Mathew Barzal News
New York Islanders center Mathew Barzal was a late scratch Friday against Calgary due to a lower-body injury. Head coach Lane Lambert said after the game that Barzal is dealing with a "tweak". The injury doesn't sound serious and the team is considering Barzal day-to-day. New York's star man was forced to exit the lineup with a five-game goal streak. Barzal has been making up for lost time after struggling massively to score at the start of the campaign. He leads the team with 41 points in 40 games, and with the next matchup not coming until Monday, there seems to be a good chance that Barzal misses only this one game.
New York Islanders center Mathew Barzal scored in a fourth consecutive game and handed out two assists as the team dominated against the Canucks on Tuesday with a 6-2 victory. Barzal ended up logging the game-winning goal and one of his helpers came with the man advantage. The talented playmaker has always enjoyed facing his hometown team, notching at least one point in all eight career appearances against the Canucks. Barzal hasn't done badly against other teams either and is now averaging over a point per game for the season, with 10 goals and 30 assists recorded in 39 outings.
New York Islanders center Mathew Barzal scored the team's only goal in Friday's 4-1 defeat to Nashville, netting on the power play 11:06 into the third period. He had a whopping nine shots in total in the contest and registered one hit with a minus-two rating in 20:06 of action. It's been a strange season for Barzal, as he is averaging over a point per game but this was only his third goal of the campaign. He sits among the league's best set-up men with 24 assists. Barzal is a 10.7 percent career shooter, so he has a lot of room for improvement from his current 4.7 shooting percentage.
New York Islanders center Mathew Barzal scored his first two goals of the campaign in Saturday's 5-2 defeat to Dallas. He gave the team two leads in the second period, netting his second goal on the power play, but the Stars were too strong in the end. Barzal has been off form in front of goal, but he can't really complain about how his season is going, with the 25-year-old averaging over a point per game. His 19 assists before his first goal in a season were the fourth most by a forward in league history. Nathan MacKinnon (21) and Leon Draisaitl (20) are the only players in the league this season with more helpers than him.
