Although the Islanders were one of the worst shorthanded teams for most of the season, they finished on a strong note.

The Islanders killed 39 of their final 42 penalties over their final 18 games. "It's not much difference," Nikolay Kulemin said. "Doing what we've been doing, maybe doing it a little bit better. We try to be a little more active. But we try that all year. It's just working now." The Islanders need to hope it keeps working because their first round opponent, the Washington Capitals, has the best power play in the league.

Nikolay Kulemin scored the only Islanders goal Tuesday as the team was upended by Chicago by a score of 4-1.

Kulemin's goal came late in the third period after the outcome had already been decided so it accomplished little more than ruining Corey Crawford's shutout bid. Formerly a 30-goal scorer with Toronto, the Islanders' winger now serves as a depth forward with his new club.
