17. New York Islanders

Previous: No. 17

Record: 35-28-12 (82 points)

With the second wild card spot in the Eastern Conference still wide open, the Islanders will look to continue their resurgence. John Tavares continues to have another solid season while Andrew Ladd is finally finding his scoring touch since being acquired by the Islanders. However, the 2-1 loss to Boston really hurt the chances of the playoff-hopeful Islanders.
