Struggling Special teams

The Isles have played 132 games under Scott Gordon.

In those 132 games, they have scored three power play goals exactly ONCE -- last March in Chicago.

They have allowed at least three power play goals TWELVE times, including five times in the last 21 games.


The Isles last connected for 3 pp goals at home on October 31, 2006 against Chicago; they've had 10 games with at least 3 pp goals scored since then -- all on the road.

The Isles have had only one multiple power play goal game at home this season -- Opening Night vs. Pittsburgh.
