History at the Coliseum last night

... but for the LA Kings.

According to the Elias geniuses, it is the first time in Kings history that they have EVER won a road game in regulation time in which they were being shutout by at least a 2-0 score thru 40 minutes.

It had happened twice before in Los Angeles (in 1970 vs. Minnesota and in 1998 vs. Calgary).

 
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
