Skinny Leftovers

Oops... I forgot a few.

The Isles have had  at least 40 shots in consecutive games for the first time since January 2-4, 2007.

(With thanks to Elias, and As Seen on MSG+):  It's the first time the Isles have had consecutive 40 shot winning games since January 9-11, 1986 .  (The Isles won those games by a combined score of 17-2)

The Bruins suffered their first regulaion loss when leading after two periods (25-1-1).

While Michael Grabner continues to improve his Rookie-of-the Year candidacy,  Brad Marchand was benched in the 3rd period by Claude Julien.

Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982. Visit my blog: forever1940.blogspot.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
