Happy Anniversary Cappy
Today is the 1 year anniversary of Jack Capuano's first game behind the Isles bench. Capuano replaced Scott Gordon on November 15th after a 4-10-3 start. Capuano's team lost to Tampa 4-2 one year ago tonight. The Isles would go 1-8-2 in the first 11 under Capuano before they started their three-month run to respectability in mid-December.
The Isles are 4-8-3 entering play tonight. They come into tonight's game 1-game over .500 for their history. They have not been below .500 all-time since 1978.
Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982. Visit my blog: NYISkinny.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
