NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The New York Islanders gave coach Jack Capuano another reminder of just how resilient they are this season.

Brock Nelson scored with 6:08 left, helping the Islanders rally after blowing a two-goal lead in the third period with a 4-3 win over the Nashville Predators on Thursday night.

"We've got a positive group," Capuano said. "It's such a different team than we've had in the past. I've said that. We just wanted to play with poise and confidence moving forward."
