Lee tallies twice as Islanders top Devils, 4-2

Anders Lee netted two goals and Jaroslav Halak stood tall with 37 saves as the Islanders rolled through the Devils on the road, 4-2

  • 03:42 •

The New York Islanders briefly extended their playoff hopes on Saturday night with a 4-2 win over the New Jersey Devils, but they were mathematically eliminated shortly after, as the Toronto Maple Leafs clinched a playoff spot with a win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The Islanders (92 points) can not catch the Maple Leafs (95 points) and will play the final game of their season on Sunday against the Ottawa Senators. It was a disappointing result, especially in light of a five-game winning streak and a valiant push from a team that was last in the Eastern Conference back in late January.

Five points back of the Toronto Maple Leafs (93 points) and six back of the Ottawa Senators (94) with three games to play, the Isles need both teams to lose in regulation.
