John Tavares thinks the Islanders need to get better at protecting leads.
The Islanders were 15-6-6 when taking a lead into the third period, which was the worst winning percentage in the league in that situation. Every other squad won at least two-thirds of their games when leading through 40 minutes. Tavares also feels the team needs to improve its play at home and on special teams. "We have to be a lot better in a lot of areas, our consistency has to be a lot better," Tavares said. "When we're playing well and doing the right things consistently we're a good team. We showed that last year and we showed that during the stretch from December into January and the young guys showed it at the end of this season." Apr 17 - 9:54 AM
