3 or less streak reaches 21

The Isles have now scored three goals or less in 21 consecutive games, yet have earned points in over half of those games, going 9-10-2. The streak started on Al Arbour night. The last time the Isles scored 4 goals was in a 4-0 win over Tampa on November 1.

The club record for scoring three goals or less is 23 games, set in 1999. The Isles went 4-14-5 during that streak, which ended with a 5-3 win over Florida on March 31, 1999.

Prior to the current streak, the 2nd longest streak was 17 straight games during the 95 lockout season.

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", to the left of Howie and Billy, at most Islander home games. For more on the actuarial profession, visit www.beanactuary.org
