Dennis Schneidler-USA TODAY Sports

Anders Lee scored a first period power play goal for New York with Ryan Pulock lighting the lamp in the second. Lee also had an assist and Josh Bailey added a pair of helpers for the Islanders who received 38 saves from Thomas Greiss.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have been dominant in all areas in fashioning a four game winning streak capped off by a 5-0 victory versus Vancouver on Saturday. The Canucks needed better play at the defensive end where Jacob Markstrom gave up five goals on 35 shots.

The Penguins received a pair of goals each from Sydney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin with Phil Kessel joining the scoring column. Jake Guentzel logged a pair of assists for Pittsburgh to make the 29 saves of Casey DeSmith a winner.

Islanders are 5-0 in their last 5 vs. Metropolitan and Islanders are 6-1 in their last 7 vs. Eastern Conference and  Islanders are 5-22 in their last 27 when their opponent allows 2 goals or less in their previous game. Penguins are 4-0 in their last 4 overall and Penguins are 1-6 in their last 7 games playing on 2 days rest and Penguins are 1-5 in their last 6 Tuesday games. Islanders are 7-24 in the last 31 meetings in Pittsburgh and Islanders are 18-39 in the last 57 meetings. 

Given the way the Penguins have been playing I think they are worth a shot here…
