While the Isles accomplished this feat seven times in their first 12 seasons (including once in the "Drive For Five" campaign in 1983-84), it has been done only twice since 1984:
January 10-17, 1990 (Games 4-8 of a 9-game win streak)
February 14-21, 2008 (Final 5 games of a 6-game win streak)
(The Isles have played 5 games in 7 days a number of times in their history, but have come close to winning all five only once -- the won 4 times in the final six days of 2003 before dropping a 1-0 decision in Ottawa on New Year's Day.)
On a more generic note, the Isles will be looking to win for only their second road winning streak under Scott Gordon. They defeated Buffalo and Montreal last November 22-24, with the latter being the famed Ryan O'Byrne game.
