The Isles have lost 11 straight Monday Night games (0-8-3), dating back to a 1995 win in Pittsburgh (the 9-round shootout game).
They did defeat the Penguins last season on a Monday, but that game was a matinee. (I'm also excluding an MLK day loss to Tampa)
Forever1940 is the nom de plume of FSN statistician Eric Hornick. Eric, who has worked the Stanley Cup Finals four times, celebrated his 25th anniversary as the statistician on Islander home telecasts on January 21, 2007. Often referred to on-air as an actuary, he is one of 3,044 Fellows of the Casualty Actuarial Society and is the President of the Casualty Actuaries of Greater NY. You can find him in the "Best Seat in the House", about six feet to Howie and Billy's left, at most Islander home games. For more on the actuarial profession, visit www.beanactuary.org
