Isles scoreless in 164:26 vs Pittsburgh

The Isles will need a goal in the first two periods on Friday to avoid setting a
club record for the longest scoreless streak against one opponent.  The record
of 202:00 was set in 1973.  The Isles got real close to the record in 2003, but
Michael Peca ended a goal-less streak against the Devils 16 seconds shy of the
record.
