The Islanders (86 points) start the day six points back of the Boston Bruins (92 points) for the second Wild Card in the Eastern Conference with four games remaining.
The Islanders need to win out their games and get some help from the Bruins, Ottawa Senators (92 points) and Tampa Bay Lightning (88 points). The Bruins and Lightning play each other on Tuesday night, so one team will get points regardless, while the Senators wrap up a home-and-home set with the Detroit Red Wings. Ottawa earned a point in a 5-4 shootout loss on Monday night.
