Fast-finishing Penguins open playoffs against Islanders

PITTSBURGH (AP) Kris Letang has never missed the playoffs during his 15-year career. Still, the Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman knows not all postseason opportunities are equal.

"Sometimes you have that feeling inside you like `This year is a good year,' like you have a good team," Letang said.

Something Letang believes this edition of the Penguins are following an eventful regular season in which they navigated a stream of injuries to high-profile players on their way to their first division title in seven years.
