Isles Fight to the End

Via: New York Newsday

'The Islanders faced an injury-depleted Sabres lineup that did not have top-liners Stu Barnes (concussion) and J.P. Dumont (separated clavicle), but still put up a determined fight. The Islanders (86 points) wound up getting more out of the victory, however, because they eliminated the Sabres as a threat to them in the standings.'
