The New York Islanders have been able to overcome some rough performances at home by posting one of the league's best road records, which bodes well for a playoff-hopeful team set to finish the regular season with an extended road trip.
Lately, though, they've been playing well no matter the venue.
New York looks to conclude its home slate by earning at least a point in an eighth consecutive game overall as it hosts the last-place Florida Panthers on Tuesday night.
The surprising Islanders (21-16-5) are in position to qualify for the postseason for the first time since 2006-07. They currently hold the Eastern Conference's seventh seed, one point better than the eighth-place New York Rangers.
Despite suffering a 1-0 overtime loss at home to the Rangers on Saturday, New York has gone 5-0-2 in its last seven.
"Get the point, move on," said John Tavares, whose 24 goals are among the league leaders. "We've got our last home game on Tuesday and some more big games coming up."
