Bailey's late goal caps furious rally as Islanders edge Penguins 4-3.

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Josh Bailey's goal with 1:40 left capped the Islanders' furious third-period rally, and New York edged the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3 on Friday night.

Bailey took a feed from Frans Nielsen in front of the net and beat goalie Jeff Zatkoff for his fourth goal of the season. The Islanders scored three times in the final 7:14 and erased deficits of 2-1 and 3-2.

Nielsen, Matt Moulson and Pierre-Marc Bouchard also scored for New York, and defenceman Radek Martinek had two assists in his season debut. Evgeni Nabokov stopped 39 shots.

Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby scored his eighth goal of the season and now has an NHL-high 18 points. Jussi Jokinen and Deryk Engelland also beat Nabokov but couldn't stop the Penguins from losing their second straight.

Zatkoff, playing in his second NHL game, made 21 saves.
