There's nothing like playoff hockey, and there's nothing more nerve-wracking or exhilarating than games that go into sudden death. In the 50 years of New York Islanders hockey, the team has been on the plus side of some of the most memorable post-season overtimes in NHL history.
The Islanders have the best winning percentage (.645) in NHL history in Stanley Cup Playoff games that go to overtime with 40 wins against 22 losses for a winning percentage of .645. New York has been even better on the road (20-9) than they have been at home (20-13).
