OTTAWA — Two teams sliding toward the regular-season finish line and early tee times will meet up on short rest at Canadian Tire Centre on Tuesday night.

The Ottawa Senators (26-38-11) will be the hosts 24 hours after having their losing streak extended to five games with a 4-1 road beating by the Carolina Hurricanes. The Senators Cortez Kennedy Jersey , who are still very much in contention for the dubious distinction of owning best draft lottery odds, have now been outscored 22-7 in their last four games.

Supplying the opposition will be a New York Islanders (31-35-10) team still had a shot at qualifying for the postseason tournament the last time they won two in a row. Unfortunately, that was Feb. 15-16.

Since then, the Islanders are 2-10-4 and — after being shut out 3-0 at home by the Florida Panthers on Monday — have now dropped three straight.

The loss officially eliminated the Islanders from the playoffs for the second spring in row.

“We got off to a pretty good start this season (but) the second half of the season really hasn’t been very good,” captain John Tavares told reporters after the game. “We put ourselves in this position.”

The future of Tavares comes under even closer scrutiny now that the Islanders final six games have no significance. The rest of the NHL will be watching closely for signs of whether they’ll be able to sign their first overall pick of the 2009 entry draft or if he hits the free agent market on July 1.

In nine seasons with the Islanders, Tavares has played 663 games and scored 615 points.

Asked about his plans on Monday, Tavares was brief with his response.

“I’m just focused on playing Javorius Allen Jersey ,” he said.

The Senators were without their own captain, Erik Karlsson, when they travelled to Carolina. That meant they had three rookies on their blue line — Thomas Chabot, Ben Harpur and Christian Wolanin.

Playing his first NHL game was center Ben Sexton, whose father Randy was one of the franchise’s founding fathers as well the team’s second GM.

Senators coach Guy Boucher compared having so many fresh faces in the lineup to “throwing lions into the den.”

“They’ve got to learn somehow, right,” said goalie Craig Anderson Jimmy Smith Jersey , who made 26 saves in Carolina. “Right now, it’s a good time. You see some guys stepping into roles they’re not used to playing and doing quite well with it.”

The Senators and Islanders have met twice this season, with the Islanders scoring a 2-1 win Nov. 25 at Canadian Tire Centre and Ottawa taking a 6-5 victory out of Barclays Center one week later.

With Christopher Gibson playing Monday, the Islanders are expected to go with Jaroslav Halak in Ottawa. He has a 7-7-3 career record against the Senators.

Mike Condon is expected to play the second of Ottawa’s back-to-backs. He has a 3-1-0 all-time mark versus the Islanders.

The only player to score for either team on Monday was Senators winger Bobby Ryan, who now has two goals in two games and 10 on the season.

Rather than retire, Frank Gore is joining his hometown team.

The NFL's active rushing leader agreed to terms with the Miami Dolphins, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on Thursday. The person confirmed the agreement to the AP on condition of anonymity because the deal won't be final until Gore passes a physical.

Gore Blake Martinez Jersey , who turns 35 next month, grew up in South Florida and played for the Miami Hurricanes. He rushed for 961 yards for Indianapolis last year, and when the Colts decided against trying to re-sign him, there was speculation the 2017 season might have been his last.

But the Dolphins want to give the durable Gore a chance to provide depth at running back behind Kenyan Drake, who became Miami's starter last year and averaged 4.8 yards per carry.

Miami also kept defensive end William Hayes, signing him to a one-year contract. Hayes, acquired by Miami in a trade a year ago Chris Hogan Jersey , played in 10 games as a backup in 2017 before being placed on injured reserve because of a back injury.

Gore has rushed for 14,026 yards in his NFL career to rank fifth on the all-time list. He spent three seasons with the Colts, and in 2016 became the league's oldest 1,000-yard rusher since John Riggins in 1982.

Gore also played for the San Francisco 49ers and has started every game since 2011.
