Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby said he sees a lot of the New York Islanders in the Ottawa Senators.

That’s a compliment.

“I think the way (the Islanders) forwards play, their skill and the speed they play with, I think we’re going to see a lot of that with Ottawa,” Crosby told QMI Agency after the Penguins eliminated the eighth-seeded Islanders Saturday night.

The Eastern Conference-champion Penguins will now face the seventh-seeded Senators, who defeated the second-seeded Montreal Canadiens in five games.
