The Islanders have become insignificant on the national stage.

Playing two games in three weeks will do that for you. It goes from pre-season Stanley Cup qualifiers to those living at the bottom of the division.

Now they’re back with a game against the Devils on Thursday night – cutting their fingers and waiting for the Devils ’COVID-19 test results – and they’re facing their best chance of raising the charge. With no further changes to the schedule, the Islanders will play 11 games three weeks before the All-Star break, 10 games at home, two back games and no more than two days off between games. by taking.

The Islanders have been healthy since the beginning of November, with key player Ryan Pulok still missing. There are games that will help close the 14-point gap between the Bruins, the last wild team on Wednesday morning. They’ve had a rest – a lot of rest – and have scored quietly in the last four games, a situation that can’t be ignored when the last four games have lasted almost a month.

The Islanders are entering a phase that will help change the season.

And it’s still predicted that the list will be pretty good, without barely starting their season, events are starting to go upside down and through no fault of their own. The Islanders were unable to control their 13-game journey to start the year, and the COVID-19 epidemic forced them to sit on the AHL Bridgeport roster for a month at the UBS Arena or league. But they can control the continuation of frustration.

“I think just focus on the game,” head coach Barry Trots said this week. “I know it’s a bit of a cliché, but you know you can’t win every game if you have that attitude. You just have to focus on the opponent in front of you. Just start climbing. It’s coming soon. “

Trots won’t stay on the bench on Thursday after entering the COVID protocol on Tuesday afternoon – an island-specific misfortune this year – but they did win the game against Trotz and Lane Lambert.

“In the last game, we weren’t too worried,” Josh Bailey said, referring to Lambert’s New Year’s win over the Oilers. “We knew Lane would do a good job, just like he did. We didn’t think much of it. “

For the astonishing amount of setbacks on the way to the islands, they did a great job of not thinking about it and at least focusing their attention while the cameras were moving.

“If someone tells me I have to play a game that day, I’ll show up and I’m ready to play it,” Kal Klutterbach said at the start of the final closing.

This attitude has a positive effect on a group full of veterans. If the Islanders can’t win, it doesn’t matter.

Over the next 10 days, they possessed the devils, up to their third-row goalkeeper; Two games against Flyers, five defeats in a row; and historically bad Arizona Coyotes. This would be a good place to start.

Semyon Varlamov is 40th from the New York Islanders, Sebastian Aho is 25th, Zdeno Chara is 33rd from the New York Islanders and Kyle Palmieri is 21st from the New York Islanders in the second half. protected the net.  .  NY Post in home photo
The Islanders have a big difference in the tournament schedule.

A winning streak may not be enough to win the islands in the post-season. Despite the games at hand, they have a big gap, and mass models tie the playoff chances by about 10 percent. It’s nothing. But a steep hill that can be climbed.

“We had a great time here to prepare for the rest of the year,” Anders Lee said Tuesday.

The truth of these words will be tested. And fast.
