Weight preaching simple focus for struggling Islanders

EAST MEADOW, N.Y. (AP) Doug Weight knows it won't be easy for the New York Islanders to get back in the playoff race, but the interim coach is preaching a simple approach in taking it one game at a time with half the season remaining.

Coming off their second straight 100-point season and the franchise's first playoff series win in 23 years, the Islanders stumbled from the start of this season. Despite some brief stretches of good play, they sit last in the Eastern Conference at 17-17-8 and the inconsistency cost coach Jack Capuano his job on Tuesday.

"We have 40 games left," Weight said Wednesday after the Islanders' first practice since the coaching change. "We believe in what we can do on the ice. It's not like there's just 20 games left and we have to win 19 of them."
