Stat Trick

1. The Islanders opened the scoring for the 7th straight game.
Mike Sillinger did the honors for the third time this
month--tops in the NHL.

2. The Isles recorded their 77th and 78th points -- tying last
season's total. They have 43 points at home and 35 on the road,
the exact split they ended last season.

3. The Isles finish the season 3-0-1 against the Caps and are
8-1-1 in their last 10 games against Washington. Prior to this
stretch the Isles had won only 1 of 29 games against the Caps.

...

and one more-- could this be the end of the Post-Ranger
let-down?

The Isles have won 2 of their last three games that immediately
follow a game with the Rangers. (the loss was on Thursday,
following Monday's game). The Isles also broke a three-game
winless streak in games following a home-home with the Rangers.
They are now 11-6-3 all-time in the game following the 20 home-home.
