Isles have scored only SEVEN first period goals -- tied with Carolina and Minnesota for fewest in NHL.
Isles have scored 26 second period goals -- most in NHL; Chicago, Ottawa and Montreal are tied for 2nd with 21.
Isles have scored 19 third period goals -- seventh in NHL

Only Tampa (46) has scored more 2nd/3rd period goals (combined) than Isles.

Isles have allowed 15 first period goals and 17 second period goals (both are middle of the pack,  T-10 and T-11  highest respectively) but have allowed NHL-high 27 goals in third period (two more than Winnipeg).
Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since January 21, 1982. Visit my blog: NYISkinny.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
