For the third time in the past week, the New York Islanders were shutout in a game. They now have six goals in the last five games.

The New York Islanders picked the absolute worst time for their offense to go MIA. With just five games remaining on the season, and playoff positioning on the line, the Islanders offense has been nonexistent.

Last night, the team was shutout for the third time in a seven day period and the third time in five games. Scoring was an issue for the Islanders all year but it was never this bad. Nobody is able to get anything to go in during this stretch and now it’s costing them playoff positioning.

The Isles were in first place for a majority of the past few months, until this recent dip in production. With last night’s brutal effort in a 4-0 loss, they now dropped to third place in the Metropolitan Division and have lost home-ice advantage all together with.

As Mitch kindly mentioned yesterday, the game against the Blue Jackets could’ve been a four-point swing. Instead, it was the Islanders who were in the loss column dropping further back in the Metropolitan Division.

This team has been fairly mediocre for a while now, with a 9-9-1 record in their last 19 games. If the Isles don’t figure this thing out this magical season could come to an end very quick come playoff time.
