Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby is back on the ice for Game 2 of his team's first-round playoff series against the Atlantic Division rival New York Islanders. The 2009 Stanley Cup champion, who missed more than a month after suffering a broken jaw, is back in action to bolster his squad as it seeks a 2-0 series advantage.

The Islanders, in the postseason for the first time since 2007, were embarrassed in Wednesday's opener. Top-seeded Pittsburgh pummeled New York 5-0, scoring all five goals before the third period. The game was punctuated by Penguins history, as goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury tied a franchise record with his sixth playoff shutout.

Stay tuned tonight to follow all the action as Crosby and company look to improve to take command of the matchup. We'll have live updates, analysis and reaction throughout Game 2 of this Eastern Conference showdown.

Final: Islanders 4, Penguins 3
