Anthony Beauvillier’s scoring returned with vengeance, with a four-point night in the New York Islanders 7-5 victory over the New York Rangers.

Heading into last night, Anthony Beauvillier was on the verge of being a healthy scratch or even being sent down by the New York Islanders. In his first 16 games, Beau had just one point a goal that came on October 27.

Last night, Beau returned with vengeance and it was the guy we saw down the stretch last season playing with Mathew Barzal.

After falling behind 2-0 Beauvillier scored to make it a 2-1 game at the 9:35 mark on the period. It was off a deflection from Thomas Hickey, a sign of things to come.

The second period is when Beauvillier really heated up. He scored on a breakaway courtesy of Valtteri Filppula and then at the five-minute mark of the period he netted one off a tip from Johnny Boychuk to complete the hat trick.

Beau would pick up a secondary assist on the Leo Komarov goal in the third period as the Islanders went on to win by a score of 7-5. A four-point night for Mr. Beauvillier in what was a much needed coming out party.

With Michael Dal Colle getting the call-up yesterday, Beau’s ice time was slipping away like sand in an hourglass. Luckily, he went off at the perfect time. Hopefully, this is the start of Beauvillier coming to form.
