The Islanders Informer
Entries with the tag: john tavares
This early in the season every team has something to work on. The goal for every team is to get better every game. Every team wants to play hard every night and learn from their mistakes. After the first few games this season, the Isles had a lot to work on. Nothing much has changed since then.
In a 4-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning last night, the Isles managed only 17 shots on goal. Michael Grabner scored the only goal. Through the first five games this season, the Islanders have scored 12 goals. Eight of those goals have been scored by the Islanders top line of John Tavares, Matt Moulson, and PA Parenteau.
The Islanders top line of Matt Moulson, John Tavares, and PA Parenteau has been stellar the last three games. Last night, in a 4-2 win over the New York Rangers, Tavares netted a hat trick and added an assist, Moulson added one goal and one assist, and Parenteau registered three helpers. Against the Rangers, the Islanders top line totaled nine points. The line also registered eight shots on goal and was a collective +6 on the night.
John Tavares is a scoring machine right now and netted a hat trick last night in the Islanders 4-2 win over the New York Rangers. Watch all three of JT’s goals in the video below.
Mark Streit hadn’t played a game in 17 months, but if Saturday was any indication, Streit hasn’t missed a beat. While playing 24 minutes in a 6-2 Islanders preseason win over the New Jersey Devils on Saturday night at Nassau Coliseum, Streit scored one goal and notched two assists. The Islanders missed Streit quarterbacking the power play last season. With Streit manning the point, the Islanders were three for six on the power play. Streit looked like he is in great shape and skated well. Playing 24 minutes this early in the preseason is a good indication of things to come this season. Streit showed no ill effects coming off of two shoulder surgeries in the offseason.
