Two Tom Kuhnhackl goals were disallowed and Josh Bailey, who eventually scored the game-winner, hit the post with seven seconds left in regulation after the Penguins tied it at three just moments earlier. Bailey just swooped in and knocked it into the net to send the New York Islanders home with a win.

"It's their home ice and we knew they were going to come out strong", forward Jake Guentzel said of the Islanders.

Bailey scored at 4:39 of the extra period and the Islanders beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3 on Wednesday night in the opener of their Eastern Conference first-round playoff series. 82 games ago - opening night in a 2-1 win over the Hurricanes.

Coach Mike Sullivan's decision to split the pair up, playing Malkin with Jared McCann and Patric Hornqvist and Kessel with Dominik Simon and Nick Bjugstad, paid dividends for one night.

The Islanders led three times in regulation with the Penguins managing to tie it each time.

"It worked out well for me, anyway, because I was a little ways back and exhausted", Bailey said about the play. "I liked our composure on the bench".

Pendant ce temps-là, Jean-Michel Aulas va se pencher officiellement sur la recherche d'un entraîneur. Pire: le capitaine de l'OL, le " Messi de Genesio " n'a joué que 6 petites minutes à la Beaujoire.

But getting Game 1 was critical to the Isles' pursuit of just their second playoff series win since 1993, and their potential return to our fair borough for the second round. I was just trying to whack it and hope it went in. "(We) didn't flinch at all".

Bailey had a chance at the victor for the Islanders in the closing seconds of the third, but his shot hit the right post. Justin Schultz's shot with a 1:29 left in the game tied the game at three to force overtime. He was glad it didn't end up being a costly miss. "Yeah, a little bit of redemption. I think that's just got easier with time". They got loud again in the minutes before the teams emerged from their dressing rooms for the start of the game. NY is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall and 5-2 in their last 7 home games while the under is 20-7 in their last 27 games against the Eastern Conference.

Just more than a minute after Kuhnhackl's opening-minute goal was overturned, Eberle did give the Islanders the lead as he stopped a deflection of Pelech's shot, turned and beat Murray through the five-hole from the right side for his first career postseason goal at 1:40. With Murray stuck leaning to his left to try and stop a shot by Eberle, Nelson went to one knee and poked a shot past the goalie with 4:14 remaining.

New York, which will play all its home games in the opening round at "The Old Barn", hasn't skated on the Barclays Center ice since February 16. Game 1 on Wednesday went the way of the Islanders, who finished with three more points than Pittsburgh during the regular season to snag home-ice advantage.

Although the Penguins did ultimately struggle to record many shots from within a few feet of the net (16 to the Islanders' 19), the Penguins were attempting shots at a rate we've rarely seen from them this season.

They have been four overtime goals in the 2019 playoffs.
