Barzal stayed on a loose puck at the side of the net and stuffed it past Tuukka Rask on his third try, squaring the game at 1-1 with 5:26 remaining in regulation.

Islanders' Mathew Barzal: Registers power-play assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barzal notched a power-play assist, four shots on goal and two blocked shots in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Bruins in Game 2.

Barzal had the secondary helper on Jean-Gabriel Pageau's tally to give the Islanders a 3-1 lead late in the second period. It's been a relatively quiet postseason for Barzal, who has just four assists and 20 shots on net through eight contests. While he's best known as a high-end playmaker, the 24-year-old center will need to chip in some goals to keep up with the Bruins' top line in this second-round series.

Islanders' Mathew Barzal: Now 11 games without goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barzal picked up an assist in a 6-3 loss to Washington on Saturday.

He'd been held off the score sheet for four games before Saturday. Barzal is an incredible player, but since his five-point brilliance on April Fool's Day, he has gone without a goal (and put up just six assists) in his last 11 games. It's a bad time for Barzal's offense to dry up as your team heads into the stretch drive.

Barzal also used his speed to set up Anthony Beauvillier's third-period tally, driving hard to the net and creating a rebound for Beauvillier to clean up. The 23-year-old Barzal has 10 goals and 27 points with a plus-12 rating in 35 games.
