The New York Islanders are scheduled to begin their drive for a fifth cup against the Pittsburgh Penguins, here’s a look at every series between the two teams. Ever.

Five. That’s the number of times the New York Islanders and Pittsburgh Penguins have faced each other in the post-season over their 49 years of shared existence.

And it’s typically gone well for the Islanders even when they weren’t exactly the favorite in the series. In 29 games against the Pens in the playoffs, the Isles hold a 17-12 record. More importantly, the Isles are 4-1 in series wins over the Penguins.

I know looking at the Islanders history in the playoff against the Penguins won’t provide us with an idea of what could happen this time around. Even the fact that the Islanders swept the Penguins 4-0 two years ago means nothing going into this series.

But this is a fun jog down memory lane as we wait for the opening round to begin on Sunday.

Oh, if you’re looking for the Islanders-Penguins series schedule look no further: Here it is.
