Stat Trick: Post Ranger Letdown

Streaks will collide tonight in Ottawa. Isles have won the first 6 back-ends of back-to-backs this season (It's the first time they've won the first six back-ends in a season; the club record for consecutive wins in back-ends is 9.)


1. Tthe Isles are 7 wins, 19 losses, 4 ties, and 3 ot losses in their last 33 games following a game against the Rangers. (This includes a 1-2 record in the back-end of home/homes with the Rangers).

2. In their last 12 games following a win against the Rangers, dating back to 1999, the Isles are 1-8-3, with the only win coming in the back-half of the home and home in October, 2005. The Isles haven't beaten the Rangers on one night and then beaten any opponent (other than the Rangers) the next night since 1987 [10/31/87 W 8-2 NYR; 11/1/87 W 6-5(ot) at Boston).

3. The Isles have played Ottawa in the game following the Rangers eight times in their history. They haven't won once --four losses, three ties, and an overtime loss. Overall, the Isles are 2-12-3 in their last 17 visits to the Canadian capital and are 4-29-9 (8 ties, 1 ot loss) in 42 games against the Sens since January 1996.
