The New York Islanders are set to face the Florida Panthers on Thursday night at 8PM in Florida  in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs after being handed a 5-2 defeat in their final game of the regular season last night at the Barclays Center. The Islanders jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead courtesy of first period goals from Nikolay Kulemin and Matt Martin, but that would be all the scoring on the evening for the Blue and Orange.

Although both teams played without some of their better offensive players, there was no shortage of offense to end the regular season. A four-goal first period set the pace via mutually porous defenses through 20 minutes. Five unanswered goals proved to be too much to overcome for the Islanders, as they dropped the final game of the regular season 5-2 to the Philadelphia Flyers.

Scott Mayfield and Alan Quine each tallied their first NHL goal, but it was not enough for the purposely short-handed Islanders, who were resting many regulars, to take down the Buffalo Sabres. They fell to Matt Moulson and the Sabres 4-3 in overtime at Barclays Center Saturday night. Sabres’ captain Brian Gionta registered his second goal of the evening just past the halfway point of overtime to close out Buffalo’s season on a high note.

Islanders-Rangers games generally have a lot behind them. Sometimes it’s just for pride, other times it means big points in the standings, but these rivalry games give fans, media, and even players those goosebumps starting from the morning of the game. Yet, this final regular season meeting was a tad different — both squads already clinched a playoff spot, and each had a slim chance of hosting a first-round series. Regardless.
