No. 25:  New York Islanders

Previous:  29th

Season Record:  11-11-5

The Islanders have won five of their last seven games, and came away with a point in another one.  Their six-game point streak was snapped when they lost to the Columbus Blue Jackets 6-2 Saturday night.

They’ve also gone nine straight games without allowing a power play goal, so they have a few things to be positive about.  They play the Washington Capitals tonight.
