After a 4-3 shootout win over Pittsburgh on Friday night, the Islanders now hold the second wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference
Riding goals from John Tavares and Anthony Beauvillier in the shootout, the Islanders racked up their 18th win since Doug Weight took over as interim coach 31 games ago.
The Pens were not blanked in the extra session. Sidney Crosby notched a goal before Jaroslav Halak denied Phil Kessel and Nick Bonino. It was Halak's first starting opportunity in 2017.
Anders Lee contributed to the score for New York. Brock Nelson and Casey Cizikas also got in on the action. They have scored 28, 17 and 8 goals respectively this campaign.
The Isles will host the Bruins on Saturday.
