Losers

Anders Lee: have you seen him?

Over his last three games, Anders Lee has a single point to his name, a helper on Tom Kuhnhackl‘s goal versus Washington. He hasn’t hit the back of the net since playing against Columbus on December 23. He was close to getting one against the Devils.

He’s also having a hard time just getting the puck on net. He put three shots on net against the Devils, but only hit the net once in the other two games this week. Take a step back and he’s only hit the net more than once on one occasion – the game versus the Devils – over his last five games.

Jordan Eberle: ditto

Just like Lee, Jordan Eberle has been missing this week. Eberle didn’t pick up a point and has been virtually absent for most nights.

Eberle hasn’t put a point for five straight games and hasn’t scored a goal since December 14. That’s ten games with a single goal to his name.

Getting six shots on net against Toronto was a good way to try and break that streak, but, as we all know, he wasn’t able to do that. The Islanders need him to pick it up and soon.

Noah Dobson: Nutmegged 

Kasperi Kapanen is going to haunt the Islanders rookie’s dreams for a while. Kapanen made the Islanders 12th overall pick from 2018 look silly by playing the puck right between his legs before setting up Pierre Engvall for the easy goal.
