  • Panthers' Aleksander Barkov: Three points in wild OT win

    Barkov scored a goal and two assists in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Bruins.

    After setting up Brandon Montour for a goal in the second period, Barkov forced OT by beating Jeremy Swayman with only three seconds left in the third. Barkov then found Sam Reinhart for a one-timer just 17 seconds into the extra frame to complete the comeback. Barkov extended his point streak to 11 games in the process, a blistering stretch that has seen the 27-year-old pile up five goals and 17 points.

  • Panthers' Aleksander Barkov: Six-game, nine-point streak

    Barkov had two assists in a 6-2 win over the Canadiens on Thursday. Both came on the power play.

    Barkov extended his point streak to six games and nine points (three goals, six assists) and has points in eight of his last nine contests (12). Five of the nine points on his current streak have come with the man advantage and another came while shorthanded.

  • Panthers' Aleksander Barkov: Two points in OT loss

    Barkov scored a power-play goal and added a short-handed assist in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Maple Leafs.

    Both points came in the first 22 minutes of play as Florida jumped out to a 4-2 lead, but the team's offense dried up after that. Barkov extended his point streak to five games with the performance, and in 11 games since returning from a lower-body injury, the 27-year-old star has six goals and 15 points, with about half of that production (three goals, five helpers) coming on the power play.

  • Panthers' Aleksander Barkov: Supplies power-play helper

    Barkov notched a power-play assist, two hits and a minus-3 rating in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Barkov helped out on a Sam Reinhart tally in the second period. The 27-year-old Barkov has a goal and five helpers over his last five contests, with three of those assists coming on the power play. For the season, the star center is up to 33 points (16 on the power play), 98 shots on net, 23 blocked shots and a plus-5 rating through 33 appearances.

  • Panthers' Aleksander Barkov: Pair of points in win

    Barkov scored a goal on three shots, added an assist, blocked two shots and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Avalanche.

    Barkov has produced three multi-point efforts over his last seven contests, recording four goals and six helpers in that span. The 27-year-old is up to 10 tallies, 32 points (15 on the power play), 97 shots on net and a plus-8 rating in 32 outings this season. A point-per-game pace is actually a bit low for the star center -- he's capable of more, but injuries and illness have made it hard for him to stay consistently in the lineup over the last two months.

  • Panthers' Aleksander Barkov: Records two helpers Friday

    Barkov registered two assists in Florida's 3-2 win against Detroit on Friday.

    Both of Barkov's assists were recorded during Florida power plays. The 27-year-old has nine goals and 30 points in 30 contests this season, including 15 points with the man advantage. Barkov had been held to an assist in his previous three games, but it looks like he's shaken off that minor slump.

  • Panthers' Aleksander Barkov: Offensive explosion in return

    Barkov (lower body) returned to action Thursday with three goals and two assists in a 7-2 win over Montreal.

    Well, now we know how to spell domination. It's B-A-R-K-O-V. He got all three goals in the first, including one on the power play; the third stood as the winner. Then Barkov got to work orchestrating action on the the power play, dishing to set up two goals by Matthew Tkachuk. Sure, it was against the porous Canadiens, but this is the kind of performance the Panthers need to kick-start a strong second half. Florida went 0-3-0 during Barkov's absence. Get him into your lineup and then pray he stays healthy because he's a force when he's on the ice.

  • Panthers' Aleksander Barkov: Remains iffy against Montreal

    Coach Paul Maurice is hopeful Barkov (lower body) will be available for Thursday's game versus the Canadiens.

    Barkov will be reevaluated following Thursday's morning skate, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him end up as a game-time decision against Montreal. Check back for confirmation on the 27-year-old pivot's status prior to puck drop against the Canadiens.

  • Panthers' Aleksander Barkov: Skates in non-contact jersey

    Barkov (lower body) was wearing a non-contact jersey during Tuesday's practice, per Katie Engleson of Bally Sports Florida.

    Barkov might be cleared for contact in time for Wednesday's practice though. Panthers coach Paul Maurice hasn't ruled him out for Thursday's game against Montreal, but they'll have a better idea about his availability Wednesday. Barkov was last in the lineup on Dec. 17.

  • Panthers' Aleksander Barkov: Likely out through break

    Barkov (lower body) isn't expected to return before the NHL's upcoming holiday break, Colby Guy of Florida Hockey Now reports.

    That means Barkov will almost certainly miss Wednesday's game versus New Jersey and Friday's game against the Islanders at a minimum. In the likely event that ends up being the case, Barkov will have to set his sights on making his return to action Dec. 29 against the Canadiens.

    Barkov scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Both points came in the second period, as the Panthers pulled away after grabbing a 1-0 lead in the first.

    Barkov (pneumonia) had one assist and won 11 of 19 face-offs (58 percent) in 17:12 of ice time Thursday in a 5-1 win over the Red Wings.

    He felt great, but it did take a bit for him to get his legs back. Barkov immediately elevates the Panthers' game and helps them balance their lines more effectively. Get him back in there.

    Barkov (illness) will not be in Tuesday's lineup against Winnipeg, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Barkov is "getting close" to returning but he'll miss his sixth consecutive game Tuesday. The 27-year-old looked to be finding his groove offensively with seven points in his last four appearances. He could be back as early as Thursday against Detroit.
