Islanders present and future now looking bright


SYOSSET, N.Y. (AP) - Mark Streit is a rarity for the New York Islanders. The veteran defenseman is one of the few players, who when given the chance to go anywhere, actually chose to play on Long Island.

Nearly five years after he signed his free-agent contract, Streit is about to wear the team's orange and blue sweater in a playoff game for the first time.

"It's amazing," the Islanders captain said Monday after practice. "It's a great feeling. The past was some rough years, definitely."

Don't try to bring them down with doom and gloom talk about having to play the top-seeded Pittsburgh Penguins (36-12-0) in the first round of the Eastern Conference tournament.

"The future is bright," Streit said. "There are a lot of young guys on the team and there is a veteran presence, as well, so it's a good mix. The future in Brooklyn looks great, as well
