Islanders seek to avenge lopsided loss to Penguins

UNIONDALE, N.Y. - A bitter playoff series between the New York Islanders and Pittsburgh Penguins in the spring of 2013 has lent an extra air of intensity to every subsequent game between the two teams.

Now insert into the equation the Islanders' return to Nassau Coliseum, the loud and site for three memorable games in that 2013 playoff clash? And New York coming off an emotional win over the Detroit Red Wings Saturday night and looking to redeem itself following a lopsided defeat to the Penguins in Pittsburgh Thursday? And with the game destined to decide which team resides in a playoff spot and which team does not by the end of the evening?

Add it all up and Islanders-Penguins should be more energized than most December games Monday night, when New York hosts Pittsburgh at Nassau Coliseum.
