It’s been a while but the Penguins are back on the ice. Jordan Staal took it to the Devils last time out, and Chris Kunitz continued his hot streak with a goal. The real news was that James Neal scored yet another goal!

Last year the Penguins were 4-2 against the Islanders, failing to pick up a point in just one game. Let’s be honest though, this is all anyone remembers:
The New York Islanders can be called a lot of things. Good is not one of them, neither is classy, clean, mature, or relevant. Fact is the Islanders are a shit organization and the only people who care about them are the seven fans that still pack that dump they call an arena.
The only Island I can think of when I think of the Islanders is Three Mile Island because they are mutants, they are the results of an obvious nuclear fall out.
Did I mention they are awful? They are currently where they will probably end the season, holding up the division while the big boy play meaningful hockey.
Maybe I was wrong, I doubt anyone could forget this glorious display:
Swept the leg!
