Streaking!

Penalty kill has not allowed a goal on road trip, and in last 5 games overall. 
They have killed 13 straight over the 5 games and 21-23 over the last 8.

Isles had a 5 game streak without allowing a PPG in the final 5 games
of December 2009.  They haven't held six consecutive opponents without a PP goal

since November 10-19, 2005, when they killed all 33 over that stretch.
