With just two days until the Islanders play their first preseason game, the team concentrated their practice on drills and systems. Jack Capuano and the rest of the Isles coaching staff definitely worked the players hard, but everyone seemed to be good spirits.
Capuano was pleased with the practice. He said, “We covered a little more systematically of what we wanted to do, but the work ethic, the pace, the tempo was all good again.”
A story about the team’s systems will be coming later in the day.
