Islanders Need To Play Keep-Away With The Penguins

from Kevin Schultz of IslandersPointBlank,

Throughout the season, the Penguins have been an excellent team to the tune of tops in the Eastern Conference and the most goals scored in the NHL this season. There’s no doubt that they’re a tough opponent for the Islanders to face in this week’s first round.

However, if there’s one chink in the Pens’ armor, it could be their poor possession numbers over the last month. Since Sidney Crosby has been out with injury — sustained March 30 against the Islanders — the Penguins haven’t controlled possession like they normally do. And not only that, but their deadline acquisitions haven’t helped the cause.
