Video: Pens score two power-play goals in 19 seconds

May 5, 2013, 1:19 PM EDT

The New York Islanders took the momentum they gained from their come-from-behind win on Friday and dominated early in the first period of Sunday’s contest.

The Islanders found the back of the net twice in the first 5:41 minutes of play, but that’s not enough to bury a team as talented as the Penguins.

Islanders defensemen Mark Streit and Travis Hamonic were charged with minor penalties just 34 seconds apart, giving the Penguins a 5-3 opportunity. Pittsburgh, which entered this game with a 37.5 power-play percentage in the first round, capitalized on New York’s mistakes by tying the game with goals just 19 seconds apart.

You can watch Jarome Iginla and Chris Kunitz‘s work below:

Sidney Crosby dished the puck to Pascal Dupuis for the Penguins third goal of the period. The Islanders could still bounce back, but the Penguins certainly aren’t folding just because they suffered one bad loss.

    Thanks to the usual pop-up 5 on 3 that they are always rewarded !

    • handsofsweed - May 5, 2013 at 2:00 PM

      Yeah, When you get your a$$ beaten raw, panic and arm-tackle someone passing you up, the refs call a penalty. So, the moral of the story is: move your GD feet better and don’t NFL-tackle someone when on the PK and you won’t have to get ripped apart by Pittsburgh.

      • eigglesnosuperbowls - May 5, 2013 at 2:07 PM

        Ripped apart by pittsburgh are you kidding me ! The superstar roster needs 5 on 3’s to help them win a series against a team with no playoff experience ! Let me shine a little light on your rose colored glasses about this series for ya ! The number 1 team in the east with the superstar roster and the WORLDS GREATEST PLAYER is playing even or less at 5 on 5 against the 8th team in the east !

      • eigglesnosuperbowls - May 5, 2013 at 2:13 PM

        Your right can be real proud of your team dominating with a two man advantage all the time something to really hang your hat on !

      • crosberries - May 5, 2013 at 3:22 PM

        Haha eiggles says he has witnessed a cup putting him at 40+ yrs old. What a loser to be constantly on here every five minutes trying to get a rile out of people online.

      • handsofsweed - May 5, 2013 at 3:23 PM

        Actually, I think the Isles are a very talented bunch who deserve this resurgence. Their fans have been pretty cool, too. How about you go ahead and give them credit? It’s not like I’ve ever said this series was gonna be a cakewalk, even after game one.

    • walleye9000 - May 5, 2013 at 3:20 PM

      Listen listen yon can here eiggles cryin sob…sob. Man it must suck to be a Cryers fan

  2. Stiller43 - May 5, 2013 at 1:35 PM

    So which one of those penalties called werent penalties?

    • 19to77 - May 5, 2013 at 4:07 PM

      Huh. Go figure. He didn’t want to respond to this one. I wonder why.

  3. watermelon1 - May 5, 2013 at 1:40 PM

    Of course the penguins won’t fold. The NHL and referees won’t let them.

    • valoisjoeybfeld69 - May 5, 2013 at 1:45 PM

      Oh! Yeah! And the NHL and refs helped Shero get Iginla, Morrow, and Murray, which just scored. Did you see the NHL and ref assist on that goal? Awesome passes. Lol.

    • therealdeal18 - May 5, 2013 at 1:50 PM

      ill reiterate stiller43. So which one of those penalties called weren’t penalties?

      • eigglesnosuperbowls - May 5, 2013 at 2:09 PM

        Your right ,,,,,,,,,, when it comes to the team from pitts there all penalties ! I wanna see the next time the pens are down a man and latang slashes the crap out of a FLYLANDER behind the net if its called ! Keep this in mind because it will happen sure as sh#t !

  4. sjsharks66 - May 5, 2013 at 2:06 PM

    What a goal by murray. He was never able to do that over here. Glad to see him having fun and actually scoring!

  5. haterzinc - May 5, 2013 at 2:21 PM

    Power plays are part of game. When The pens score eiggles cries. When the PK kills it. Eiggles celebrate. What a DB!!!! Flyers could not score 5-5 all year round. Overrated

    • eigglesnosuperbowls - May 5, 2013 at 2:24 PM

      The FLYLANDERS will just have to score more shorthanded no biggie !

    • eigglesnosuperbowls - May 5, 2013 at 2:28 PM

      Dude your team is strugglin with an 8th seed no playoff experience team and needs power play time to do it ! Now thats what I call overrated !

  6. penzfan329 - May 5, 2013 at 2:25 PM

    Eiggles get lost. Your just jealous loser

  7. valoisjoeybfeld69 - May 5, 2013 at 2:27 PM

    Time to ban eigglesnosuperbowls

  8. maalea - May 5, 2013 at 2:30 PM

    4 to 4 with 9 minutes left.

    The collective Pens butt hole just tightened.

    • valoisjoeybfeld69 - May 5, 2013 at 2:58 PM

      They better get their stuff together. Otherwise they’ll be teeing off before the Islanders. What to say about Bylsma if they are having problems beating the Islanders. If you can’t win with a loaded team, then the coach is part of the problem.

  9. mattryannolan - May 5, 2013 at 2:40 PM

    When can people start realizing that Flurry is the most overrated goalie in the NHL. Guy just can’t EVER make a stop it feels like.

    • valoisjoeybfeld69 - May 5, 2013 at 2:56 PM

      I don’t know about that. Pens are not playing very well. Is Fleury to blame for every goal?

      • therealdeal18 - May 5, 2013 at 3:00 PM

        I dont see anyone in this blog saying MAF is the best goalie in the NHL so I dont know where this comment came from. But he did do enough to earn 23 wins this season, tied for second most in the nhl… so he made some saves, but you’ll probably attribute all of that to the Pens offense. And youre giving very little credit to an Islanders team thats out playing the Pens yet again by blaming it all on Fleury.

  10. steelers88 - May 5, 2013 at 2:58 PM

    The Pens are playing like crap AGAIN in the playoffs! This is getting ridiculous! Their turning the puck over playing terrible defense and Flurey sucks AGAIN! The Penguins are getting outworked and outplayed. They just think that they show up they are going to win well that’s not how it works. Man it is so embarrassing to be a Pens fan right now. I’m getting really sick of all the collapses in the playoffs.

    • therealdeal18 - May 5, 2013 at 3:01 PM

      You’re not really a pens fan… so don’t be too embarrassed.

    • valoisjoeybfeld69 - May 5, 2013 at 3:01 PM

      I completely agree except for Fleury sucking.

  11. girouxed - May 5, 2013 at 3:08 PM

    What are they supposed to do? Not score goals? They’re stacked…

  12. girouxed - May 5, 2013 at 3:10 PM

    People say bryzgalov is inconsistent, Fluery is a pretty close runner up on the inconsistency wagon

  13. therealdeal18 - May 5, 2013 at 3:16 PM

    Qeue Eiggles complaining about power plays… here we gooooo

    • eigglesnosuperbowls - May 5, 2013 at 3:21 PM

      Naaaaaaaaaaaaaa at least it was only a 5 on 4 !

  14. therealdeal18 - May 5, 2013 at 3:19 PM

    Oh Mike Milbury and JR don’t like the call? Let me put on my suprised face. Haters gonna Hate.

  15. jr507 - May 5, 2013 at 3:19 PM

    5-on-3 was legit. the refs saved the phantom penalty for the leagues star vag’s dive in OT. Oh no, Sindy fell! Call a penalty so Pitt can sneak out with an OT win. Disgraceful.

    • therealdeal18 - May 5, 2013 at 3:23 PM

      a win is a win is a win is a win :)

    • eigglesnosuperbowls - May 5, 2013 at 3:26 PM

      jr507 its a joke they have not caught on to his act,, he bodies into you down low like in basketball then gets all out of control and the refs fall for it every time ! At one time you had to earn an overtime win in the NHL not since the NHL owned this team from pittsburgh has it been so easy to get a call !

  16. theageofquarrel - May 5, 2013 at 3:20 PM

    Love those ever classy Fishermen fans throwing garbage on the ice at the end of the game. SMH.

  17. maalea - May 5, 2013 at 4:13 PM

    From an outsiders point of view, the Pens may be a better “team” when Crosby isn’t playing. They start playing run and gun, thinking they will out score everyone.

    This team needs to play within the system.

    If they leave MAF hanging out to dry too often, he’ll loose confidence and it will be an early exit.
