Islanders Vs. Penguins Final Score: Pittsburgh Blanks New York 3-0

The New York Islanders hosted the Pittsburgh Penguins Tuesday night (Oct. 25, 2011) at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, New York.

Most of the chatter heading into tonight’s game centered around last February’s rumble between the two rivals, but for all the talk about throwing down, the Islanders sure didn’t put up much of a fight.

When all was said and done, Pittsburgh blanked New York by a score of 3-0.

The visiting team got on the board late in the first period after Pascal Dupuis (assisted by Brooks Orpik) wristed one in from 14 feet out. Richard Park (assisted by Arron Asham) followed suit just 20 seconds into the second period and Jordan Staal (assisted by Pascal Dupuis) poured a little salt on the wound in the final frame.

The Islanders, who have now lost three in a row, drop to 3-4-0 (6 points) in defeat while the Penguins improve to 7-2-2 (16 points) with the win.

It’s still early in the season, but New York needs to figure out a way to keep this team from melting — and fast. They’ll have their chance for revenge this Thursday night in Pittsburgh.
