Penguins hand Islanders 1st loss of season, 3-1

PITTSBURGH (AP) The much-maligned Pittsburgh Penguins' penalty killers provided the lift needed to back up an already-sizzling power play.

The Penguins killed a lengthy 5-on-3 just minutes before Evgeni Malkin and Patric Hornqvist scored power-play goals 55 seconds apart in the second period, helping Pittsburgh hand the New York Islanders their first loss of the season, 3-1 on Saturday night.

"They took some heat the last three games, but certainly tonight they came through big time," Penguins coach Mike Johnston said of the penalty killers. "That was the turning point in the game, that 5-on-3 kill."
