Islanders, Hurricanes hoping to avoid last place

NEW YORK -- For the first few weeks of 2018, a jam-packed Metropolitan Division offered hope to the New York Islanders and Carolina Hurricanes that their final regular season game against each other would carry major playoff implications.

Instead, untimely slumps by the Islanders and Hurricanes ensure they'll be playing for nothing other than the chance to avoid last place Sunday, when New York hosts Carolina at Barclays Center.

Both teams absorbed losses in their most recent games. The Islanders fell to the Washington Capitals for the second time in as many nights Friday 6-3. The Hurricanes dropped their third straight Saturday, when the visiting Philadelphia Flyers scored four times in the third period, including three unanswered goals over the final 12 minutes to earn a come-from-behind 4-2 victory.
