Wow, this completely surprised me. I checked out the standings at nhl.com for the first time in a loong time and the difference between 13th place and 6th place in the east, is 1 point. 1 point! that's crazy. if everything goes the Islanders way today, they could potentially jump from 13th in the conference to 6th in the conference. basically just like that. Wild stuff, what a close race and if the rangers keep this winless rune going, it will be hard to battle back.
