NHL Note - New York Islanders Barzal, Mathew

Dec 28, 2017 - 9:51 AM C Mathew Barzal scored the overtime game-winner at 1:08 as the Islanders beat the Sabres 3-2. LW Josh Bailey handed the puck off to Barzal at center ice. Barzal skated with the puck to the back of the neutral zone and then darted up the ice before the Sabres could pull off their own shift change.

Barzal blew by Sabres D Rasmus Ristolainen and fired a shot before Ryan O'Reilly could get his stick into the path of the puck, which sailed between the legs of G Robin Lehner.

The goal was the fifth in the last three games for Barzal, who earned NHL second star of the week honors last week after collecting his first hat trick in Saturday's win over the Jets.
