Islanders Take Down Penguins 4-2

First Period

7:35 PM It took the Islanders about 45 seconds to get on the board for a rare first period goal! Satan waited patiently and beat Sabourin glove side.

7:40 PM Sillinger is called for a penalty
7:42 PM Isles kill off the penalty to Sillinger
7:49 PM Comeau barely misses on his first NHL goal! He will get one tonight!
8:08 PM Laraque muscles his way around the net and dishes off to Roberts – Christensen bangs in the rebound.
8:10 PM Meyer takes a hooking (phantom) penalty

Second Period

My cousin Chris and I ran to 7-11 for beer and then waited upstairs for the wings to be delivered.

We saw the Pittsburgh goal and then Comeau feed Jackman to Hilbert!

8:56 PM Dee (7th Woman) is probably screaming – Bergenheim gets called for elbowing and then takes another 2 for arguing with the referee.

9:01 PM HUGGGEEEE penalty kill

Hopefully they take the momentum of killing that huge penalty into the third and come out playing like they have when not taking penalties. THAT is the key to the third – staying out of the box. The referees don’t need any extra reasons to call penalties against the Isles. They need to stick to their game and bring it to the Pens – they have outplayed them for the most part and need to keep the pressure on.

Third Period

9:25 PM Double minor on Kennedy for High Sticking my boy Campoli – BIG PP chance here
9:37 PM HUNTER SCOORRRRESSSS!!!! Less than a minute later and its 4-2 Islanders!
9:47 PM Guerin takes a stupid lazy hooking penalty with under 5 to go

What a game! Satan, Hilbert, Comeau and Hunter all notch goals. Comeau had his first point, first goal and first game winning goal to make his first multipoint night of his NHL career! What a game by Comeau.

They hung in there and really stepped up when they needed to, would have been a superb performance if they did not take so many penalties. Can’t wait to hear Nolan’s reaction.
