The Islanders lost their third straight game in the third period against the Penguins on Friday.
It was the team's third straight loss after having been tied or ahead after two periods. The Isles, who lost 4-2 after entering the period tied 2-2, are 1-13-1 when they score two or fewer games. "Obviously, we would've liked a better third period," Islanders wing Josh Bailey said. "I don't think we think about it any differently. You not always going to play a perfect game, but we've got to find a way to get two points."
