Jilted Islanders Fans Have Harsh Words For John Tavares In Extremely Long Island Video
Thursday is a very special day in Nassau County. John Tavares returns to the Coliseum (where the Islanders are playing half their home dates, because that Brooklyn thing really isn’t working out) for the first time since leaving the Isles after nine seasons and signing with the Maple Leafs. But it’s not happening under the circumstances most would’ve expected last summer. The surprising Islanders are in first place in the Metro—Tavares’s exit has not left the team nearly so bereft as predicted—and so, the erstwhile captain comes back to a fan base that isn’t merely heartbroken, though they are that, but is feeling pretty damned feisty about it.

"You got that kind of pressure, that’s kind of a free out if that’s what happened," he added. "I didn’t really see it. We did everything but tie it up. We had our chances, pucks were just bouncing around the net, around the crease. We just couldn’t find the tie."
The Leafs trailed 4-0 after 20 minutes and 5-1 through two periods before scoring three times and registering 29 shots on goal in the third frame.
Tavares established a new career high with his 39th goal this season, bringing Toronto within one with about 90 seconds remaining.
