Pens gunning for Metro lead, Isles grasping at playoff spot

PITTSBURGH -- With three teams already over 100 points, the biggest question in the Metropolitan Division these days seems to be whether the Pittsburgh Penguins, Washington Capitals or Columbus Blue Jackets will win the Presidents' Trophy as the NHL's top regular-season team and claim home-ice advantage for the postseason.

For the New York Islanders, the only relevant query is whether they will qualify for the postseason.

With 80 points and 10 games remaining, the Islanders sit two points behind the Boston Bruins for the final wild-card seeding in the Eastern Conference. In addition to having two games in hand on the Bruins, the Islanders have three sets of back-to-back contests in the season's final three weeks, including contests in Pittsburgh on Friday and at Barclays Center against the Bruins on Saturday.
