The New York Islanders have a lot of controversy on their hands with the arena drama but they are letting their play do the talking for them.

The captain of the New York Islanders John Tavares has heard this all before. The drama of where the Islanders will play there games has been around almost the entirety of the JT era.

Although Tavares wants to focus on what’s happening on the ice.

“I’m just going to try to get ready for every game,” the captain said Tuesday. “I’ve got enough to worry about just trying to focus on playing and making the playoffs. I think all that stuff will take care of itself.”

Well, his strategy has been working. The team is currently on a seven game point streak. The Isles are 6-0-1 under new coach Doug Weight.

The team is gelling on offense, Thomas Greiss is playing great and they’re beating quality teams. It’s sad that’s being overshadowed by off the ice issues that the team can’t control.

Ultimately the Isles have to just focus on one game at a time. Personally, I don’t really care if they play on the moon just as long as they keep winning hockey games.
