The New York Islanders took advantage of a gift when they needed it most.
They defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins in double overtime on Monday night, 51 seconds into the frame after Penguins goaltender Tristan Jarry made an errant clearing attempt right up the middle of the slot that was intercepted by forward Josh Bailey, who made no mistake:
