New York Islanders Falling Behind


Jack Endress, Sports

The New York Islanders are falling behind in their division, dropping from 3rd to being tied for 5th in less than a week. Islanders rivals, the New York Rangers, have taken 3rd and made the Islanders drop down. The Washington Capitals tied the Islanders to keep pressure on them for 5th place. 4th is where the Islanders have to be to make the playoffs and make the wild card or the division leaders. Being 2 points behind the Philadelphia Flyers does not help; they have a very solid team that will score lots of goals. The Islanders will have to step it up a knock to make it to the playoffs or even win the Stanley cup.
