The Islanders played twice this week, picking up another two wins. Everyone on this team is performing well, so picking out three stars is going to be difficult.
The winning just won’t stop for the Islanders. The blue and orange were only on the ice twice this past week. At some point, the schedule will become more congested right?
I guess I should be glad, all this time off is allowing some of the Islanders players to get back into full health and it’s helping keep the team fresh.
Unlike last week, the Islanders were perfect with a 2-0-0 record this week. It was a little shaky, but the Isles got all four points. And at the end of the day, that’s all that matters.
Against the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Islanders were able to pull away with a 5-4 regulation win. The scoreline doesn’t do the game justice. The Islanders were in control for much of the proceedings, eventually holding a 5-2 lead.
In the final few minutes, the Leafs would chip away at the deficit to make the scoreline a little more flattering.
The Islanders true scare this week came on the road against the Philadelphia Flyers. The Flyers held a 3-0 lead to start the third period and nothing the Islanders did worked. Including a 4-on-1 where they hit the post.
But in the third period, the Islanders were able to turn it all around thanks to Anthony Beauvillier and Mathew Barzal. The two players the Islanders got out of the Griffin Reinhart trade powered the Islanders to victory and preserve their point streak. A streak that is now at 14.
So who stood out this week for the New York Islanders? Last week it was Thomas Greiss, Casey Cizikas, and Mathew Barzal. Who are the Isles three stars this week?
