The New York Islanders will find themselves in eighth place in the Eastern Conference at the end of Tuesday night with either a victory or a post-regulation loss to the Winnipeg Jets at Nassau Coliseum.
The Islanders begin play Tuesday in ninth, but have 37 points, tied with the eighth-place New York Rangers, who aren't in action again until Wednesday.
The Jets hold down the third seed by virtue of leading the Southeast Division, but they've lost three straight and are four points ahead of the Carolina Hurricanes and Washington Capitals, who face each other Tuesday.

Evander Kane - Olli Jokinen - Antti Miettinen
Andrew Ladd - Bryan Little - Blake Wheeler
Eric Tangradi - Kyle Wellwood - Nik Antropov
Patrice Cormier - Alex Burmistrov - Chris Thorburn
Ron Hainsey - Zach Bogosian
