Pittsburgh Penguins vs. New York Islanders Game 6: Live Score, Updates, Analysis

Franklin Steele@FranklinSteeleAnalyst IIMay 11, 2013

Game 6 between the New York Islanders and Pittsburgh Penguins is over, and Brooks Orpik is the hero. The Pens win this series 4-2 and are headed to a second-round date with the Ottawa Senators.

New York secured leads three different times in this game and failed to hold on to it each and every time. That left the door open for Orpik to score in overtime, despite the Islanders badly outplaying the Penguins Saturday night.

With five minutes remaining, it looked like the Islanders were going to force a Game 7 with a dominating performance, but Evgeni Malkin fed a pass to Paul Martin, who ripped a slop shot off of a New York stick and into the net, sending the game to overtime.

FINAL: Pittsburgh Penguins 4, New York Islanders 3
