Tavares, added depth end Islanders' playoff drought


For the first time in six years, the New York Islanders are in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The 2012-13 campaign was truly a tale of two seasons for the Islanders. It began with the delayed arrival of defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky, who first tried to block his trade from the Anaheim Ducks last summer then, after the deal was upheld, didn't play his first game with New York until Feb. 9 as he attended to his ill son in Slovakia.

Visnovsky's absence, combined with subpar goaltending from the tandem of Evgeni Nabokov and Rick DiPietro, played big roles in what was a rough start for the Islanders, particularly on home ice. Some may have believed another lottery pick was in the cards after what transpired Feb. 15, when New York suffered a 7-0 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
