Barzal scores late winner as Islanders level Bruins

UNIONDALE, NY – Mathew Barzal broke a tie late in the third period and the New York Islanders beat the Boston Bruins 4-1 Saturday night to tie the second-round playoff series at two games apiece.

Kyle Palmieri, Casey Cizikas and Jean-Gabriel Pageau also scored for New York and Semyon Varlamov stopped 28 shots.

David Krejci scored for Boston and Tuukka Rask finished with 30 saves.

Game 5 is Monday night in Boston, and Game 6 is at the Nassau Coliseum on Wednesday night.

With the score tied 1-1 after two periods, New York’s Ryan Pulock fired a shot to the chest from Rask just over 6 minutes into the third, and the goalkeeper covered the rebound. Varlamov stopped a slap shot from Connor Clifton at 8 1/2 minutes into the period, and one from David Pastrnak with 8:15 left.

The Islanders took the lead when Scott Mayfield’s shot was redirected and deflected from Charlie McAvoy to the front and Barzal hit the puck in the air and passed Rask with 6:57 left. Barzal scored for the second straight game after not scoring in the first eight games of the postseason.

Boston sent Rask out for an additional skater with 1:12 to play. Cizikas, who had the overtime goal in Game 2, sealed it with a nicer void 9 seconds later, and Pageau added one with 3 seconds to go.

Boston scored first for the third straight game. With Matt Martin out for holding on to put the Bruins on their second power play, Krejci rebounded a shot from Pastrnak at 3:57 of the second. The puck was loose in front and it reached Krejci on the right side and quickly put it on.

The Islanders defied the goalie interference, but held his ground after a review, putting the Bruins on another power play.

New York tied the score shortly after the penalty expired. Barzal skated back and forth across the boards on the right as he was defended by Curtis Lazar, then, while skating behind the net, he sent a pass in front of Palmieri, who quickly beat Rask at 6:38. Palmieri, who scored two goals in 17 games after being acquired from New Jersey at the trade deadline, scored his fifth of the postseason.

Rask had a stellar save on a try near Brock Nelson midway through the intermission to keep the score level.

Barzal was on the ice for several minutes after being cut by Krejci, putting the islanders on their first power play of the game with just under 9 minutes to go. New York managed just two shots on goal during the lead.

The Bruins out-shot the Islanders 11-7 in a fast-paced, physical first period.

Boston’s Mayfield and Taylor Hall dropped their gloves and exchanged blows in 7 1/2 minutes into the game. Both players received significant penalties for the fight. There was more shoving and shoving two minutes later after Barzal was whistled for a high stick in anticipation of a punch from Lazar. In the skirmish, Matt Martin of New York and Jarred Tinordi of the Bruins also traded blows.

New York’s best goal-scoring opportunity of the period came when Anthony Beauvillier had a chance to drive up front, but Rask denied it in a save with about 5 minutes to go.

Pastrnak had an open net from the left circle two minutes later, but fired a shot to the right post and Varlamov pounced on the rebound.

BRUINS LINE

D Brandon Carlo missed the game after leaving Game 3 early in the third period following a hard hit from Cal Clutterbuck of the Islanders. Tinordi took Carlo’s place in the lineup and started the game in a third-line pair with Clifton. It was Tinordi’s first game in the series. Jeremy Lauzon went on to the second pair with Mike Reilly. Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said he hoped to mix up his pairs throughout the game.

STAR GOALKEEPER

The series has featured sharp goalkeeping play on both sides. Varlamov has stopped 106 of 112 shots in three games after replacing Ilya Sorokin. Rask has 113 saves on 122 shots in all four games.

UPLOAD THE LIST

Krejci’s goal was the 41st of his career in the postseason, breaking a tie with John Bucyk and moving to sole possession of sixth place on the franchise list.
