Post-Game +/-: Penguins 6, Islanders 3

The Islanders opened a 2-0 lead -- David Ullstrom's second NHL goal, Milan Jurcina's second of the season -- but gave it up by the end of the first. Kyle Okposo bought them one more lead (3-2) in the second, but then Travis Hamonic was tossed for an "elbow" and the Penguins scored the next four goals (mostly by a buncha guys you don't like, don't like at all), and the team folded.

Al Montoya's roughest night as an Islander? Possibly. Opportunity missed? Probably. In front of 15,638 at the Coliseum, the Islanders scored their share, but gave up more than their share to a squad missing Sidney Crosby, Jordan Staal, some big defensemen -- and even while keeping remaining known center Evgeni Malkin mostly at bay.

Fuller, more thoughtful recap to come later from Keith (that was the plan unless this game went over 200 PIM -- then we'd call in Pens fan favorite Mark D). This is just our post-game plus/minus thread for your instant analysis with short-form praise and critiques for the night that was -- comments for those who watched, and impressions for the lurkers who didn't.
