Frans Nielsen registered a goal and two assists for the Islanders, who won for just the second time in their last seven games. Evgeni Nabokov stopped 39 Pittsburgh shots, including 19 in the second period.
One-goal games have been the norm for New York this season. Nine of its first 10 games have been decided by the slimmest of margins.
