  • Islanders' Mathew Barzal: First goal in 11 games

    Barzal scored the game-winning goal in a 2-1 overtime win Saturday over the Golden Knights.

    There were 32 seconds remaining when he faked a one-timer, skated into the top of the right circle, and went blocker side on Logan Thompson. The goal was a welcome relief for Barzal, who had just one assist in the previous 10 games and hadn't scored in the same span. Still, the offensive wizard has 43 points, including 12 goals, in 51 games this season and could see his point totals go up if the Isles trade for a bonafide scoring threat before the deadline.

  • Islanders' Mathew Barzal: Scoreless in six straight

    Barzal hasn't registered a point since sitting out a game Jan. 6 with a lower-body injury.

    There is no word on whether the injury is related to the lack of production from Barzal or if he's simply in a slump. Barzal has 11 goals and 30 assists in 46 games this season. The assists and points lead the Islanders, while he's fourth on the team in goals. The Islanders need more from Barzal, but a lack of scoring wingers for him to set up has seemingly hurt his production. The center's supporting cast may not change this season unless the team is willing to make a big trade before the March 3 deadline.

  • Islanders' Mathew Barzal: Nets 100th goal in 400th game

    Barzal scored a goal in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Kraken.

    One game, two milestones -- Barzal scored his 100th career goal in his 400th game Sunday. He didn't get much on a shot set up by Casey Cizikas' centering pass, but it was enough to fool Martin Jones. That was it for the Islanders' offense in the loss. Barzal has 348 points over parts of seven seasons in blue and orange. He's scored six of his nine goals this year over his last eight games, and he's up to 37 points, 91 shots and a plus-6 rating through 38 outings.

  • Islanders' Mathew Barzal: Two points in loss

    Barzal logged a goal and an assist in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Rangers.

    Barzal beat Igor Shesterkin on a breakaway to give the Islanders a 2-1 lead early in the second period. He'd add an assist on Alexander Romanov's tally later in the frame.

  • Islanders' Mathew Barzal: Finds twine Friday

    Barzal scored a goal on four shots and blocked two shots in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Coyotes.

    Barzal put the Islanders up 2-0 at 13:33 of the first period. The goal was his first in six games, and he now has two tallies and three assists through seven outings in December. While he's at only four goals on the season, he's added 27 helpers in 31 contests, ranking sixth in the league in assists. The center has picked up 75 shots on net and a plus-1 rating while logging top-line minutes.

  • Islanders' Mathew Barzal: Goalless streak at five games

    Barzal hasn't lit the lamp in his last five games and has only one goal in his last 11 contests.

    This has been a strange season so far for Barzal. He has 30 points in 30 games but only three goals. Barzal did score the only shootout goal for the Islanders in their 4-3 loss to the Bruins on Tuesday, but wrinkling the twine has become elusive for the team's most skilled offensive player. Perhaps Barzal will find that goal-scoring touch Friday when the Islanders begin their longest road trip of the season in Arizona.

  • Islanders' Mathew Barzal: Nets lone goal on power play

    Barzal scored a power-play goal on nine shots and went minus-2 in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Predators.

    Barzal cashed in for the first time in six games to get the Islanders on the board in the third period. They couldn't find an equalizer. This was an encouraging game for Barzal, whose nine shots marked a season high. The talented center has three goals, 24 assists, 13 power-play points, 64 shots on net and a plus-1 rating through 25 contests. He's earned 12 of his 27 points in his last 10 outings.

  • Islanders' Mathew Barzal: Paces NHL with 23 helpers

    Barzal was credited with two assists during Friday's 3-2 victory over the host Blue Jackets.

  • Islanders' Mathew Barzal: Moves up on scoring list

    Barzal was credited with an assist during Monday's 3-2 overtime victory over the host Maple Leafs.

    Barzal, who leads the Islanders with 22 points, extended his point streak to a season-high five games (two goals, four helpers). Monday's assist marked the 25-year-old center's 333rd career point, tying Tomas Jonsson for 21st on the team's all-time scoring list.

  • Islanders' Mathew Barzal: First goals of season

    Barzal scored two goals Saturday in a 5-2 loss to the Stars.

    The goals were his first of the season -- it just took 19 games to get them. Barzal put the Isles up 1-0 at the 1:30 mark fo the second period when he tipped an Alexander Romanov shot. And then he converted a Brock Nelson pass on the power play later the same period. Despite his low goal totals this season, Barzal is on the best scoring pace since his rookie year. He has 21 points in 19 games.

  • Islanders' Mathew Barzal: Adds two more assists

    Barzal registered two assists in Monday's 4-2 victory over Ottawa.

    Barzal has 18 assists in 17 games this season and has been particularly good lately with seven assists in his last five contests. He hasn't scored a goal yet despite recording 44 shots, including two Monday. He's never been a major goal scorer, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him end his current drought sooner rather than later. In the meantime, the number of assists he's collected has more than made up for the lack of goals.

  • Islanders' Mathew Barzal: Racks up three assists in win

    Barzal produced three assists, five shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Flames.

    Barzal still hasn't lit the lamp on his own this year, but he's recorded four multi-assist efforts in 13 games. He had a hand in three of the Islanders' four goals Monday, giving him 14 helpers this season. His lack of scoring isn't an issue with effort -- he has 37 shots on net this year, but luck hasn't been on his side. The 25-year-old is still finding ways to produce, so there's little chance head coach Lane Lambert takes him off the first line.
