Isles wear reminder of 2011-12 goal

By Katie Strang

If the Islanders need to remember their goal for the 2011-12 season, they have a reminder dangling from their neck.

Before the season, former captain Doug Weight, now an assistant coach and advisor to GM Garth Snow, handed out dog tag necklaces to the entire team that feature the numbers 5 and 16.

The meaning?

The Islanders are seeking their 5th Stanley Cup. It takes 16 wins in the post-season to get there.
