The Buzzer: Barzal makes Islanders history; Duchene trade makes headlines
Player of the night: Mathew Barzal
What a night in Brooklyn.
While the Colorado Avalanche made headlines by trading Matt Duchene to Ottawa as part of a blockbuster three-team deal, the New York Islanders were busy continuing their strong start to this season with a 6-4 victory against the Avs.
Mathew Barzal, the 20-year-old center, had a big night for the Islanders with five assists. He improved his point streak to five games, with 10 points in that span following Sunday’s big outing. He also made a little Islanders history in the process, too.
Highlight of the night:
Jonathan Drouin scored the winning goal for the Montreal Canadiens on Sunday, as they shut out the Chicago Blackhawks by a score of 2-0.
