NEWARK, N.J. -- Maybe the moribund New York Islanders have discovered some new life and are ready to turn the corner as a legitimate NHL contender. "We found a way to win on the road, and good teams are the ones to do that," said Islanders center John Tavares, who had two goals and an assist in the Islanders' 5-4 overtime victory over the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night at the Prudential Center. "We've had a lot of fun over the last five games," Tavares said after his team finished a 3-1-1 road trip, improving to 4-2-1 overall. "The key is just understanding our team and our game. We know we're a tough team to go against right now. I was always pretty confident, even though things didn't go our way." The Islanders blew one two-goal lead and three one-goal advantages, yet they managed to win when Brad Boyes scored a power-play goal with 2:59 left in overtime.

Ryan Strome (OHL Images)
Really starting to feel bad for Ryan Strome (NYI 2011 1st) as the New York Islander prospect doesn't belong in the OHL but yet there he is being the best player on a one line team. I get it the Islanders didn't want to burn a year of his entry level contract during this shortened NHL season.
And Strome is trying his best to help his Niagara IceDogs...
