Rewriting the Overtime Record Book

I'll have a complete Stat Trick tomorrow but suffice it to say that the Isles' first win ever in Columbus rewrote several parts of the Isles' record book:

Most overtime games 23 (previous record 22 in 2006-07); also played 22 ties in 1974-75.
Most overtime/shootout wins 13 (previous record 12 in 2005-06)
Most overtime goals 6 (ties record set in 2001-02)

Most overtime games, road 13 (ties record set in 1993-94)
Most overtime goals, road 5 (previous record 4 in 1985-86)

Most overtime goals, season  (one player)  2, (ties record held by several others, including Kyle Okposo earlier this season)
Most overtime goals, season, road (one player) 2, ties record set by Turgeon in 92-93 and again in 93-94,  and equaled by Okposo earlier this season
