You've got to figure, "Well, the Isles have played well on the road, compared to at home". BUT, 4 of these 5 teams could very well be in the playoff race and it could be quite the playoff game atmosphere in those buildings...you never know what could happen. Isles have points in 6 of their last 7 games (5-1-1), so it's definitely a good trend.
It's actually points in 7 out of the last 8 (5-1-2), a very good run. The only loss on a back to back game vs the Pens. 11-8-1 remaining should get us in. 12-7-1 could snag the 6th seed.

Speaking of back to backs - The Isles have one on April 2nd vs the Jets (The Devils the night before) and not another one until the final game of the year - against Buffalo on Friday, April 26th.

That's not bad, but you know that last game is going to have a lot of meaning (hopefully) and it sucks to have it be on limited rest. Hopefully Buffalo will be out of it and it won't be a playoff game for them.

edit: wanted to check the Sabres schedule and see if they also have us on a BTB...nope. Their prior game is on Monday, so they'll have 4 days of rest.
