The Pittsburgh Penguins were able to secure the lead once again in their 2013 NHL Playoff series with a 5-4 overtime win against the New York Islanders.
In the extra session, the Islanders’ Brian Strait got called for holding at the 8:11 mark. During that power play, Chris Kunitz would get his second power play goal of the day, a shot in the slot that went behind Evgeni Nabokov for the win. Also scoring for the Pens were Jarome Iginla, Pascal Dupuis and Douglas Murray. Sidney Crosby had 3 assists.
Matt Moulson, Casey Cizikas, Kyle Okposo and John Tavares scored for the Islanders, while Nabokov stopped 20 of 25 shots.
