Surprising contenders face off as Isles visit Flames

With 35 wins in the 2017-18 season, the New York Islanders finished 17 points out of a playoff spot.

With 35 wins through only 58 games this season, the Islanders (35-17-6, 76 points) find themselves one of the NHL's biggest surprises, sitting in first place in the Metropolitan Division.

"It's a complete opposite. If you look at our defensive game from last year to this year and just the way we find a way to win tight games compared to last year," defenseman Ryan Pulock told the team's website. "When you're comfortable in those positions, it makes it a lot easier. Over the last 30-40 games, we've been comfortable in those tight spots, and just have guys step up and find a way to get the job done."
