Penguins 2 - Islanders 3 (SO): Extended Losing

Sidney scored but the Penguins lost to the Islanders 3-2 in an extended shootout.

Six, seven, eight shooters got the puck for the New York Islanders in the NHL's longest shootout so far, and still Jason Blake didn't get the call. When it comes to skating 1-on-1, he is the Islanders' last choice right now.

Blake, New York's ninth and final shooter of the extended shootout, nearly lost the puck when he finally got his chance but recovered to steer a shot past Jocelyn Thibault and give the Islanders a 3-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday night.

As Blake came down the slot, the puck fell off his stick momentarily, but he got it back and beat Thibault by faking a backhander only to slide the puck inside the near post.
Sidney finished with 1 goal on 5 shots and a -1 in 23:58 of ice time. It figures that Sid Vicious finished 0 for 1 on faceoffs...
