Islanders Bits: Capitals post-game, Pens pre-game, mid-year report

Observers enjoy the Islanders 5-2 win over the Capitals and get ready for another in Pittsburgh as the second half of the season is upon us.

Bruce Bennett

The New York Islanders are right back at it Sunday night, but their opponent is in no better boat: While the Isles played Saturday afternoon at home, the Penguins were playing Saturday night in Toronto, where the Pens held 3-1 and 4-2 leads but needed the shootout to get past the Leafs 5*-4.

More to come for tonight's game later. The Isles are 11-11-3 for 25 points, a standings tie for ninth in the East, one point back of eighth. With 34 points, the Penguins are two points back of Montreal for the top spot in the East. After tonight the Isles don't play until Thursday in Tampa Bay, so the standings will be making ground on them in the interim.
