Penguins win in shootout

October 04, 2009

UNIONDALE, N.Y. — Sidney Crosby netted the deciding tally in the shootout and gave the Pittsburgh Penguins a 4-3 victory against the New York Islanders on Saturday night.

Islanders rookie John Tavares got nearly everything he hoped for in his NHL debut, scoring a go-ahead goal and adding an assist.

He went second for New York in the shootout but fired wide. Jeff Tambellini rang a shot off the post on the Islanders' first attempt before Penguins defenseman Kris Letang beat Dwayne Roloson in the tiebreaker.

Roloson, in his Islanders debut, looked sharp in making 39 saves. Marc-Andre Fleury was just as good in stopping 25 shots.
