New York Islanders put emphasis on quick start for shortened NHL season

Earlier in the season, Martin and Hamonic made comments about the team needing to show progress, make the playoffs. Sounds like it's the team motto for 2012-2013.

"We need to get off to a quick start if we want to make the playoffs," said left-winger Matt Moulson, who scored his first two goals of the season as the Isles defeated the host Toronto Maple Leafs 7-4 on Thursday night. "There's not much time to catch up (in the standings), and we want to get off to a good start in the first five games and go from there."


"We're working on (becoming a playoff team)," said Brad Boyes, who signed with the Islanders last summer as an unrestricted free agent and scored his first goal of the season—and added a pair of assists—against Toronto.

Added Boyes: "We've got a lot of young guys who have been together for a while, they've grown and developed together, and now it's about trying to take the next step.…Changing to a winning mindset and making the playoffs."
