Monday, November 22, 2010
The Isles have 2 games remaining in November: Wednesday vs Columbus and Friday vs New Jersey. They will need to win one of them to avoid the first winless calendar month in franchise history as well as matching the franchise record for games without a win (15).
The Isles will need to beat Columbus to avoid the longest winless streak in terms of days in club history. The current record is 35, set during the 14-game winless streak in 1990.
