Pulock scored a goal on four shots in a 4-3 shootout loss to Buffalo on Tuesday.
Pulock snapped a point shot through traffic that eluded Buffalo netminder Michael Houser, giving the Islanders a 2-1 lead 3:44 into the second period. It was Pulock's second goal of the season and snapped his 10-game point streak. The 26-year-old defenseman has just 16 points in 53 games this season, but he's been more active offensively as of late, firing 13 shots on goal over his last three outings, his best three-game stretch in that category all year.
Pulock hasn't registered a point in his last eight games for the Islanders.
The last point for Pulock was his first goal of the season, a game-winner in overtime versus the Rangers. There was some hope that would open the floodgates for Pulock's offense, but instead, the opposite seems to have happened. What is probably even more concerning for the team, though, is that Pulock has a rating of minus-5 during those eight games, even with a plus-3 performance, also versus the Rangers, during this stretch. Pulock will try to reverse his fortunes when the Islanders take on those Rangers once again Saturday night.

Pulock picked a great time for his first goal of the season, converting on a Mathew Barzal pass 1:13 into overtime. The 26-year-old Pulock is up to 15 points, 92 shots on net, 77 hits, 76 blocks and a plus-14 rating in 42 contests overall. He had scored 29 goals over the last three years combined, so this may be the beginning of a return to form for the steady defenseman.
Pulock has 12 points this season but is still looking for his first goal.
Pulock has dented the iron more than a few times over the past half dozen games for the Islanders but has yet to wrinkle the twine. He has a rocket for a shot but has been unlucky this season. The Islanders have to hope the law of averages eventually favors him. Pulock had 29 goals during the previous three seasons, and it should be just a matter of time before his scoring touch returns.
Pulcok dished out a pair of helpers to go with three shots, one blocked shot, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 5-3 win over New Jersey.
In a game that featured eight goals, Pulock was remarkably the only player to tally multiple points. This was his first multi-point game of the year, and Pulock's still searching for his first goal after potting at least nine in each of the previous three seasons, but he's showing some signs of life offensively with four points in the past four games.
Pulock has 10 points this season in 26 games, but they have all been assists as he has yet to score a goal.
This is quite the contrast for Pulock, who scored 29 goals over the previous three seasons. Pulock hasn't had the best of puck luck as he dented the crossbar on a rocket of a shot from the point during last Saturday's game versus the Devils. Still, he is on the top power-play unit and the Islanders would like to see a shot or two elude the goaltender and put a number up on the board. The good news is Pulock hasn't taken his lack of goal scoring to the defensive side as he still sports a rating of plus-7, which is right in line with his previous best season of plus-21 in 2018-19.
Pulock hasn't scored a goal this season and has just five assists in 14 games.
This has to be a disappointment for the Islanders, as Pulock was being relied on to provide offense from the point with his big shot. Pulock was also put on the top power-play unit to take advantage of that shot. What also might concern the Islanders is that he averaged 2.4 shots per game last season. This year, however, he's down to 1.86. His ice time has remained stable, and he's seen almost an additional minute of average power-play time, so the decrease in shots should be raising a red flag or two. Perhaps Pulock is just trying too hard to justify his promotion, but if the production doesn't increase, he could see a demotion from the No. 1 power play.
Pulock (leg) will play in Saturday's road game against the Flyers, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.
Despite missing Saturday's morning skate, Pulock will avoid missing his first game of the year. The 26-year-old has just one point through seven games, but his 17 blocked shots and 13 shots on net are solid complementary numbers in that stretch.

Pulock (leg) was able to practice with the Islanders on Friday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Pulock seemed to be in discomfort late in the game Thursday when he got tied up with Tom Wilson of the Capitals. However, his ability to practice Friday is a positive sign that he will be able to play Saturday in Philadelphia.

The Islanders have struggled to score in the early part of this campaign and need contributions from everyone, including the defense.

Pulock is the number one defenseman for the Islanders, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.
Pulock can play in all situations and on both ends of the ice. On offense, Pulock has a booming shot that can beat any goaltender, and he will play on the top power-play unit. Defensively, Pulock has become much more consistent, which is a must under coach Barry Trotz, who believes in playing the game from the goaltender on out. Pulock is expected to be paired with Adam Pelech to start the season.
Pulock inked a two-year, $10 million pact with the Islanders on Wednesday.
Pulock reached the 30-point mark for the third straight season and matched his career-high 10 goals. The 26-year-old defender should be capable of putting up similar production in 2020-21 and could even push for the 40-point mark as he continues to feature on the power play. While he shouldn't be an early-round selection in re-draft formats, Pulock can offer solid mid-range fantasy value given his offensive upside.
