The Isles have scored only two goals in their last four games. That ties the club record for fewest goals in a four-game stretch. The record was set in 1972-73: 2-Jan-73 Vs Atlanta 1 6 L 3-Jan-73 @ Buffalo 1 4 L 6-Jan-73 Vs Detroit 0 4 L 7-Jan-73 @ Detroit 0 4 L

and tied -- twice -- in 2003-04: 22-Nov-03 @ Columbus 1 2 L 26-Nov-03 Vs Carolina 0 2 L 28-Nov-03 @ Detroit 0 6 L 29-Nov-03 Vs Philadelphia 1 5 L

26-Nov-03 Vs Carolina 0 2 L 28-Nov-03 @ Detroit 0 6 L 29-Nov-03 Vs Philadelphia 1 5 L 2-Dec-03 Vs Washington1 4 L

The Isles also equalled the club record for fewest goals scored in three consecutive games, all played at home (2): 27-Feb-01 Vs New Jersey 1 4 L 1-Mar-01 Vs Carolina 1 3 L 3-Mar-01 Vs Tampa Bay 0 6 L

Those were the final three games coached by Butch Goring.
