Penguins look to even playoff series with Islanders

The New York Islanders can put themselves in great position with a win Tuesday in Game 2 of their first-round Eastern Conference playoff series against the host Pittsburgh Penguins.

The Islanders won Sunday's series opener in Pittsburgh 4-3 in overtime, a huge step toward negating the Penguins' home-ice advantage.

It also was a statement game for forward Kyle Palmieri, who was acquired at the trade deadline but had just two goals in 17 games for the Islanders -- until he scored twice, including the overtime winner, on Sunday.
