Last to win....

...at least in regulation. 

The Isles are now the only team in the NHL without a regulation win, at Toronto has defeated Anaheim 6-3.  The Ducks allowed a club-record five power play goals.

The Isles may have technically escaped their worst start ever since they have a win in there. However, since they do not have a regulation win as of yet, I believe this is the longest the Isles have ever gone in between regulation wins aside from the shortened season and the lockout. IS this the longest the Isles have ever gone in between regulation wins?

This is the furthest into a season that the Isles have ever gone without a regulation win (10 games).

They've actually gone 14 games without a regulation win including the last four games of last season.

The club record winless streak is 15, set in 1972-73. The NHL, however, will not recognize that record as being tied if that Isles do not beat the Rangers in regulation tonight.
