Letang and Crosby combine on overtime game-winner as Penguins beat Islanders 3-2

PSR Logo
Kris Letang scored a goal in overtime to give the Penguins a 3-2 win Friday night against the Islanders in Brooklyn.

Matt Murray got the start in goal for the Penguins. Murray left Wednesday’s game after he took a stick to the face from teammate Evgeni Malkin.

Sidney Crosby scored the first goal of the game, giving the Penguins a 1-0 lead midway through the 1st period. The Islanders answered back with two goals from Brock Nelson and Anthony Beauvillier.

Defenseman Trevor Daley tied the game for the Penguins shortly before the 2nd period ended.

Crosby set up the game winner when he faked a shot and passed it across the ice to Letang for a one-timer.

Chris Kunitz assisted both of the Penguins first two goals of the night.

The win gives the Penguins their first win since the team's 7-1 beating in Washington on Wednesday night.

The Islanders entered the game with 13 points, which is good for last place in the Metropolitan division. The loss gives the Islanders a four game losing streak. Their last win was November 7th against Vancouver.

The last time these two teams played was October 27th when the Islanders fell 4-2 at PPG Paints arena.

The win improves the Penguins record to 11-4-2. They will travel to Buffalo to face the Sabres Saturday night at 7 p.m.
