Video: Beau Bennett scores first career playoff goal

May 1, 2013, 9:02 PM EDT

Wednesday’s playoff opener represents a slew of firsts for the New York Islanders, but the Pittsburgh Penguins garnered the most significant ones so far in Game 1 of their series.

Rookie Beau Bennett scored the first postseason goal of his career and the first of this matchup to open up the scoring 1-0:

That’s probably not that different from how he dreamed it up, really.

The Islanders are still waiting for their first goal since they lost Game 5 to the Buffalo Sabres 4-3. As of this writing, Chris Campoli remains the last Isles player to find the net in the postseason (which happened on April 20, 2007).

    NOTE TO THE REST OF THE LEAGUE Beware of the POP=UP 5 on 3 the Pens get more than the rest of the league combined ! I now it technically was not 5 0n 3 at the time but in reality it was ! The refs and NBC give the Pens enough chances on the power play to open the game up ! Oh yeah at games end it won’t look lopsided in the box score the refs will even up the min but we all know its too late once the big lead is given to the Pens its a disgrace to hockey !

      Who do the Flyers play in round 1?

      Be happy it’s not your Cryers. It’ll be 8-0 and your goons would be out.

      Go away troll!

      Here come the too late make-up calls just like I predicted !

      • upyoursnfu - May 1, 2013 at 9:25 PM

        Seriously….who do the Flyers play in the first round?

      • pens5829 - May 1, 2013 at 9:31 PM

        upyoursnfu: It’s a Cryer troll. Just leave him be. He’s got nothing else to do the next two months but cry about the Pens.

      • upyoursnfu - May 1, 2013 at 9:36 PM

        @pens5829 I know, I just like to rub it in a little while he is flooding his mom’s basement with tears

      • eigglesnosuperbowls - May 1, 2013 at 9:39 PM

        And the make up calls keep on coming but we all know the damage was done early ! Good try refs !

    eiggles: just go away!

    It’s hard to see how a series is going to go after one game but one thing you
    can take away is that Pittsburgh and more importantly Marc Andre Fleury know the
    Islanders aren’t the Flyers

    • pens5829 - May 1, 2013 at 9:18 PM

      Where are the Flyers tonight?

      • hockeyfan28 - May 1, 2013 at 9:25 PM

        All wearing Marc Andre Fleury jerseys

    • malkamania71 - May 1, 2013 at 9:24 PM

      season series says otherwise

    @upyoursnfu I’m pretty sure they’re playing the devils

      In golf?

    the eastern conference is weak. every game in the west has been close and in the east just blow outs. easy first round for the top seeds…

    • theageofquarrel - May 1, 2013 at 10:21 PM

      1992 the year the Penguins swept the Hawks!!!

  6. pens5829 - May 1, 2013 at 10:14 PM

    Nah. Not gonna say it….

    • mordock57 - May 1, 2013 at 11:50 PM

      My birthday is next week, during Game 4. I’ll be 37 years old, born in 1976. Which means I’ve NEVER seen the Flyers win a Cup. 😉

      • eigglesnosuperbowls - May 2, 2013 at 5:56 AM

        That a shame it was way better than the Pens cups ! Viva los 1975

      • drone501 - May 2, 2013 at 6:52 AM

        and you won t when your 77. lol

    indianhead1992 you might want to worry about the mighty Wild who u needed it to beat.

    • indianhead1992 - May 2, 2013 at 1:28 AM

      Thats my point, Wild is a harder team to face in a 7 game series than the Eastern teams 3-8.. I like PittsburghI hope they make it out of the east, just saying they have it easy. It wasnt an attack on on the pens, I think that conference is weak overall, but Bruins and Pens are the power houses by far. Those are the only yeams that could put up with the western conference.

    Your an idiot eiggles. Plain and simple… Go away. Check your facts before you start spewing your incoherent rants. Hate to be a grammer nut… But you continue to hold down the average iq on these boards. I think we have all become a little dumber after reading so many of your moronic posts.
