Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the NY Post,
To have any chance at securing the last playoff berth, the Isles continue to need everything to fall into place for them.
If they beat the Flyers, they must have the Maple Leafs defeat the Canadiens in Toronto tonight. Should that happen, the Islanders would control their own destiny, with just a victory over the Devils between them and the postseason. And since the Devils have virtually nothing to play for, the Isles could have a better shot than normal.
Still, a Montreal win would spoil any hope the Isles have.
“It’s tough relying on other teams,” said Blake. “But the fact that we’re playing games that matter this late in the year is great.”
Especially for goalie Wade Dubielewicz, who has gone from an almost unknown third-stringer to one of the keys to the Islanders’ success in little more than a week.
