That's the most recent of four consecutive Islander wins over the Oilers on the Island. Edmonton has not won at the Coliseum this century. Their last win here came on December 14, 1999 (3,611 days ago) as they beat the Isles (and coach Butch Goring) 4-2 that night, before an announced crowd of only 6,526.
No fewer than six future Islanders (and one former Islander) played for Edmonton that night..
Ex-Isle Tommy Salo got the win in his return to the Coliseum. Guerin scored the game's first goal off an assist from Weight.
