Barzal sparks offense as Islanders advance past Panthers

TORONTO (AP) Mathew Barzal can appreciate how the New York Islanders' identity is built around being defensively sound.

In centering New York's top line, Barzal also knows it's his role to contribute on offense, too.

Acknowledging it took him a few games to find a groove following the NHL's 4 1/2 month coronavirus-forced pause, Barzal was pleased to finally contribute at both ends in a 5-1 preliminary round series-clinching win over the Florida Panthers on Friday.
