Tyler Donohue@@TDsTakeNational Recruiting AnalystMay 1, 2013

Pittsburgh provided an opening-round beatdown against the Islanders. The Penguins punished New York throughout the game, prevailing 5-0 on home ice.

The Atlantic Division foes were on a different level Wednesday night. Pittsburgh poured in three goals in the second period and Marc Andre Fleury tied a franchise record with his sixth postseason shutout. 

Pascal Dupuis scored a pair of goals for Pittsburgh, a team that has now won 24 of 28 games. The Islanders—appearing in the playoffs for the first time since 2007—have a lot of work to do in order to make this a respectable series.

New York goalie Evgeni Nabokov was chased from the game less than 22 minutes into the matchup after surrendering four goals on 15 Penguins shot attempts.

Final: Pittsburgh 5, New York 0
