Isles at 20 games

Normally, 20 games is almost 1/4 of a hockey season.  Of course this year it's 5/12th of a season.

Interesting to compare where the Isles are compared to the last few seasons thru 20 games

2010-11  4-12-4 for 12 pts  41 GF,  68 GA
2011-12  5-11-4 for 14 pts  38 GF,  66 GA
2012-13  8-11-1 for 17 pts  57 GF,  68 GA

(Goals For/Goals Against include shootout winners)

Isles scoring is up 50% over 20 games from last year, going from 1.9 Goals per Game to 2.85 Goals per Game

57 goals is the highest Islander total thru 20 games since they scored 62 goals in 20 games coming out of the last lockout (2005-06)
68 goals allowed matches the highest Isles total thru 20 games since they allowed 69 goals in 20 games in 2005-06.

Club records at 20 games:

Most goals for: 105 in 1984-85
Fewest goals for: 38 last season

Fewest goals allowed: 45 in 1976-77
Most goals allowed: 99 in 1972-73

Thanks @slapshot86 for the question.
