Isles get double dose of revenge on Pens

Think the Islanders will be feeling good when they take the HSBC Arena ice tomorrow? They're coming off back-to-back wins over Montreal and Pittsburgh, and they won on the scoresheet and the fight card last night against the Penguins.

The Pens are having a calm day of practice in Central Park after their wild night on Long Island. There were 341 penalty minutes in the Islanders' 9-3 win over Pittsburgh and the NHL is certain to respond with some fines and suspensions. Eric Goddard of the Pens, in fact, is looking at an automatic 10-gamer for coming off the bench to give aid to goaltender Brent Johnson.

TSN has a terrific video recap of all the festivities that you can see at this link. A throwback night to the 70s.

And you can always count on somebody helping you out via YouTube. If you want to see every last minute of the pugilistic pugnaciousness, click away below.
