Mathew Barzal is on his way back to his Juniors team in Seattle. J-F Berube is still rotating between the press box and the bench, as the Islanders' three goaltender boondoggle continues to infuriate both fans and the goalies involved in the situation alike. Sort of makes you feel like P.A. Pareanteau could have easily had a spot on this team had the Isles exercised a little more foresight.
To make matters worse, Parenteau notched his fifth goal of the season on Tuesday night, pulling him into a tie for the Devils' team lead with Taylor Hall. With plenty of space, Parenteau roofed a wicked wrister for his sixth point of the season. That would be good enough to tie him for first in goals and sixth in overall scoring on the Islanders. What's more, he's playing to a 55.5 Corsi For and 55.4 Fenwick For through 12 games this season, an admittedly small sample size, but marks that put him on pace for the best possession metrics in his career.
