Power Outage

The Isles will bring a 6-game streak of being held without a power play goal into their game Saturday in Columbus.

It's the longest streak without a PP goal since they went 12 games from November 10-December 9, 2010.  Those 12 games included the final three games coached by Scott Gordon and the first nine coached by Jack Capuano.

Streaks of 6+ games without a power play goal (since 2001):

12 November 10 - December 9, 2010
6   March 6 - March 16, 2006
7   November 13 - November 28, 2003
7   March 30 - April 12, 2002
6   March 2 - March 12, 2002

The Isles have gone two weeks without a power play goal (0-21) -- their last power play goal came in the first period of their game in Pittsburgh on October 25th...and was scored by Matt Moulson.
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
