Video: Ryan Pulock scores first Islanders playoff goal at Barclays Center in Brooklyn

New, comments

Hey man, nice shot!

Ryan Pulock scored the first New York Islanders goal at Barclays Center again.

It's not quite officially so -- these things tend to be recorded only for regular season games -- but the man who scored their first goal in a preseason game in Brooklyn was also the man to score their first playoff goal there Sunday night in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference Round 1 series with the Florida Panthers.

(His preseason goal last year was notable because it took a couple of years...the Isles' first exhibition game in Brooklyn the previous year was a shutout loss.)

The playoff goal came on a vicious one-time blast from the point, the kind of shot Pulock has been known for since before his draft day. It was a big one as it cut the Isles deficit to 2-1 in the second period on a five-on-three power play, just minutes after they were an offside video review away from trailing 3-0.

Congratulations to Ryan Pulock, the Daughin, Manitoba-born former Brandon Wheat Kings star. May there be many more playoff blasts like that one.
