Islanders prove they're for real in sweep of Penguins

PITTSBURGH (AP) The expectations were modest at first. The New York Islanders simply wanted to be better than the team that allowed the most goals in the NHL in 2017-18. Tougher to play against. Smarter on both ends of the ice.

Momentum built slowly. A midseason surge under new head coach Barry Trotz gave them confidence. The goaltending of Robin Lehner and Thomas Greiss, too. Still, even a surprising second-place finish in the Metropolitan Division and the franchise's best regular season in 35 years couldn't stop the Islanders from being underdogs heading into their first-round series against Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins.

So much for that.
