Patric Hornqvist scored a pair of goals, Marc-Andre Fleury made 34 saves and the Penguins knocked the Islanders from the ranks of the unbeaten with a 3-1 win Saturday night in Pittsburgh.

It’s not often a hockey game in October has the intensity of a playoff game in mid-April. This one did.

Dallas scored twice in the final three minutes to beat the Penguins, who also lost winger Pascal Dupuis, who left the ice on a stretcher in the second period.

The quick-strike Penguins offense was off and running again, scoring a pair of early power-play goals, and the rout appeared to be on Thursday night at Consol Energy Center.

When Bill Guerin talks, it would seem prudent to listen. As a player, Guerin’s fiery locker room presence helped fuel the Penguins’ 2008-09 Stanley Cup run.

So, when Guerin, now an assistant general manager, was effusive in his praise of Penguins first-round pick Kasperi Kapanen during prospects development camp in July, the NHL took notice.

Ho hum! Another offseason snooze-fest for the Pittsburgh Penguins. OK. They did fire their general manager and head coach. They brought in NHL lifer Jim Rutherford to replace the ousted Ray Shero after an interesting, if not awkward, courtship of NHL TV analyst Pierre McGuire.

And, after clinging to Dan Bylsma much longer than some would have liked, eventually dispatched him in favor of former WHL mastermind Mike Johnston.

The Penguins didn’t have to go far when they added forward Sam Lafferty, a native of Hollidaysburg, PA, in the fourth-round of this year’s draft. Lafferty, standing at a sturdy 6-0 and 175-pounds, played in 25 games for Deerfield Academy in Massachusetts, where he notched 21 goals and 34 assists for 55 points.

Dave Weaver, the head coach of the Mid-State Mustangs, Lafferty’s youth program, spoke of Lafferty’s potential.
