NHL Snap Shots: Tavares, Komarov, Jets and Subban

The New York Islanders young star forward, John Tavares, is hitting his stride according to an article by Arthur Staple in Newsday.  Tavares has 11 points in 7 games so far for the Isles, who sit tied for first place in the Atlantic Division with the New Jersey Devils.

Leo Komarov's play for the Toronto Maple Leafs has been praised by teammates recently in a recent post on the Toronto Sun website.  This is the 26 year old's first NHL season after a few seasons in the KHL.

The Winnipeg Jets were blown out by the Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday, but according to an article by Tim Campbell in the Winnipeg Free Press, the Jets' captain Andrew Ladd has a positive outlook on the situation:
"I think in terms of the way we want to play, it's obviously not a right step and we'll work to get back to the identity that's going to make us a successful hockey team," Ladd said. "It's part of a season and you have to deal with and find ways to get momentum going the other way and get playing the right way."
Pat Hickey reports in the Montreal Gazette, that the Montreal Canadiens aren't saying outright whether P.K. Subban will see his first NHL action of the season this weekend, but that signs are pointing to him getting into the action.
