  • Islanders' Valtteri Filppula: Sparks offense in Game 3 win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/14/19) Filppula notched two assists in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Penguins in Game 3.

    The veteran center managed only 31 points (17 goals, 14 helpers) through 72 regular-season games, but Filppula has provided a spark in the postseason, racking up three assists in three games. He'll look to keep rolling when the Isles try to complete the sweep Tuesday in Pittsburgh.

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/6/19) Filppula scored twice Saturday, including the game-winner, in a 3-0 win over Washington.

    The 35-year-old has changed his game dramatically from earlier in his career when he was a scoring line pivot. Filppula delivered 17 goals and 14 assists in 72 games as a hard-working, blue collar guy. He'll bring veteran presence to the Isles' postseason run.

    (4/6/19) Filppula (elbow) will play in the regular-season finale against the Capitals on Saturday.

    Islanders coach Barry Trotz confirmed the news. One shouldn't exactly consider this a meaningless contest for Filppula, as the team will want to ensure the utility forward with special teams acumen is primed for playoff action after missing eight straight. Filppula has generated 15 goals and 29 assists to complement a robust plus-17 rating through 71 games.

    Islanders' Valtteri Filppula: Skating with team

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/5/19) Filppula (elbow) took part in an optional practice for the Islanders on Thursday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Filppula has missed the past seven games due to a hyperextended elbow and is highly unlikely to play in the season finale at Washington on Saturday. Filppula is, however, on track to possibly return for Game 1 of the playoffs. The Islanders will welcome him back with open arms as without him they don't have a true center for their third line. Filppula has 15 goals and 29 points in 71 games in what may be his first and only season on Long Island.

    Islanders' Valtteri Filppula: Game 1 return still on table

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/3/19) Coach Barry Trotz indicated Wednesday that he hasn't ruled out Filppula (upper body) for Game 1 of the playoffs, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.

    Filppula was initially given a timetable that slated him to return after the first round of the playoffs, but it appears the veteran blueliner has a chance of beating that timeframe. He should provide a boost offensively for a club that has struggled to find the back of the net recently (2.25 goals per game in March), owning 15 goals and 14 assists over 71 games.
