NEW YORK -- The Pittsburgh Penguins will be eager to get back on the ice Wednesday night after a three-day break. Cheap Roshe Run . The New York Islanders are hoping a spate of three games in four days can revive their flagging season.A pair of teams at opposite ends of the Eastern Conference will meet Wednesday night, when the Islanders host the defending Stanley Cup champion Penguins at Barclays Center. Each club earned a win in its previous game. New York edged the Calgary Flames 2-1 in overtime on Monday while Pittsburgh beat the New Jersey Devils 4-3 in the shootout on Saturday.The three-day break is the third such mini-vacation so far this season for the Penguins (13-6-1), who are four points behind the New York Rangers in the Metropolitan Division and tied for third overall in the conference, four points free of the second wild card.And three days off are more than enough as far as Penguins star center Sidney Crosby is concerned, even if he knows fresher legs can help later in the season.Its amazing -- after two days you feel it, you definitely feel it, Crosby said following the Penguins practice in Pittsburgh on Tuesday.

After facing the Penguins, New York travels to Washington to face the Capitals on Thursday night.Each game is crucial for us -- obviously havent started the season the way we wanted to, Islanders center John Tavares said Monday night. We know Wednesdays going to be a good test. If youre going to have success in the playoffs, youve got to beat a lot of the top teams.Any chance the Islanders have of crawling out of the hole theyve dug begins with generating more offense. New York has scored three goals or fewer in eight straight games and in 18 of 21 games overall. The Penguins are 8-0-0 when scoring more than three goals.Were going to have to find some offense and thats the big thing when you play Pittsburgh, Islanders head coach Jack Capuano said. They can make you look silly, theyve got a lot of offensive weapons, their power play is dynamic.The Islanders may be without defenseman Adam Pelech, who left after the second period Monday night due to an upper body injury. For the Penguins, right winger Patric Hornqvist is expected to return to the lineup after missing the last six games with a concussion.This is the third of four meetings this season between the Islanders and Penguins.
