One of the greatest rallies in Isles history occurred on this date in 1987 as the Isles came from four goals down in the third period to win.
The Isles are spending this Pi Day the same way they spent Pi Day 2015 - by facing the Montreal Canadiens in a huge game for both teams. [The Habs won 3-1 back in 2015] Including that game,
the Isles have played ten March 14th games at the Coliseum and have compiled a 3-5-2 record on this date at 1255 Hempstead Turnpike in Uniondale.

Also on this date: (2010) Blake Comeau recorded the first three-assist game and set a career high with 27 points as the Isles defeated Toronto 4-1. Nikolai Kulemin scored just 57 seconds into play, to give Toronto the lead. However, Tim Jackman tied the game just 1:54 later, and Richard Park gave the Isles a lead with a shorthanded tally. Frans Nielsen and Matt Moulson added the other Islander goals. Trevor Gillies recorded his first NHL point on the Park goal, leaving him 662 points behind Clark Gillies on the all-time Isles list.
