Semyon Varlamov stopped 30 of 32 shots against to help the Islanders cruise past the Blue Jackets 5-2.

Fantasy Impact: Varlamov gets back to back wins over the Blue Jackets and improves to 8-13-2 on the season. With Sorokin out the last three games and possibly more the Islanders backup is looking to take advantage of the opportunity while it lasts.

Fantasy Impact: Barzal has had multiple points in back to back games against Columbus this week and is now up to 46 points in 57 games played this season. He has been an average fantasy player this season as the Islanders continue to struggle on offense.

Fantasy Impact: It's a big blow for the Islanders, who have leaned heavily on Pulock to this point. He has been arguably their best defenseman. Make sure to remove him from your starting lineups for the near future.

Pageau contributed one goal and kicked in an assist on Brock Nelson's fourth goal to help New York beat Montreal 6-2.

Fantasy Impact: His first goal of the season came near the end of the second period. So far, he has been left off the Islanders' power play lines which limits his points upside. He does help the hits category and is worth a look in deeper leagues.

Anthony Beauvillier had three assist on Thursday in a 6-2 win over the Montreal Canadiens.

Fantasy Impact: Beauvillier has five points in the last five games and looks to have great chemistry with Brock Nelson.

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: 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.

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.
