The Pittsburgh Penguins twice came from behind to triumph 4-2 at the New York Islanders and extend their winning streak to 11 games.

Tomas Vokoun was the hero for Pittsburgh, making 33 saves in total and keeping them in the game when the Islanders were dominant in the first period.

The hosts outshot the visitors 14-3 in that frame but were only able to score one goal, Mark Streit finding the net.

Joe Vitale replied for Pittsburgh and, although Josh Bailey put the Islanders back in front, Chris Kunitz levelled to make it 2-2 at the end of the second period.

And Brandon Sutter then made it 3-2 to the Penguins early in the third, taking a pass from Matt Cooke in front off a 2-on-1 rush and shooting past goalie Evgeni Nabokov.

Pascal Dupuis added an empty-net goal with less than a second remaining, with an assist from Vokoun, to put a little gloss on the scoreline.

Vokoun said: "They came out hard at us, we kind of bent but didn't break.

"We said after the first period that we've got to match their energy and their effort - and we did."
