The ’78-’79 New York Islanders were the 8th seed in the inaugural Ultimate NHL Playoff. They had a bye in the First Round before they defeated the 25th-seeded ’05-’06 Ottawa Senators in five games in the Second Round. However, their tournament came to an end in the Third Round when they lost in six games to the hated, 9th-seeded ’71-’72 New York Rangers. Then, in the Second Annual UNP, the ’81-’82 New York Islanders failed to even win a series as they lost in the Second Round after having a First Round bye to the 25th-seeded ’83-’84 Washington Capitals.

Players to Watch:

  • F – Bryan Trottier – Simply selected the top three in scoring in the franchises history, but all three are some of the best to ever play the game. Trottier posted 1,353 points in 1,123 games as an Islander.
  • F – Mike Bossy – One of the best goal scorers ever finished with 1,126 points in just 752 games for the Islanders and scored 573 goals.
  • D – Denis Potvin – Only Trottier posted more assists in an Islanders jersey. Potvin finished his career with 310 goals, 752 assists and 1,052 points in 1,060 games.

The tournament results will be posted on the next weekday at 1 pm EST!
