Isles (lack of) shots on goal in historic territory
The Isles were held to 23 shots on goal in their win over Ottawa.
It's the 9th straight game that the Isles have been held to 28 shots or fewer -- the longest such streak by the Isles in over 18 years:
The Isles went 10 games without having more than 28 shots in both the 1997-98 and 1995-96 season. They also had an 11 -game streak of that kind over two seasons in May/October 1995.
Should the Isles be held to 28 or fewer by Tampa Bay, they will match the longest (single season) streak by the team in at least 28 years.
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
