At the All-Star break, the New York Islanders sit in third place in the division. Here’s how they are looking on-pace wise.
The New York Islanders currently sit at 29-15-5 through the first 49 games of the season. Yes, we’re a little bit past the halfway point, but at the end of the day here we just reached the All-Star break so it’s a good time to look at pace stats.
Now, pace doesn’t always mean that’s what a player is going to produce. As we know, looking at you Jordan Eberle and Anders Lee, NHL players tend to be extremely streaky.
So if I say that someone is on pace for 50 points that means using the number of games they’ve played so far this year based on their points per game rate this is what they are expected to put out the rest of the way.

Semyon Varlamov has a .915 save percentage and a 2,59 goals against average while Thomas Greiss is holding down a .925 save percentage and a 2.43 goals against average.
