Islanders Need to Extend Their Positive Playoff Record Over the Penguins

For the second time in three years, the New York Islanders will face the Pittsburgh Penguins in the opening round of the playoffs. The Islanders swept the series back in 2019 and are 4-1 lifetime in the postseason against Pittsburgh. The Penguins, though, come in as the top seed in the East Division and earned wins in six of the eight games against the Islanders this season.
