The New York Islanders played four games this week and were again undefeated in regulation. That’s the main story, but the stories within are this week’s three stars.
The main story surrounding the New York Islanders is the point streak. It’s now reached 17 games after an overtime loss to the San Jose Sharks on Saturday night. With a 15-0-2 record during that streak, the Islanders have picked up 32 points from a possible 34 points.
The Islanders haven’t lost in regulation since game four of the season, all the way back on October 11. That’s the story when you talk about the New York Islanders. But there are always stories within the story.
Last week, the Islanders second line wingers were the main takeaways with Anthony Beauvillier and Derick Brassard combining for nine points (5 goals, 4 assists). Ryan Pulock was another such story with two helpers and 47 minutes of ice time as he won the third star of the week.
This week, with two games against the Pittsburgh Penguins and one on the road against the San Jose Sharks, the Islanders were able to keep the point streak alive. But what players stood out from within those three games?
