More shutout stuff

The last times:

Isles had 2 shutouts in a three game stretch at home -- that one's easy:  2/21/09 - 2/28/09 vs NJ and Buf for Yann Danis
Isles had 2 shutouts in a three game span (or less) - - Back to back 12/23-26/06 vs Columbus and NYR (DiPietro)

Both Islander goalies dressed for a game were coming off shutouts:  1/24/81  (Resch blanked Calgary 5-0 on Jan 20 and Smith shutout Detroit 3-0 on Jan 22 as both opponents seemed almost as concerned with keeping Bossy from 50 in 50 than actually scoring)  Bossy reached 50-in-50 on 1/24/81.

The Isles enter tonight's game looking to do some things they haven't done in a loooooooooong time (if at all):

Isles have not had shutouts in consecutive games by different goalies since 1/20-22/81.
Isles last had shutouts on consecutive calendar days: NEVER
