Patrick Roy gets angry and the Islanders win

Patrick Roy's face turned red with anger, the New York Islanders head coach let emotions get the better of him, but his team still managed to beat the Penguins 5-4 in overtime on Tuesday night in Pittsburgh.

The Isles were in control of the game in the second period when Lars Eller reduced the deficit to 3-2. Roy tried to undo this success by switching to video playback, but that didn't work.

It was enough for the Quebec rider to explode as he seemed to have difficulty believing the referees' decision. In this sequence, he also decorated striker Mathew Barzal.

Roy must also have been seething with anger when the Penguins equalized in the second half of the third period. Valtteri Puustinen and Drew O'Connor caused a stir in less than a minute and extra time was necessary.

Luckily for the Islanders, defenseman Adam Pelech was able to break the deadlock with a perfect wrist shot. This ended New York's series of three defeats. Roy secured a fourth win in 10 games at the helm of the team.

The Penguins' setbacks continued with their fifth loss in six games. Their next opponent will be the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday at PPG Paints Arena.
