The New York Islanders face Pittsburgh Penguins twice this season

The New York Islanders will end their season with the Pittsburgh Penguins with two games in western Pennsylvania, the first of which will be tonight.

As explained below, injuries have exhausted the list of pens. The Islanders have a record of 2-2-2 against Pittsburgh this season; I would love to see them push it to 4-2-2 to end the season streak.

FIG picks go here.
