Not just bad -- historical

Upon further review, the Islanders record when leading after two periods is even worse that I thought. (They are 8-4-1). The four losses are more than they had in any full season since at least 1995-96.

(The Isles lost only once in each of the two seasons under Nolan when leading after two periods; they lost only once-total when leading after two periods under Laviolette.)

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.
