The New York Islanders
The New York Islanders, also known as the Penguins, were formed in 1972. It didn’t take long for the team to make its mark. After six years of its formation, in 1978, it won the division title. The Islanders repeated the feat again in 1979. The team was on a roll and in 1980 it clinched the conference and Stanley Cup double.
In the early 80s, the team dominated the NHL and in 1981, it completed the division, conference and Stanley Cup treble to become the team of the era. The Islanders have six division titles, five conference championships and four Stanley Cups to their name. In 2015–16, the Blues finished in second place in the Central Division. It seems the Islanders are coming together as a team, as general manager Garth Snow had anticipated when the season started.

St Louis Blues
The Blues were founded in 1967 and play their home games at the Scottrade Center. Unlike the Islanders who have four Stanley Cups to their names, the Blues haven’t even won a single title. This makes them the oldest NHL team never to have won the coveted trophy. The team has, however, nine division championships and one Presidents’ Trophy to its name.
The St. Louis Blues will face off against the Islanders, in a game scheduled at the Blues home ground, the Scottrade Center. Ken Hitchcock is at the helm for the final time. The coach is known for his regular-season success but is criticized for not being able to carry it into the playoffs. He would want to end this season with a win, whether it happens for the Blues remains to be seen.
