Great, unexpected win, no doubt.

I have to disagree (respectively) regarding the third period.

The Pens had 19 shots on goal in the third the Islanders 7.

In the first and second the shots on goal were almost dead even

IMHO the Islanders played the entire third like they were hanging on to a one goal lead with two minutes left.

They were content to back up and try to clear the puck even after the major penalty expired early in the third. Even the clearing attempts were weak and seemed to be done in a state of panic.

Nabby won that game.

If they do not change this mind set from "My God we might actually win I don't know what to do" to "Keep the pedal to the floor" this team will lose a lot of games they should have won.

It seems to be a coaching issue.
