The Skinny on 1600

The Isles will be looking for the 1,600th regular season victory on Thursday when they host the Devils.

Here's a list of their other century mark wins (as well as the number of games it took them to get there)

Games     Win
3/7/1976  @ Pittsburgh 5 3 W 303 100
4/8/1978  Vs New York 7 2 W 475 200
11/15/1980  Vs Buffalo 4 1 W 654 300
10/21/1982  Vs Washington 6 3 W 804 400
12/3/1984  @ Vancouver 5 4 W 980 500
10/8/1987  @ Los Angeles 4 1 W 1197 600
10/27/1990  Vs Philadelphia 5 2 W 1446 700
11/6/1993  Vs Hartford 5 3 W 1694    800
10/16/1997  @ San Jose 5 2 W 1982 900
10/10/2001  @ Pittsburgh 6 3 W 2307 1000
2/3/2004  Vs Vancouver 5 4 Wot 2521 1100
11/24/2007  Vs Boston 2 1 W 2734 1200
2/5/2011  Vs Ottawa 5 3 W 3012 1300
3/29/2014  Vs New Jersey 2 1 Wso 3246 1400
10/23/2016  Vs Minnesota 6 3 W 3424 1500

Each of the last five milestone wins have come at home; the fewest games between milestones was the 150 between wins 300 and 400 (100-30-20); not surprisingly the Isles spent that entire period as Stanley Cup Champions. The longest stretch was the 325 games between wins 900 and 1,000 (100-186-39).

Adrian Aucoin has the only overtime goal in a century win (1,100); Frans Nielsen had the shootout winner for win #1,400.

Win #200 was a special win - it clinched the Isles' first (Patrick) division championship.  If they earn win #1,600 on Thursday it will move them within one point of Columbus and Washington for the division lead.

The Thursday game against New Jersey will be game 3,628; the Isles are 99-78-26 since defeating Minnesota for win #1,500.
