Lots of Home Cooking Coming

The Isles begin a club record-tying 7 game homestand on Sunday when they host Carolina.

It's the sixth time in club history that the Isles have played seven consecutive home games.

The others:
  • October 7- October 28, 1972  (1-5-1 in the first seven games in club history)
  • December 19, 2000- January 2, 2001  (2-5-0)
  • November 21-December 4, 2001 (3-2-2)
  • October 14- October 31, 2006 (4-1-2)
  • February 15-March 1, 2007 (5-1-1) Ryan Smyth debuted in that 3/1 game, the only one that the Islanders lost.
(The Isles would be happy if the win progression (1 the first time, 2 the second time, etc.) continues over the next two weeks.)
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
