Last times...

With last night's game winding down scoreless I put together a bunch of shutout notes and sent it off to Pittburgh.

I don't think any of them made air before the Penguin goal so you can't blame Howie  (you can always blame me :)

Isles had 2 consecutive shutouts:  Dec 23/26, 2006 vs Columbus and New York  (both by DiPietro)
Isles had consecutive shutouts by someone other than Dipietro: October 14/17, 1998 at Tampa and St. Louis (both by Salo)

Isles shutout Pens  Jan 9, 1986 (9-0 for Hrudey)
Isles shutout Pens in Pittsburgh  Feb 2 1985 (4-0 for Hrudey)
Any coach other than Arbour shutout Pens:  NEVER

Last 1-0 win : Feb 21 2008 vs Tampa
Last 1-0 OT win: Dec 31 2002 in Buffalo (Blake)
Last 0-0 tie thru 65 minutes: Feb 24 2004 vs Boston  (last of 6 scoreless ties in Isles history)

Last 1-0 loss: Feb 7 2009 in Tampa  (now 2/25/09 at Pittsburgh)
ONLY 1-0 OT loss: Dec 10 2003 in New Jersey
Isles have never played a scoreless game that was then decided in shootout.  (If they do, both goales get credit for shutout)

 Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982.
