The New York Islanders play their final game of the season on Sunday evening. 

Despite winning their season-high fifth straight game on Saturday in New Jersey, the Islanders were eliminated from the postseason, as Toronto clinched a playoff spot with a win over Pittsburgh. 

The Islanders made a valiant run at the postseason considering the team was last in the Eastern Conference in late January, but in the end they'll fall just short. The Isles had made the playoffs for two straight seasons and in three of their last four before this year. 

It's not much of a consolation, but they'll look to end their season on a winning note, looking for a sixth straight win on Fan Appreciation Night at Barclays Center.
