The Pittsburgh Penguins brought a 2-1 lead into the middle of the third period Friday night, but a flurry of goals gave the New York Islanders an eventual 4-3 win.

Frans Nielsen tied things up 2-2 12:46 into the final frame, but Deryk Engelland regained Pittsburgh’s lead 16 seconds later. Pierre-Marc Bouchard made it 3-3 less than a minute after that Engelland tally and that Josh Bailey scored the game-winner with less than two minutes left.

Nielsen is on fire, by the way, with a blistering six points (two goals, four assists) in his last two games. His 14 points in 2013-14 ties him with Steven Stamkos.

The Penguins weren’t the only people stunned after this game, as New York Newsday’s Arthur Staple captures.

The Islanders broke a two-game losing streak while the Penguins find themselves in a two-game losing streak of their own.
