Penguins rally for 11th straight win

Posted: Updated:

UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) - Tomas Vokoun was sharp in making 33 saves, and Brandon Sutter snapped a tie early in the third period for the Pittsburgh Penguins, who rallied for a 4-2 victory over the New York Islanders that stretched their winning streak to 11 games on Friday night.

Sutter took a pass from Matt Cooke in front off a 2-on-1 rush and scored past goalie Evgeni Nabokov 1:46 into the third period. Joe Vitale and Chris Kunitz had second-period goals for Pittsburgh, which erased a pair of 1-goal deficits after a sluggish first period.

Pascal Dupuis added an empty-net goal with less than a second remaining, with an assist from Vokoun, to make it 4-2.

Mark Streit put the Islanders ahead in the first, and Josh Bailey answered Vitale's goal to make it 2-1 in the second, but New York lost its third straight at home of a 4-game homestand.
