Bleacher Report: Sidney Crosby, Penguins Face 3-0 Series Deficit After 4-1 Loss to Islanders
The New York Islanders took a 3-0 series lead over the Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round of the 2019 Stanley Cup playoffs. The Islanders went on the road and earned a 4-1 victory Sunday at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh.
New York jumped on Pittsburgh early, with Brock Nelson and Jordan Eberle giving the Islanders a 2-1 first-period lead. Robin Lehner made 25 saves as those goals were enough to see the Islanders through to the victory.
The Penguins will hope to prolong the series Tuesday in Game 4. The Los Angeles Kings in 2014 are the last team to come back from a 3-0 playoff deficit, and only four teams in NHL history have achieved the feat.
