The New York Rangers 45-31-6 record was good enough to earn them 96 points and second in the Metropolitan Division. This put them in the playoffs for the fourth straight season and their eighth appearance in the last nine seasons. However, this is the first season the Rangers will be in the playoffs under new head coach, Alain Vigneault.

It's not often you see a team skate off to a standing ovation, but that's what went down Saturday night in the final Islanders game to be played at the Nassau Coliseum. They gave the fans one heck of a show, leading the Penguins 3-2 14:44 into the 3rd before a Paul Martin shot found the back of the net and sent the game to Overtime. The Isles continued the offensive, as they had all game, but it was a chance off the stick of a Penguin, Brooks Orpik, that ended the game 4-3 and the series 4-2.
