Islanders top Penguins again to take surprising 3-0 series lead

Islanders top Penguins again to take surprising 3-0 series lead

It's going to be tough for the Penguins to secure a victory in NY, but it's critical if they want any hope of winning the series.

The Penguins, who won the Stanley Cup in 2016 and 2017, continued to be thwarted by the Islanders' stifling pressure and the play of goaltender Robin Lehner, who made 25 saves Sunday.

When the Penguins thought they had an advantage - following Garrett Wilson's goal 12:54 into the first period for a 1-0 lead - the Islanders answered right back. It was Eberle's third goal and sixth point in the first three games of the postseason. But the Penguins could not find the back of the net again on any of their 33 shots as NY scored three unanswered goals the rest of the way.

The Islanders hold an 11-5 goals edge in the series. But the Islanders needed only 28 seconds to answer back, a sharp-angle shot from the red-hot Jordan Eberle that hit the out-of-position Matt Murray and in went in to tie it, 1-1.

Pittsburgh needs a win in Game 4 on Tuesday to avoid being swept for the first time since the 2013 Eastern Conference finals against Boston.

Rain and thunderstorms will not affect the Pittsburgh Penguins playoff game inside PPG Paints Arena, but for fans outside it could cause some issues. He still opted to tinker with his lines in search of a spark, elevating Dominik Simon to the top line alongside Sidney Crosby and Jake Guentzel and putting Jared McCann - who sat out Game 2 with a lower-body injury - on the second line with Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel.

The Penguins were penalized eight times in the 3-1 loss, giving the Islanders six power play opportunities.
