Squandering a three-goal lead against the Pittsburgh Penguins at home on Nov. 7 cost the New York Islanders a chance at achieving something the franchise hadn't done since its dynasty years.

But on Thursday night, the red-hot Islanders will get a second chance to make history against the Penguins in Brooklyn, when New York hosts Pittsburgh and looks to extend its point streak to a team-record 16 games.

The game Thursday will complete a home-and-home set that began in eventful fashion in Pittsburgh on Tuesday night, when the Islanders gained a measure of revenge on the Penguins by coming back from a pair of two-goal deficits to earn a 5-4 overtime victory.
