Why the Islanders WON’T Make the Playoffs
The Islanders claimed 1 point in their last 5 games. Why are we in a slump at the WORST possible time? The Washington Capitals recently clinched a spot in the playoffs, initiating the playoff race. The Islanders are competing with the Maple Leafs and the Lightning. The Maple Leafs are looking good in the race for the final Wild Card Spot. They have a game in hand, along with a point in hand. The Lightning have equal games with the Isles, but one less point. The Islanders need to snap out of this slump, or else they will not make the playoffs. The Islanders next game is against the Rangers, in which the Islanders are very good against. A big win can snap the Islanders out of the slump they are currently in.
With the Islanders current goalie situation, I think it is unlikely the Islanders will get out of their current slump.
