Game 6: Orpik's OT winner helps Penguins eliminate Islanders

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- Brooks Orpik scored 7:49 into overtime, and the Pittsburgh Penguins overcame three one-goal deficits in Game 6 to eliminate the New York Islanders with a 4-3 victory on Saturday night.

Orpik took a shot from the left point that might have clipped Islanders forward Brad Boyes on its way past goalie Evgeni Nabokov.

The Penguins advanced to face the Ottawa Senators in the second round of the playoffs despite being outshot 38-21 in the decisive win.

The Islanders were just 5:16 away from sending the series back to Pittsburgh for one more game when Paul Martin got the Penguins even for the third time.
