No. 25: New York Islanders

Previous: No. 27

Record: 19-17-9 (47 points)

New York’s slight rise in the rankings doesn’t have as much to do with it playing well as it does with other teams faring poorly. Though the Isles have responded a bit to Doug Weight taking over behind the bench, winning two of three games and getting a point out of the third. It at least pulled them out of the East basement (for now).
