Stat Trick (+1)

1. The Isles have scored only nine goals in their last six games; Jason Blake has four of them. His third period goal broke a 135:15 scoreless streak for the Islanders at home. He had scored the last three Islander goals before Mike Sillinger brought the Islanders within a goal.

2. The Isles have been a very streaky team on home ice since November: two straight losses, followed by three straight wins, followed by three straight losses, followed by four straight wins, and now two straight losses.

3. The Islanders have lost four straight at home to Philadelphia and are only 2-9-1 in their last twelve home games against the Flyers.

4. There have been only nineteen goals scored in the last six Islander games (9 by the Isles). This is the fewest goals in a six-game stretch in Islander history. The previous record, 20, was set in 1998 (the final two games of the 1997-98 season and the first four games of the 1998-99 season) and equaled with the six games that the Isles played before tonight.

...and did I mention that the Isles have lost four straight since beating the Rangers! It's the first time that they've ever had a four game losing streak following a victory over the Blueshirts.
