The Skinny - Game 60

Isles 3, Carolina 0  

Thomas Greiss made 45 saves for his 8th career shutout as the Islanders recorded shutouts on back-to-back nights for the first time in their history as the Islanders moved back into a playoff spot with a 3-0 blanking of the Carolina Hurricanes before a crowd of 15,448 at PNC Arena.

It's the Isles' first road shutout since Jaroslav Halak blanked Carolina on April 6th in Raleigh and the first time they had consecutive shutouts since January 16-19, 2017 vs Boston (in Jack Capuano's finale) and Dallas (in Doug Weight's coaching debut).

Doug Weight coached his 100th game; he has the best record through 100 games of any coach in Islander history. An awarded goal for John Tavares in an empty net situation allowed him to reach 30 goals for the 4th time in his career.

Greiss makes 45 saves as Islanders get back into a playoff position with shutout win

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

The New York Islanders were treating Friday's game in Carolina as a playoff game. 

They needed to take care of business against a team they were chasing for the East's second wild card and after starting the day a point behind the Carolina Hurricanes, they finished a point above thanks to a 3-0 shutout win.

"It was a four-point game for us," Anthony Beauvillier said. "It was a playoff game. It means a lot right now, we're in a great spot and we need to keep pushing."

GAME NOTES


There wasn't much time for the Islanders to savor Thursday's 3-0 win over the Rangers, as the team flew down to Raleigh for Friday's matchup with the Hurricanes. 

The Islanders are completing a back-to-back set on Friday, but so are the Hurricanes, who flew back to North Carolina after losing 5-2 to the New Jersey Devils in Newark on Thursday. With regards to rest, it's advantage no one.

The Skinny - Game 59

Isles 3, Rangers 0  

Jaroslav Halak became only the 2nd goalie in Islander history to stop at least 50 shots in a shutout and Mathew Barzal assisted on all three goals, including Jordan Eberle's 20th, as the Islanders blanked the Rangers 3-0 before a sellout crowd of 15,795 at Barclays Center.

It's the Isles' first shutout since Halak blanked Carolina on April 6th in Raleigh and their first shutout on home ice since Thomas Greiss blanked Dallas 3-0 last January 19th in Doug Weight's coaching debut.

Eberle reached the 20-goal mark for the 6th time in his career; 16 of his 20 goals have been assisted by Barzal. Barzal recorded his 7th three-point game of the season and (per Elias Sports Bureau) became only the second rookie in Islander history with four three-assist games.

The Isles were outshot 50-35; it's only the sixth time in franchise history that they have allowed at least 50 shots at home and the first time that they have allowed at least 50 shots in consecutive games.

3 Takeaways: Islanders 3, Rangers 0

Halak makes 50 saves for shutout, Barzal dishes three assists in win

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

Points mattered more than pride on Thursday, but the New York Islanders took both from the New York Rangers, scoring a 3-0 shutout over their rivals at Barclays Center. 

Jaroslav Halak made 50 saves for his first shutout of the season, while Mathew Barzal had a game-high three assists. That, plus goals from Josh Bailey, Jordan Eberle and Thomas Hickey, added up to an important win for the Islanders, who used the spark of a Ranger game to snap a two-game losing streak and pick up a pair of points in their playoff chase.

The Islanders fall to the Blue Jackets 4-1 at Barclays Center

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

The New York Islanders suffered their second loss in as many games, falling to the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-1 on Tuesday night at Barclays Center. 

John Tavares opened the scoring with a power-play goal - and his 600th career NHL points - in the first period, but the Blue Jackets responded with four straight goals and put up 51 shots on the Islanders. 

Pierre-Luc Dubois' power-play goal at 19:03 of the second period held up as the eventual winner while a pair of goals 43 seconds apart from Brandon Dubinsky and Cam Atkinson in the third period turned a 2-1 game into the 4-1 final. 

Here are three takeaways from Tuesday's game:
