Josh Bailey heads into tonight's game with Buffalo with a 6-game assist streak.
He's the first Islander to record an assist in six straight games since Roman Hamrlik did so in 2000-01.
The last Islander to have a seven game assist streak is Robert Reichel, who did so in the first seven games of the 1997-98 season.
The club record is 9, last done by Tom Kurvers in 1991-92.Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982. Visit my blog: forever1940.blogspot.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
