Trivia/Road Warriors

Who was the last Islander to record a six-point game? Pat LaFontaine -- February 6, 1990 @ Pittsburgh [3 goals, 3 assists in the only 8-7 game the Islanders have ever played -- Don Maloney won it in overtime] _______________________________________________ Road Warriors: The Isles now have 18 points [in 16 games] on the road and 11 points [in 11 games] at home. It's only the second time since 83-84 [the "Drive for Five" season] that the Isles have this many points through 16 road games -- they had 20 in Laviolette's first season. They've won four straight on the road for the first time since they opened the 2001-02 season 6-0 on the road. If the Isles win in Columbus, they'll have 9 more points on the road than at home for only the second time in their history -- In 2001-02, they opened with 4 road wins, lost in OT at home to Detroit and then won in Carolina -- to give them 10 points on the road and only one at home.
