Isles Gameday Bits: Final Road Trip Begins in Toronto

Playoffs comin'. - USA TODAY Sports

Five more games. All on the road. This is doable.

The New York Islanders are in Toronto today, the first stop on their five-game road string to finish out the season and, Dubie willing, seal a playoff spot for the first time since 2007.

Also seeking to lock one of those up for the first time in ages? Tonight's opponent, the Toronto Reimer & the Maple Leafs.

Just four games in the league last night, none of them impacting the Isles playoff chase much, though Buffalo's win in Boston pulled them to within two points of eighth place in the East (though they have just four games left). The cool thing about that game was the pregame tributes and crowd-sung anthem, viewable at TSN here or in the NHL.com links here. Both teams saluted the fans after the game.

Some (mostly) Islanders links:

How wild would it be if the Isles, Leafs, Wild and Blue Jackets all made the playoffs this year? (Yeah yeah, insert your lockout asterisks over there.)
