PHN Extra: Pens Report Card vs. Islanders, ‘Not Enough’



The Pittsburgh Penguins report card against the New York Islanders is better than it was Tuesday. Strong efforts from several players lifted the Penguins to a shootout, but the pesky, scrappy, disciplined, counter-punching Islanders are the type of team which gives the Penguins fits. And they did so again, Thursday at the Barclays Center. The Islanders won in a shootout, 3-2.

The Islanders made it their type of game. Get the full postgame analysis with more of the game details, team strategies and reactions in our Postgame Analysis story here.

Evgeni Malkin and Mike Sullivan said the Penguins were better, but Malkin said: “It was not enough.”
