Islanders top Pens for 3-0 series lead

Islanders top Pens for 3-0 series lead

Jordan Eberle scored his third goal in as many games Sunday as the New York Islanders took a commanding lead in their first-round playoff series with a 4-1 win over the host Pittsburgh Penguins. Game 4 is set for Tuesday night in the Steel City. Robin Lehner made 25 saves for the Islanders. Just 28 seconds after Garrett Wilson put Pittsburgh up 1-0, Eberle received a pass from Ryan Pulock on the left wing and immediately shot a sharp-angle wrister above Penguins goaltender Matt Murray's right shoulder.

Game 1 was a back-and-forth battle between the Metropolitan Division rivals, with the third period seeing two goals by an Islanders and Penguins defenseman.

"We kind of did our best to play simple hockey and really just grind it out a little bit", said NY forward Anders Lee, whose empty-net goal with 1:28 to go pushed the Islanders to the cusp of an unlikely sweep. The Penguins have only been swept in a series three times in their history, most recently by the Bruins in the 2013 Eastern Conference final.

Patriots Sign Former Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas
While Thomas has been a top receiver for much of his career, there are some serious questions about his health going forward. Translation: After Edelman, the Patriots really don't have much at the wide receiver position for next season.

The Penguins insisted it wasn't time to panic, with coach Mike Sullivan downplaying the idea his team needed to play with desperation.

The Islanders had held serve at the Coliseum over the past week, winning a dramatic 4-3 overtime contest in Game 1 on Wednesday and a decisive 3-1 victory in Game 2 on Friday. "They're not afraid of a whole lot". Just as it did back home on Long Island, New York didn't back down against the star-studded Penguins. Erik Gudbranson gave the Penguins a 1-0 advantage with 9:24 remaining in the second period with an assist given to Evgeni Malkin.
