The New York Islanders all but secured their spot in the playoffs over the weekend by beating a pair of teams trying to get into postseason position.

Now comes another desperate foe -- the Columbus Blue Jackets, who will try to get back into a wild card spot Tuesday night when they host the Islanders.

Both teams were off Monday following shutout victories Sunday. The host Islanders blanked the Arizona Coyotes 2-0; the visiting Blue Jackets snapped a three-game losing streak by cruising past the Vancouver Canucks 5-0.
