The New York Islanders finally found their stride, it just came way too late to salvage this non-playoff season.

Forget all that talk and speculation that John Tavares would flee Long Island as soon as he got a chance at free agency.
"If you can tell by my voice right now, it was pretty special," Tavares said in a raspy tone. "It was a lot of fun. It is something I will never forget.

"I think it's important for us to play," Tavares said.
