Stat Trick

1. The Islanders now have hat tricks in back-to-back games at MSG. They had recorded only three previous hat tricks in their history at MSG [Trottier in 1977, Bossy in 1982 and Yashin in 2002].

2. Jaromir Jagr had three points, giving him 132 against the Islanders in his career. Only Mario Lemieux (135), who was in attendance tonight, has more career points against the Isles.

3. It's the first time since the 1993-94 season that the Islanders have had two hat tricks against one opponent.
On October 23, 1993, Derek King had three goals in a 5-5 tie at the Coliseum
On November 17, 1993, Pierre Turgeon had three goals in an 8-1 win in Ottawa

3a. The last time that the Isles had two hat tricks on the road against one opponent in a single season was in the 1989-90 season.
Derek King and Steve Thomas had hat tricks on February 6, 1990 in an 8-7 OT win in Pittsburgh.

3b. The last time that the Isles had hat tricks on the road against one opponent in consecutive games was in the 1985-86 season.
On November 6, 1985, Patrick Flatley had his only career 4-goal game in a 5-4 win in Toronto
On March 20, 1986, Mike Bossy had a three-goal game in a 7-1 win in Toronto
