Chris Kunitz scores overtime winner for Penguins
Chris Kunitz scored the game-winner in overtime for Pittsburgh on Sunday afternoon to give the Penguins a 2-1 series lead.
The Pittsburgh Penguins were not particularly good on Sunday afternoon.
For a second straight game the New York Islanders were faster, smarter with the puck, and outplayed the Penguins at even strength as Pittsburgh let another two-goal lead slip away.
But the Penguins were still able to escape with a 5-4 overtime win to take a 2-1 series lead thanks to a strong performance from their power play.
The Penguins scored three goals on the man-advantage, including this one from Chris Kunitz in overtime:
That goal didn't come without a little controversy, however, as the Penguins were on the power play after a borderline holding call on Brian Strait after he hauled down Sidney Crosby going to the net.
The Penguins capitalized less than a minute later.
They were fortunate to come away with the win, not so much because of the overtime power play, but because of how poor they looked during the 60 minutes of regulation.
They have a 2-1 series lead, but it hasn't been a very strong performance the past two games.
