Lee scored an empty-net goal while logging 14:56 of ice time in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Penguins. Lee was able to secure the 3-0 series lead for his team, depositing the puck into the empty net from his own zone. The point was Lee's third of the series, and he now has a point in each game in the postseason. The Minnesota native has been a two-way player also, collecting 11 hits, two blocks and a plus-4 rating. Lee has averaged 3:21 of average power-play ice time in the first three games, so don't expect him to slow down anytime soon.
Lee is expected to be re-signed by the Islanders after the season ends, Arthur Staple of the Athletic reports. Lee has 27 goals and 47 points in 76 games for an offensively challenged Islanders team this season. Those numbers are solid when you consider the mediocre talent around him.
Lee scored the game-winning goal Thursday in a 2-1 win over the Canadiens. While it was only his eighth point in a stretch of 24 games, Lee's goal dealt a massive blow to Montreal's playoff hopes, as New York's captain converted on a 2-on-1 opportunity late in the third period, after a miscommunication on the part of two Montreal players. Thursday's deciding goal represents his 25th of the season, giving Lee 45 points through 70 games in 2018-19.
Lee got the Islanders on the board with his 21st goal of the year in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Oilers on Thursday. Lee has now scored in three straight games, all against the Alberta-based teams. He also led the Islanders in shots with five and added two hits in a strong all-around performance, despite skating only 13:08.
Lee notched his 20th goal of the year in a 4-2 loss to the Flames on Wednesday. Lee's 20th goal of the year tied the game early in the third period, but the Flames took over later in the frame. He has scored in consecutive games after recording only one assist in the prior 11 games. Lee is up to 40 points in 59 games, and may be returning to his early-season form.
