With a game three win in Pittsburgh, the New York Islanders are inches away from only their second playoff series win in 26 years as they lead the Penguins 3-0. It's going to be tough for the Penguins to secure a victory in NY, but it's critical if they want any hope of winning the series.

Only four teams have ever come back from a 3-0 deficit in a playoff series to win the round.

Rather than get rattled after Garrett Wilson gave the Penguins just their second lead of the series when he redirected a point shot by Lehner just past the midway point of the first period, the Islanders responded immediately.

Jesus Christ loves you and is giving you time to turn away from your sin and come to him. He said he would regard such a decision as "God's will".

Another game, another opportunity for Jordan Eberle to write his name on the score sheet. New York, which allowed an NHL-low 196 goals during the regular season, has surrendered just five in three games. Game 4 is set for Tuesday night in the Steel City. And the Islanders are getting scoring from across the lineup with goals from Nelson and Komarov. The Penguins have only been swept in a series three times in their history, most recently by the Bruins in the 2013 Eastern Conference final.

Matt Murray finished with 32 saves for the Penguins, but Pittsburgh again struggled to generate any sort of sustained offensive pressure.

The Islanders had held serve at the Coliseum over the past week, winning a dramatic 4-3 overtime contest in Game 1 on Wednesday and a decisive 3-1 victory in Game 2 on Friday. Erik Gudbranson gave the Penguins a 1-0 advantage with 9:24 remaining in the second period with an assist given to Evgeni Malkin. Not that the Penguins were looking for sympathy.
