That is the challenge awaiting a franchise thats been to the playoffs once in seven seasons and hasnt won a postseason series since 1993. Well build off it and get better, Tavares told the Islanders official website. Its obviously been good to get the results we wanted. This puts us in good position, but theres a long way to go. Were doing some good things and we believe in ourselves. That belief has made the difference in the eyes of coach Jack Capuano. From top to bottom, we know were not going to lose, he said. Its about the players and its about accountability, Capuano added when talking to the NHLs official website. Thats the biggest thing for me - the leadership, how theyre handling one another and how theyre holding one another accountable. You can be very successful that way.
