The Oilers close out their home schedule at 19-21-0 as they blow their chance to clinch a playoff spot in a winnable game
Edmonton has their last 3 games on the road, only needing to win 1.  Their next game is Tuesday night, a showdown in Vancouver
Bill Ranford had a rare off night, allowing 5 goals on 24 shots and only saving 2 of 6 goalie rating draws.  Mark Fitzpatrick was only slightly better
Brent Sutter and Pat Flatley had 2 goals apiece for the Islanders.  Craig MacTavish scored two goals for Edmonton, including a highlight short handed goal in the 2nd
In a tie game, Jari Kurri had a mental lapse in defense that allowed Randy Wood to get a point blank shot.  The Oilers could not recover it and LaFontaine jammed the rebound home
