Watch: PHN Penguins Live Postgame, Pens Blanket Islanders 1-0



Pittsburgh Penguins, Dan Kingerski

They do not have to be pretty to count. The Pittsburgh Penguins out scrapped the New York Islanders, 1-0 at UBS Arena on Friday night.

Kasperi Kapanen scored the only goal. Tristan Jarry notched his third shutout in five games. And the New York Islanders lost their eighth straight game.

The Penguins thoroughly dominated the Islanders in their new UBS Arena over the first 10 minutes. However, the Penguins didn’t get a goal. In fact, neither team scored in the first period.

The Penguins outshot New York 12-6 in the first period and had a few more glorious chances in the first half of the second period.

The Penguins had a pair of breakaways late in the third period as the Islanders pressed, but Islanders goalies Ilya Sorokin nullified Jason Zucker and Sidney Crosby.

What did the Penguins do right? Who had a rough night and who was on his skates?

Comments sure have tailed off lately. People only want to complain and never give any praise. This current win streak was easy to predict. Every season has up and downs. I choose to not overreact either way. The boys are playing well even though they are not clicking on all cylinders. To me that says this team has a higher ceiling than many expected. I like this penguins team and i liked last years team as well. Sue me

Jarry currently has the best numbers among Canadian netminders, so I do hope he gets chosen as the third goalie…

and, by the way, although Greek influence is rather omnipresent, there is no “omnicron” in the Greek alphabet. The letters are omicron (little o) and omega (big O).
