Oilers - it didn't show.

It didn't quite work.

The Penguins were penalized eight times in the 3-1 loss, giving the Islanders six power play opportunities. Not that the Penguins were looking for sympathy.

Now they find themselves in a spot that seemed improbable at best a week ago: heading to Game 4 with a chance to make Pittsburgh's playoff stay the shortest of the Crosby/Malkin era. NY also kept Pittsburgh's stars quiet as Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Phil Kessel, and Jake Guentzel combined for zero points.
