Stat Trick - Pens 3, Isles 2

1. Power play time: Isles 3:07 - Penguins 14:43. The Isles had six shots on goal while playing shorthanded.

2. Isles out-hit the Pens 31-15, and won 35 of 53 draws.

3. It's the Penguins' first regualtion win in their last seven trips to Long Island. The Isles had gone 5-0-1 in the previous six.

and one more...

4. Rookie Tyler Kennedy, who scored his first NHL goal on Al Arbour night, had a goal and two assists tonight for the first three-point game of his career. Four of Kennedy's ten career points have come at the Coliseum.

and one question...

How many games will Simon get this time? By receiving a match penalty, Simon has been "automatically suspended from further competition until the Commissioner has ruled on the issue".

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
