UNDATED (AP) - The Penguins have taken a 2-1 lead over the Islanders in their best of seven first round Stanley Cup playoff series. In overtime the Pens beat the New Yorkers 5-4 in Uniondale, N.Y.

Chris Kunitz found the net for the game winning goal, his second power-play goal of the game. It came 8:34 into overtime, off a pass from Sidney Crosby.

It was an up and down game as the Pens trailed 2-0 just 5:41 in but rallied to lead 3-2 before the first period was over. The comeback started with power-play goals just 19 seconds apart by Jarome Iginla and Kunitz. The Penguins seemed in control in the third, but New York erased a 4-2 deficit on goals by Kyle Okposo and John Tavares. The clubs, who split the first two games in Pittsburgh, will next face-off Tuesday in Uniondale.
