One goal games

The Isles have now played seven straight one goal games on the road, with six decided in overtime/shootout.  The Isles are 3-1-3 in those seven games.
The Isles also played seven consecutive one-goal games on the road last season, going 4-2-1 from December 9th - January 9th.
 
The club record for consecutive one-goal games on the road is 8, set from December 26, 1976-January 22, 1977.  The Isles went 3-2-3 in that stretch.
 
The Isles have won only once this season by one goal in regulation  (1-12 in regulation one goal games and 10-0-11 in ot/so).  The win was vs. Anaheim on December 16th -- the game that started their current 50 points in 42 games stretch.
