The New York Islanders are finally starting to show glimpses of the team they are capable of being. They finished a two-game stint on the road where they racked up four out of four points.
The Isles defense is coming up strong as of late providing much needed support in the defensive end—something lacking during the start of the season.
John Tavares is proven to be the player the Isles drafted first overall and his linemates are proving to be more then capable help.
Secondary offensive support is beginning to shoot up from Grabner, Okposo, Frans Nielsen and even Josh Bailey. Frans Nielsen scored two shootout goals to secure their Islanders' two most recent wins.
