UNIONDALE, N.Y. - Brooks Orpik's goal would have been memorable even if wasn't in overtime and didn't put the Pittsburgh Penguins into the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.When you are a defensive-minded defenceman with only 12 goals in nine NHL seasons, they all tend to stand out.Orpik fired a slap shot from the left point that Indianapolis Colts Jersey hit the back of the net 7:49 into overtime Saturday night to give the Penguins a 4-3 victory over the New York Islanders that ended the Eastern Conference first-round series in six David Parry Jersey games.The top-seeded Penguins advanced to face the No. 7 Ottawa Senators despite being outshot 38-21 in the decisive win.Orpik had never scored in 77 previous playoff games and didn't have one in the past 106 contests of any kind since his last goal, also against the Islanders, on Nov. 21, 2011."Felt great, of course, to score. I don't score too many," Orpik said.Evgeni Malkin moved the puck from behind the net to Tyler Kennedy, who fed it to Orpik. The drive might have clipped Islanders forward Brad Boyes on its way past goalie Evgeni Nabokov."I'm definitely not Josh Ferguson Jersey a goal-scorer, but he laid it right on a tee for me," Orpik said. "I wish I can say I was trying to go there, but I was just trying to put it on net, and found a hole."The Islanders were just 5:16 away from sending the series back to Pittsburgh for one more game when another defenceman, Paul Martin, got the Penguins even for the third time."It's great to finish it, I Reggie Wayne Jersey tell you that," goalie Tomas Vokoun said. "We got everything we could have handled. They played great and it was a tough series."
