Which star is the biggest winner from the Islanders/Rangers brawl?
When it comes to who’s going to win the Islanders-Rangers hockey battle, there’s a lot of debate.
There are fans who think Andrew Ladd is going to be a superstar, while Islanders fans think Ladd should be a top-six forward.
There’s also a lot more debate than the Islanders fans have a right to, because they’ve been through two of the most contentious playoff series in franchise history.
The Islanders have the better record and the best road record, so the two teams should be able to lock up their playoff spots and even their divisional series.
So it’s a big deal if either team is able to win, but who is going in the end?
That’s the whole point of the game.
There is no such thing as a winner or loser in the NHL.
In the end, the loser has to pay the consequences.
But it’s not like this series is anything but a nailbiter.
There will be a lot riding on how the series plays out and the outcome of the series.
The Isles are riding a nine-game winning streak that includes four wins in the first five games of the Eastern Conference semifinals.
The Rangers are riding their nine-match winning streak, and the Islanders are riding theirs, too.
So let’s look at the standings for the two divisions and see how the Islanders’ and Rangers’ playoff chances compare.
The standings for each division The Islanders currently sit fourth in the Atlantic Division at 27-18-6, while the Rangers sit second at 26-22-6.
The teams have played six games, and both have played a total of four games.
The New York Islanders currently hold a three-game lead over the Rangers in the Eastern Division.
New York’s three wins in their last five games have all come on the road, and they’ve outscored their opponents by a combined 12 goals over the last three games.
They’re currently riding a five-game road winning streak and have outscaled their opponents in their three home games, a stretch that started in Boston and ended in Toronto.
The last time the Isles faced the Rangers, they were swept by the Maple Leafs in a three game series in the third round of the playoffs.
They’ve won three of their last four games, but that series ended with the Rangers holding a three goal lead at 4-3.

However, they have played only four games in their past four games and are currently sitting at three points ahead of the Rangers.
New Yorkers are riding an eight-game home winning streak dating back to their series with Boston, and currently hold the tiebreaker over the Islanders, as they are in fifth place in the East.
The Washington Capitals currently hold an eight point lead on the Islanders in the Metropolitan Division, and have played five games over the past two days.
The Capitals have only played three games, however, and are still four points ahead.
However the Islanders have a two-game advantage over the Capitals and are riding the tiebreakers over the Isles.
The Los Angeles Kings currently hold one point in the Central Division, but they’re riding a six-game unbeaten streak over New York.
They currently hold two games in hand on the Isles, however.
The Kings have only been on the ice for one game, but have won three straight games.

They’ll then return to action on Friday.

On the West coast, the Islanders face off against the Anaheim Ducks on Friday, and play the St. Louis Blues on Saturday.
Then, the Ducks play the Calgary Flames on Sunday.
If the Rangers are to have a chance of advancing to the conference finals, they’ll have to go up against the Los Angeles Sharks in
