Quote of the Day

"As far as the power play goes, it’s about getting pucks to the net, and outnumbering them and converging. That’s why we’ve had some success. We get in the zone and we’re not wasting too much time to try to get our shots through. I think our power play has done a good job with that and we’ve isolated guys and found those 2-on-1s like we need."

-Islanders Head Coach Jack Capuano
