PITTSBURGH (AP) — Following an emotional pregame ceremony for their mourning city Vegas Golden Knights T-Shirts Womens , Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins channeled their emotions into a flurry of a first period.The Islanders spoiled their efforts for an uplifting finish, though, with Jordan Eberle scoring twice in the second period of New York’s 6-3 victory Tuesday night.The Penguins held a ceremony to honor the victims of Saturday’s synagogue shooting in the Pittsburgh neighborhood of Squirrel Hill. It included an 11-second moment of silence in memory of the 11 people slain, whose names appeared on the scoreboard.Then the Pens came out flying, peppering goalie Robin Lehner with scoring chances, but New York escaped the first period in 2-2 tie.“We wanted to go out there and play for them,” said Crosby, who scored late in the period. “You try to recognize that and play as hard as you can to show your appreciation. Words are one thing, but you try to go out there and follow it up the same.”Islanders coach Barry Trotz said it ranked among New York’s “worst periods of the season” and the team struggled with “heavy boots,” but he understood the impact of the circumstances.“I watched the news like everybody else, and it was absolutely cowardly what happened with the whole tragedy,” Trotz said. “But sometimes sports teams can help a city rally Vegas Golden Knights Hoodies Womens , and full marks to the Penguins because they came out hard. We got some great goaltending in the first period and that was the reason why we won the game.”Eberle scored his second and third goals for the Islanders, who swept a three-game road trip.

Thomas Greiss stopped 12 shots for the Islanders, who are playing eight of their first 11 games on the road for the first time in team history.“They’re becoming road warriors,” Trotz said. “We looked at the schedule to start the season and thought it could be a tough start, but the guys bought in, they’ve been battling and I think being on the road, especially with new personnel Vegas Golden Knights Hats Womens , has probably been a blessing in disguise.”Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Dominik Simon scored for Pittsburgh, which ended its four-game winning streak. The Penguins outscored the opposition 23-6 during a perfect four-game Canadian road trip.Crosby has six goals and nine points in his last four games after going his first six games without a goal. Malkin has an eight-game point streak.Matt Murray stopped 5 of 9 shots before he was pulled following Eberle’s power-play goal. Casey DeSmith made 14 saves in relief.“We had a lot of different emotions going through our minds to start, but the bottom line is that we wanted to find a way to get a win for a lot of reasons,” Crosby said. “Unfortunately, it didn’t happen.”Ladd and Nelson staked the Islanders to an early lead in the first, but Simon and Crosby responded to tie it.The Islanders broke it open with three second-period goals in a span of 4:17.Martin finished a one-timer from Casey Cizikas, and Eberle scored the next two for a 5-2 lead.“I liked our response in the second,” Eberle said. “We’re just continuing to win and play well. I think that’s the key.”STRONGER THAN HATEPenguins players wore a special “Stronger than Hate” patch, which incorporated the team logo and the Star of David, and the Islanders wore a similar decal on their helmets.A black and white silhouette of the city with the words “Stronger than Hate” flashed on the scoreboard during the pregame ceremony, while a video tribute played prior to faceoff. A ceremonial puck drop featured Pittsburgh police Chief Scott Schubert along with Anthony Burke and Mike Smigda Custom Vegas Golden Knights Jerseys , officers wounded in the attack.The Penguins held a blood drive Monday, and the team also donated to the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh in addition to a fund established by the City of Pittsburgh Department of Safety to benefit police officers wounded in the attack.NOTES: Penguins’ D Kris Letang missed the game with a lower-body injury.

Penguins F Derick Brassard (lower body) and Islanders F Cal Clutterbuck (upper body) both missed their second straight game because of injury. … Mathew Barzal has 12 points in 11 games and Josh Bailey has a six-game point streak for the Islanders.UP NEXTThe Penguins and Islanders meet again in New York on Thursday. Two teams hurtling in opposite directions will meet up Tuesday night when the Los Angeles Kings host the Winnipeg Jets at Staples Center.The Jets (22-9-2) have won a season-high five straight games, taking the past three in overtime, and they have won nine of 10 overall. Winnipeg knocked off the Tampa Bay Lightning 5-4 in overtime Sunday to move atop the Central Division.The Kings (11-20-3) have lost four in a row and six of seven. They own the fewest points in the NHL (25) and have yet to earn a point in three consecutive games this season.Article continues below ...Kings defenseman Jake Muzzin said frustration continues to build in the dressing room, but it’s important the players release their tension in positive ways.“We have to stick together as a team, that’s first and foremost, and everyone grab a shovel and start digging,” he told reporters after a 4-3 overtime road loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday. “If we start pointing fingers, the team crumbles. I believe in this team. Obviously, we have a lot of guys hurt , but we can’t be making excuses, we have to come together as a team and get out of this together.”Los Angeles is the lowest-scoring team in the NHL at 2.18 goals a game, a good distance from the Arizona Coyotes, the second-lowest scoring team (2.50).Winnipeg, meanwhile, has combined for 27 goals in its five-game winning streak to move to fourth in the NHL at 3.64 goals a game.Patrik Laine had a four-game point streak end in the win over Tampa Bay on Sunday, but Mark Scheifele and Dustin Byfuglien each extended his point streaks to five games, and Mathieu Perreault scored a goal for the fourth consecutive game.“Right now, I’m just riding the wave,” Perreault told the Winnipeg Sun before Sunday’s win. “It’s been that way for my entire career, really. I’ve been a streaky player, not that my game gets any different Anaheim Ducks T-Shirts Authentic , but sometimes the bounces go your way and, right now, that’s what has happened. Obviously, it gives you more confidence when pucks are going in. … You feel like the net’s a little bigger.”Scheifele’s point streak consists of five goals and nine assists, which moved him to fifth in the NHL with 46 points. He scored a goal against the Kings for the first time in his career in a 2-1 win in Winnipeg on Oct. 9.Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick is expected to start against the Jets. Quick has struggled in his career against Winnipeg, owning a 4-5-2 record, 3.02 goals-against average and .888 save percentage. The Jets are the only NHL team averaging more than three goals a game against Quick.Quick, who was injured and did not play in the loss to the Jets earlier this season, said he views each matchup with a clean slate.“It doesn’t matter if we won the last 10 or lost the last 10,” he said. “It’s a one-day-at-a-time job.”
