Game Recaps


Andy Greene recorded an assist in Game 6 versus the Lightning. It was his first point in a while.

Fantasy Impact: Greene has been in the league for 15 years. At this point, he should only be owned in deeper leagues.


Scott Mayfield scored a key goal in Game 6 versus the Lightning. His goal tied the game in the third period which helped the Islanders to make it to overtime where they won.

Fantasy Impact: Mayfield is not much of a fantasy asset and tallied 15 points in the regular season. Unless you are in a deep league, you can probably find someone else on your waiver wire.


Adam Pelech recorded an assist versus Tampa Bay in Game 6. It was a key goal as it tied the game which stayed tied until the Islanders won in overtime.

Fantasy Impact: Pelech is a low-end fantasy asset for deep leagues. In his previous two seasons where he played more than 44 games, he was around 20 points, but he only managed 14 points this season.


Semyon Varlamov saved 30 of the 31 shots he faced in Game 7 versus the Lightning. However, that one goal was the difference as Tampa Bay won 1-0 to win the series.

Fantasy Impact: Varlamov ended up going 19-11-4 with a 2.04 GAA for the regular season. He is a goalie who should be owned in most leagues if he is a starter.


Jordan Eberle scored a goal versus the Lightning in Game 6. The goal started the comeback from down 2-0 toward the 3-2 overtime win.

Fantasy Impact: Eberle has been a solid contributor for a long time. He produced 33 points in the regular season.


Anthony Beauvillier scored a goal versus Tampa Bay in Game 6. His goal was the overtime winner that sent the series to Game 7.

Fantasy Impact: Beauvillier ended the regular season with 15 goals and 13 assists. Beauvillier is a former 2015 first-round pick. He was coming off a career-high 39 points last season but will fell short this season.


Matthew Barzal recorded two assists in Game 6 versus the Lightning. The Islanders would win 3-2 in overtime.

Fantasy Impact: Barzal finished the regular season with 17 goals and 28 assists. He was the best offensive fantasy option on the Islanders this season.


Ilya Sorokin saved 21 of the 26 shots he faced in Game 5 versus Tampa Bay. He entered the game with 4:33 left in the first period.

Fantasy Impact: Sorokin went 13-6-3 with a 2.17 GAA in the regular season. He is a very good platoon goalie who could be a really good one if he got a starting job.


Josh Bailey scored a goal in Game 4 versus the Lightning. The goal was his sixth goal of the playoffs.

Fantasy Impact: Bailey has been a solid fantasy option and recorded 35 points this season. The past four seasons had been his most productive with point totals between 43 and 71 points. He appears like he will fall short, albeit in a shorter season.


Brock Nelson recorded an assist in Game 4 versus Tampa Bay. It was his fifth assist of the postseason.

Fantasy Impact: Nelson had been a consistent solid fantasy contributor for the last several seasons. He had reached 40 points in five of the past six seasons. He fell short of it this season with 33 points but mostly because the season was shortened.


Matt Martin scored a goal versus the Lightning in Game 4. The goal was the eventual game-winner.

Fantasy Impact: Martin is not much of a fantasy option. He should be avoided in most leagues.


Cal Clutterbuck recorded two assists in Game 4 versus the Lightning. The second assist came on the eventual game-winner.

Fantasy Impact: Clutterbuck is not much of a fantasy option as a winger who only put up 11 points in the regular season. Avoid him outside of really deep leagues.


Casey Cizikas recorded an assist in Game 3 versus Tampa Bay. The assist was his third of the postseason.

Fantasy Impact: Cizikas is a very low-end fantasy asset in medium-sized fantasy leagues as he recorded 14 points in the regular season. Hopefully, there is someone better on your league's waiver wire.


Nick Leddy recorded an assist versus Tampa Bay in Game 2. The assist was his sixth of the playoffs.

Fantasy Impact: Leddy finished the regular season with two goals and 29 assists. He is a veteran who is fairly consistent.


Ryan Pulock scored a goal in Game 1 versus the Lightning. His fourth goal of the playoffs was the eventual game-winner.

Fantasy Impact: Pulock finished with two goals and 15 assists. This was far below the 30's he had reached in the previous three seasons.


Tuukka Rask surrendered four goals on 27 shots faced in a 6-2 Game 6 loss to the Islanders Wednesday. The last two goals scored by New York were empty-netters as the sealed the victory and eliminated the Bruins in six games during the second round of the playoffs.

Fantasy Impact: Rask will wrap up this rather short post-season with a 6-4 record, 2.36 GAA, and 0.919 save percentage in 11 starts. It is unknown if the 34 year old will be back in Boston next season. Only time will tell.


Brad Marchand scored two power-play goals in a 6-2 Game 6 loss to the New York Islanders. Boston has been eliminated four game to two.

Fantasy Impact: Marchand will finish this post-season up with eight goals and 12 points through 11 games played.


Noah Dobson with an assist versus the Bruins in Game 6. The assist was his seventh of the postseason, four in the last three games.

Fantasy Impact: Dobson was the 12th overall pick in the 2018 draft. He started off his NHL career slow and had 14 points in the regular season.


Travis Zajac scored a goal in Game 6 versus Boston. The goal was his first of the playoffs

Fantasy Impact: Zajac has been in the league for more than a decade. He has not been a strong fantasy asset last season or this one.


Jean-Gabriel Pageau recorded two assists in Game 6 versus the Bruins. He now has 10 assists and three goals this postseason.

Fantasy Impact: Pageau has been a decent depth play for deep fantasy leagues in the past and he put up 28 points in the regular season. His problem is the higher standards at center as opposed to defenseman.
