Happy Leap Day!

While the Isles are idle today, they have played four previous times on Leap Day.

29-Feb-92VsNew Jersey 1 3 L
29-Feb-96@Detroit 1 5 L
29-Feb-04VsPittsburgh 2 3 Lot

The only success came in 1984; Pat LaFontaine and Patrick Flatley both made their NHL debuts in that game.

Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick. Eric has worked the Stanley Cup Finals four times, and celebrated his 26th anniversary as the statistician on Islander home telecasts on January 21, 2008.
