Simon Holmstrom roofed a shot for the go-ahead goal at 14:27 of the third as the New York Islanders topped the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-4 on Wednesday night in Elmont, N.Y.

Holmstrom, Brock Nelson and Samuel Bolduc each had a goal and an assist and Casey Cizikas and Kyle Palmieri also scored for the Islanders, who finished the regular season 39-27-16 to record 94 points. They begin a playoff series Saturday against Carolina.

New York goaltender Ilya Sorokin made 40 saves. Sorokin made a save on a penalty shot by Sidney Crosby with 30 seconds left.

Evgeni Malkin had a goal and an assist, Rickard Rakell, Valtteri Puustinen and Jeff Carter also scored and Crosby and Michael Bunting each had two assists for the Penguins, who finished 38-32-12 with 88 points after being eliminated from playoff contention a night earlier.

Pittsburgh goaltender Alex Nedeljkovic made 27 saves.

Nelson gave the Islanders a 1-0 lead at 4:56 of the first on a backdoor play set up by Holmstrom.

At 18:29 of the first, Rakell tied it for the Penguins on a blast from near the top of the left circle.

Malkin scored career goal No. 498 on a power play at 6:14 of the second for a 2-1 Pittsburgh lead. A pass from Crosby went in off him. There was a review to ensure that Malkin did not kick the puck in.

At 7:05 of the second, Puustinen beat Sorokin on a short breakaway, but the Islanders successfully challenged that he was offside.

Cizikas tied it 2-2 at 13:19 of the second on a deflection of a shot by Alexander Romanov.

Puustinen got a goal that stood 1:18 later for a 3-2 Penguins lead. He stole the puck in the slot and shot it over Sorokin’s glove.

A power-play goal by Palmieri withstood a Penguins challenge with 16 seconds left in the second for another tie.

Bolduc got a power-play goal at 1:36 of the third for a 4-3 New York lead when his shot went in off Pittsburgh’s Ryan Shea.

On a power play, Carter deflected the puck in at 10:56 of the third for a 4-all tie.
