Penguins Game Day 11 - @ New York Islanders

New York Islanders

7:00 p.m., Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, Long Island, New York

The last time they met:

April 8, 2011 - Pittsburgh 4, New York 3


How could anyone, especially from Pittsburgh and New York (Islanders), forget this from last season:



Some brief stuff as I don't have a lot of time to do a preview:

The Penguins are 19-4-2 over their last 25 games against the Islanders. Marc-Andre Fleury has been pretty money during that stretch of games going 8-0-2 with a 1.70 GAA.

Malkin should be in tonight. Michalek will be out the next 4-6 weeks with a busted up finger. Bleh.
