For the second game in a row, New York Islanders forward Brock Nelson has had a rather productive game.
It’s no secret, I get on Brock Nelson, and the rest of the New York Islanders for that matter, when they deserve it. I also like to give players credit when credit is due. Brock has had back-to-back productive games for the New York Islanders.
In last night’s loss, Brock had a couple assists to his name, bringing his point total up to 20 on the season. That number still isn’t very good but he has had two much better performances. Heck, last night he even had an impressive defensive play!
Look at Brock getting the stick in there to break up the wraparound attempt! We updated his Hibernation Meter to fully awake after tonight, which is how you really know he’s been playing better.
On Saturday night against Columbus, he was even able to find the back of the net.
As Mitch likes to say on the podcast Brock Nelson is a Vitamin D addict. He thrives in the early parts of the year and towards the end of the year when the days get longer. As the sun stays out longer Brock Nelson plays better. It’s science folks. Expect Brock to start to turn it around and somehow get somewhere close to his 20 goal 40 point mark on the year.
