Stat Trick

1. The Isles are 0-3 vs Canadian opponents this season and
0-5-1 in their last six games against their neighbors to the
North. It's their longest winless streak against Canada since an
0-7-3-1 stretch in the 1999-2000 season.

2. The Isles have allowed (at least) four goals in three
straight games for the first time this season.

3. Blake Comeau is only the third Islander to wear #57. Shawn
Evans [1 goal (his only one in the NHL) in 2 games in 1989-90
season] and Mark Hamway [53 games in three seasons for the
Isles, going 5-13-18] are the others, although Hamway may have
worn 57 for only two games in the 1984-85 season.
