The Penguins battled against the other New York team last night, the New York Islanders. With 5 minutes left in regulation and a 3-1 lead, everything was comfy and cozy for Pittsburgh, but both teams needed OT and one Matt Hunwick goal later, Pittsburgh had escaped with a 4-3 win. [Recap]

Before the game, it was announced that Justin Schultz would miss a couple of weeks, likely due to the injury he suffered on Tuesday. Frank Corrado was subsequently recalled. [Pensburgh]
