New York and Buffalo have split the first two of a three-game season series, as the Islanders are looking to end the regular season on a winning note. The guys are 21-13-5 in their final game of the regular season and 19-16-4 in their final road game of the season.

Islanders Recap:

John Tavares scored his 28th goal of the season and Kevil Poulin stopped 28-of-30 shots, but the Islanders fell 2-1 to the Philadelphia Flyers on 4/25. The loss marks the Islanders first regular season defeat since March 30 at Pittsburgh.

Still Road Warriors:

The New York Islanders are still on pace for the best road winning percentage in franchise history. A point tonight will help the guys make history in making this year the best point percentage on the road.
