The Islanders tied a franchise record on Tuesday by topping the Penguins 5-4 in overtime, extending their point streak to 15 games, matching the mark set by the team in 1982.
The Islanders fell into an early hole, as Bryan Rust lit the lamp about midway through the first quarter. Five minutes later, Brandon Tanev notched his fourth goal of the season, putting the penguins up 2-0 at the end of the first period.
In the second, though, the Islanders fought back. Early in the period, Anthony Beauvillier scored his seventh goal of the season to get the Islanders on the board, and less than three minutes later, Brock Nelson's fifth goal of the season tied the game at 2-2.
