History will tell you that this puts the Islanders in a difficult spot tonight, their first game after winning a game at MSG. The Isles have also lost their last six straight games that followed a win at Madison Square Garden; they are 7-24-10 all-time in games following MSG victories.
The Isles last win in a game following an MSG win was on January 11. 2007 in Boston -- a 5-4 shootout win.
The Isles last win AT HOME in a game following an MSG win was on October 20, 2005 -- a 5-4 win over the Rangers at the Coliseum (after winning a shootout in MSG the previous night).
However, the truly ridiculous stat is this: the last time the Isles won at MSG, and then came home and beat anyone other than the Rangers in the very next game at the Coliseum: January 10, 1987 -- a 3-2 win over Toronto the night after a 2-1 win at MSG. Since then the Isles are 2-20-4 in games immediately following an MSG win.
