New York Islanders Daily Anders Lee Scores Twice In Win
The New York Islanders beat the Colorado Avalanche by a score of 5-1. It was another dominating offensive performance by the Isles.
The New York Islanders have been red hot under Doug Weight, that isn’t news. The surprising thing has been the play of Anders Lee, who added two more goals to his goal total on the year.
Let me explain like the Isles Anders Lee got out to a very slow start. He had one goal through the first 18 games of the season! He was on a snail’s pace of goal scoring.
After a very productive rookie yea in 2014-2015 where Lee put up 25 goals, he took a clear step backward. Last year he put up just 15 goals and struggled to get any consistency going offensively.

Ever since his two-goal performance in Los Angeles Anders Lee has scored and scored quite often. He netted goals 20 and 21 on the season. If my math is right, he’s on pace for 32 goals this year which would be an outstanding number.
After last year expectations diminished for Lee. The common denominator was that his rookie year was the fluke year and that he would more likely put up numbers to closer to what he put up last year.
That seems like the farthest thing from the truth now. He’s going to the net and deflecting shots, just like he’s supposed to do. It’s a winning formula for him.
