WHAT TO WATCH FOR:

Defenseman Kris Letang (upper-body) will not play tonight against the Islanders, but is getting closer … Marc-Andre Fleury will play in his eighth-straight game to open the season … Fleury has allowed two or fewer goals in four of his five home games … The Pens are 4-0-1 at home this season, and have scored a power-play goal in each contest … The Islanders are playing the Pens on the backend of back-to-back contests, having dropped a 3-2 contest last night to Montreal at home … New York did not hold a morning skate … Jaroslav Halak will get the start in goal.
