Islanders Vs. Blue Jackets Final Score: Columbus Routs New York In Season Finale

Despite the fact that nothing more than pride was on the line, the New York Islanders can't be happy with the dismal end to another season absent of a playoff bid, as they went down 7-3 to lowly Columbus on Saturday night.

The Blue Jackets used a four goal surge in the second period to break open their advantage, and Al Montoya simply couldn't find his rhythm in net for the Islanders, stopping just 30 shots of the 37 he faced.

Kyle Okposo, Michael Grabner and Milan Jurcina had the tallies for New York, but their efforts proved futile on a night that Columbus owned.

With the loss, the Islanders finish the season 34-37-11, good enough for just 79 points and a 14th place finish in the Eastern Conference standings.

Columbus will have the greatest odds in the forthcoming NHL draft lottery, as they finished with a league-low 65 points.
