New York Islanders Dominate Rangers In Impressive Return

New York Islanders v New York Rangers

The New York Islanders head into MSG on Saturday afternoon to take on the New York Rangers as these two bitter rivals renew hostilities in a weekend matinee. Jordan Eberle led the team with four assists in the blowout. The Isles are now just one point out of a playoff spot and have jumped over Philadelphia and Carolina in the standings. "It was a great team effort honestly". "Those are the flurries, those are the saves he was absolutely in charge of his game".

The Rangers have lost two in a row and three of their last four. That is what got goalie Ondrej Pavelec pulled, having given up five goals on 20 shots, replaced by Henrik Lundqvist with 13:09 left in the second period. "Points mean a lot right now", Lundqvist said.

"I think the Rangers are starting to look and say, 'are there other moves we can make?' Similar to the one with Derek Stepan in Arizona at last year's draft", Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman said on Saturday. The boos were raining down on the Blueshirts as Lundqvist was summoned, and the mood wasn't much different on the bench.

Yet by the time the third period started, some stellar play by goalie Jaroslav Halak to go along with the brilliance of Barzal had carried them to that four-goal advantage.

The Coquitlam, BC native wasn't finished there, and he extended the Islanders' lead to three almost four minutes later.

Thomas Hickey and Cal Clutterbuck would add goals for good measure and it was an impressively dominant 7-2 win for the Islanders on the road. The Isles then scored three more in the second. That's when Barzal score his first on a rush off the right wall and then a jaw-dropping backhand that found the top corner just 37 seconds in. He then scored his 15th of the season when he knocked in the rebound of his own shot at 4:11.

The Islanders next game is on Monday against the Montreal Canadiens. Marchand also scored in regulation, helping the Bruins improve to 9-0-3 in their past 12 games. Jonathan Bernier made 27 saves. The 24-year-old center was moving and speaking to medical staff before he departed to an ovation from the Bell Centre crowd. Officials opted to play the final 1:37 of the second after intermission. Boeser has 22 goals and 18 assists in 41 games for the Canucks.

Wayne Simmonds, Travis Konecny and Michael Raffl also scored for the Flyers, who have won five of six overall.

Period two is when things really began to take off.

Barzal added two more secondary assists in the third period to secure his second five-point game of the season, matching Bryan Trottier's franchise rookie record. However, Shane Prince made it 2-1 to end the first period, and everything went downhill from there.
