Newsday: Islanders look to create separation in standings as they host Canadiens
The Islanders again have a chance to add some separation between themselves and a team chasing them in the Eastern Conference standings.
They host the Canadiens on Thursday night at NYCB Live's Nassau Coliseum to conclude a stretch of eight of nine games at home. On Monday night, the Islanders dented the Blue Jackets' playoff pursuit with a 2-0 win against their Metropolitan Division rival.
The second-place Islanders are trying to keep pace with the Capitals, who have played one extra game, and lead by two points in the division as they play at Philadelphia on Thursday night.
Elite Sports NY: New York Islanders looking to keep up their refined play against Montreal
The New York Islanders earned a much-needed two points against Columbus and are looking to keep playing "Islanders hockey" the rest of the season.
Cal Clutterbuck phrased it best in his post-game interview with Cory Wright:
"I think that's what we needed to get out of the little rut we were in," CAL CLUTTERBUCK said. "We just needed someone coming in who is hungry and ready to play and who forces us to elevate our level. I think we elevated our level."
Hungry is an understatement for a desperate Blue Jackets team who went "all-in" this past trade deadline.
