Explaining the difference from last season, Snow cited a play by Yashin in a 3-1 win Thursday in Philadelphia that snapped a two-game losing streak and sent the Islanders into a five-day schedule break on a positive note. Sami Kapanen ran Yashin into the boards, and he made sure to return the favor in spades. "To me, that play showed me he's more determined and that he's playing like a man possessed," Snow said of Yashin. "He made a point to track Kapanen down on the ice, not once, but twice, and buried him. Yash isn't just doing it with his goals or assists. He's leading by example by finishing his checks and playing with a little bit of a chip on his shoulder. When he brings that to the table, it makes him a dominant player."more
