The New York Islanders are an American ice hockey team based in Uniondale, New York. They compete in the National Hockey League (NHL) Eastern Conference's Atlantic Division. Since their inaugural season in 1972, the team has played its home games in Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.[1] In thirty-six completed seasons, the team has won the Stanley Cup championship four times and has qualified for the playoffs twenty-one times. They have played more than 230 playoff games, winning 130. As of the end of the 2007–08 season, New York has won more than 1,200 regular season games, the 14th-highest victory total among NHL teams.[2]

The Islanders were founded in 1972 during the 1972–73 season, and won their first of four consecutive Stanley Cup championships in 1980. The team has since lost the Conference Finals in 1993 to eventual Stanley Cup champions Montreal Canadiens. Since then, the Islanders only qualified for the playoffs once between 1994 and 2001. The Islanders have never won the Presidents' Trophy, although they led the NHL in regular-season points in three seasons before the league began awarding the trophy; they won the Stanley Cup in two out of the three seasons. The Islanders last qualified for the playoffs in 2007; their most recent playoff series victory was in 1993. They last reached the Stanley Cup finals in 1984, their fifth consecutive appearance and first finals loss. As of 2013, the Islanders are the last North American team to win four consecutive league championships.

In the lockout-shortened 2013 season, the Islanders returned to the playoffs for the first time since 2007, and just the second time since the 2004-05 NHL Lockout.
