PITTSBURGH– The Pittsburgh Penguins’ stay in the playoffs didn’t last very long.

The team was swept out of the first round 4-0, with the final defeat coming at the hands of the New York Islanders on Tuesday night.

Pittsburgh was never really in the series, dropping Game One on the road by a score of 4-3, and going down 2-0 by losing Game Two 3-1.

Even returning to home ice didn’t help the Penguins, who dropped Games Three & Four in short order.

Despite the disappointing playoff performance, the Penguins will still be able to say they have won two of the last four Stanley Cups.
