NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-New York Islanders at Pittsburgh Penguins Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Here are your Pens Points for this Monday morning...

The Penguins and Islanders continued their playoff series yesterday afternoon, as the teams moved to PPG Paints Arena for two games. Hoping that a change of scenery would be enough to kickstart the Penguins after going down 2-0 in the series... well... it wasn’t. The Pens were flat once again, falling to the Islanders by a score of 4-1 and now in a 3-0 series hole. [Recap]

Now down 3-0 after being favored to start the series, the Penguins find themselves in a situation they haven’t fared well in during the Sidney CrosbyEvgeni Malkin era. [Trib Live]

One of the biggest reasons the Penguins are in this position? The offense has dried up and the stars are silent. [Post-Gazette]
