The trade deadline has passed, and the final stretch of the NHL’s regular season is underway. The Metro division is incredibly tight with just 3 points separating the 3rd place and 6th place teams. The Islanders currently hold the first wild card spot in the East, while the Rangers sit six points out of the second wild card in the East.

New York Rangers

Despite an 8-2-0 record in their last ten games, the hot streak that the Rangers are on is bound to come to an end shortly. They traded one of their top defenders, Brady Skjei, to the Carolina Hurricanes, one day after forward Pavel Buchnevich and their top young goaltender Igor Shesterkin were injured in a car accident. Despite retaining and extending their star forward Chris Kreider for the next seven years, the Rangers’ prospects for the rest of 2020 aren’t bright, and they may have just entered the Derniere for Lafreniere sweepstakes.

New York Islanders

The Islanders currently hold the top wild card spot in the east and are just four points out of second in the Metro and six points out of first. They added forward Jean-Gabriel Pageau (albeit for an insane price) to a roster that struggles to score in bunches and relies mostly on their strong defensive systems to win games. Without subtracting a roster player in the deal, they are now primed to make a run up the standings and position themselves against one of the top teams in the East in the first round of the playoffs.

Rangers & Islanders Facts

1. Artemi Panarin has seven points in his last five games.

2. Newly acquired Islander Pageau has six points in his last five games, but none in his last two.

3. NYI Semyon Varlamov has won his last two starts, allowing just one goal in each.
