Penguins Vs. Islanders Score Update: James Neal Power Play Goal Ties Game 2-2

James Neal has once again found the back of the net for the Penguins to knot the score against the Islanders at 2-2 early in the third period.

The Islanders controlled much of the first two periods, scoring first in the first period on a goal by Frans Nielsen, assisted by Kyle Okposo and Mark Streit. The Islanders then extended their lead to 2-0 just seconds into the third period after a scoreless second period on a goal by Matt Martin and assists from Steve Staios and Marty Reasoner.

The Penguins however came storming back as Chris Kunitz found the net a mere 30 seconds later on assists by Pascal Dupuis and Kris Letang. That was followed just minutes later by the James Neal power play goal assisted by Chris Kunitz and Evgeni Malkin.

With the goal, Neal leveled the game 2-2, and scored his ninth goal of the young season in the process. As the third period winds down, the two teams are still deadlocked, and it looks like this one may not be decided in regulation.

Stay tuned to SB Nation Pittsburgh as this one wraps up.
