Nelson's OT goal lifts streaking Islanders over Penguins 5-4

PITTSBURGH (AP) New York Islanders coach Barry Trotz insists his team isn't keeping track of its torrid start, even as the weeks pass and the victories pile up.

Probably time to start.

Brock Nelson's second goal of the game 2:55 into overtime capped another frantic comeback to lift the Islanders to a 5-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night to extend their points streak to 15 games, tied for the longest in franchise history.
