The Penguins, riding a 14-0-2 surge that vaulted them up the Eastern Conference standings, got three goals from Ryan Malone, two from Mark Recchi and four assists from NHL scoring leader Sidney Crosby, but couldn't survive shaky goaltending by Marc-Andre Fleury.
Sillinger took a pass from Andy Hilbert in the high slot and got off a shot that hit under Fleury's left arm and carried into the net for his 20th goal.
Chris Simon scored twice for New York, Viktor Kozlov, Jason Blake and Miroslav Satan added goals, and Marc-Andre Bergeron had two assists in his Islanders debut one day after being acquired from Edmonton.
Pittsburgh led 3-1 and 5-4 but couldn't hold on.
