The 2012–13 New York Islanders season was the 41st season in the franchise's history.[2] The regular season was reduced from its usual 82 games to 48 due to a lockout.

For the sixth time in franchise]] history, the Islanders tied their longest homestand (of seven games) – beginning on February 24 and lasting through March 9 – in which they earned three wins during that span.[3]

The Islanders qualified for the Stanley Cup playoffs for the first time since the 2006–07 NHL season.

Off-seasonEdit

Regular seasonEdit

On March 22, 2013, the Islanders were 12th in the Eastern Conference and a playoff spot seemed unlikely. The team would then earn points in 14 of 15 games, including 11 consecutive games with at least a point to officially clinch a playoff berth on April 23.[4][5]

The Islanders tied the Minnesota Wild for the fewest shorthanded goals allowed, with 0.[6]
