Team Canada dominated Denmark 7-1 yesterday.  New York Islanders forwards Josh Bailey, Mathew Barzal, and Jordan Eberle had points.

The New York Islanders might not be in the playoffs, but they’re having a major impact at the IIHF World Tournament. Just the other day we talked about Mathew Barzal leading the way in points at the tournament.

Well, the Islanders domination of the tournament continued in Canada’s 7-1 victory over Denmark. Mathew Barzal, Jordan Eberle, and Josh Bailey were all in on the action.

Mathew Barzal had three assists in the game. We’re used to Barzy having multi-assist games with the Islanders it’s something he did quite often last year. It’s good to see the youngster have an impact on the international stage as well.

Jordan Eberle notched a goal in the Canada win. During the regular season, Eberle had 25 goals in a nice bounce-back year in his first season with the club.

Then, of course, there was Bailey with a goal and an assist. Bailey had a career high of 18 goals and 53 assists. To see him produce on the international stage just confirms that he is an impact player, not carried by John Tavares.
