NY Islanders secure victory against Arizona Coyotes with a crucial power-play goal

In Tuesday night’s matchup, the New York Islanders secured a 1-0 victory against the Arizona Coyotes, with Mathew Barzal netting a power-play goal during the second period. Ilya Sorokin, in his first shutout of the season, made an impressive 14 saves to ensure the Islanders’ success. Noah Dobson and Kyle Palmieri contributed to the lone goal with assists in what marked the Islanders’ second consecutive win.

Anders Lee, the Islanders’ captain, praised their performance in the offensive zone, emphasizing the effectiveness of their forecheck. He noted that when they established a strong presence in the offensive zone, it made it challenging for their opponents to generate opportunities. Lee acknowledged that the Islanders had experienced situations where they were hemmed into their own zone and recognized the difficulty of creating scoring chances in such circumstances.

Karel Vejmelka, with 30 saves, put up a solid effort for the Arizona Coyotes, despite their second consecutive loss. The Coyotes are set to face the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night and will then host their home opener on Saturday against the Anaheim Ducks.
