Elias on the Pens win

Elias has a good (bad) note on the Penguins win last night:

Crosby (0-5-5) and Kunitz (3-2-5) are the first teammates to record 5 points in a game since Dustin Penner (2-3-5) and Ales Hemsky (1-4-5) did so in an Edmonton- Columbus game on October 22, 2009.

From my own research:
  • Last Isles teammates each with 5+ points in a game: Derek King (3-2-5) and Pat Lafontaine (3-3-6) on Feb 6, 1990 -- also in Pittsburgh.  (Isles won 8-7 in overtime)
  • Last teammates to do so against the Isles: Patrik Elias (4-1-5) and Scott Gomez (0-5-5) on March 30, 2003 in New Jersey.
  • The last 4 players to record 5+ points against the Isles are all Penguins (Crosby 3x and Kunitz).  No non-Penguin has done it to the Isles since October 23, 2008 (Mike Ribiero did it for Dallas).
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

Eric,

Love the blog. I keep a workbook of stats for all games (baseball, hockey, basketball, football) that I attend. I'd really appreciate it if you could take a look at it and give me some feedback on it. If you can give me a way to contact you, thanks!
