Islanders fight for home-ice advantage in matchup vs. Devils

The New York Islanders are going to the playoffs, but a poorly timed slide likely will cost them home-ice advantage.

With two games remaining, the Islanders are fourth in the East Division and hope they can reverse some of their recent struggles Saturday night when they host the New Jersey Devils in their final regular-season game at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, N.Y.

The Islanders (31-17-6, 68 points) are three points behind the third-place Boston Bruins, who have three games remaining and host the New York Rangers on Saturday afternoon. The Islanders could be eliminated from catching the second-place Washington Capitals, who will take a five-point lead into their Friday night game with the Philadelphia Flyers.
