UNIONDALE, N.Y., Dec. 15 (UPI) -- Tyler Kennedy had a goal and two assists Saturday in the Pittsburgh Penguins' 3-2 victory over the New York Islanders.

Kennedy's sixth goal of the season -- on the power play at 14:16 of the third period -- broke a 2-2 deadlock.

Kennedy also assisted on first-period goals by Sidney Crosby and Ryan Whitney.

Goalie Dany Sabourin stopped 27 of 29 shots for the Penguins, who have won five of their last seven. They had lost two in a row by a combined 12-3 margin.

New York's goals were scored by Richard Park (power play) and Josef Vasicek in the second.

Rick DiPietro stopped 37 of 40 shots for the Islanders, who are the NHL's lowest-scoring team and haven't won two straight since Nov. 16-19, dropping 10 of 14 since that time.

On the power play, Pittsburgh went 1 for 6, and the Islanders were 1 for 2.
