The New York Islanders win in a shootout over New Jersey, landing the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference on the last day of the season. More later. (The Leafs Lunch show on AM640 radio should be quite entertaining Monday, wouldn’t you say?)
Update 6:57pm EDT:
The win triggered a wild on-ice celebration by the Islanders who were seemingly out of the Stanley Cup hunt one week ago. They regrouped in front of third-string goalie Wade Dubielewicz to edge out the Toronto Maple Leafs for the last playoff berth to be decided on the final day of the regular season.
Toronto finished its season Saturday night with a 6-5 win over the Montreal Canadiens. The Maple Leafs had 91 points, one more than the Islanders.
The Islanders mission was simple: win, and they were in the playoffs and would face the top-seeded Buffalo Sabres.
