The Skinny on January 19, 1990 - last time Isles won nine straight

It's been 29 years and 285 days since the Isles won a 9th straight hockey game.

The Isles defeated Winnipeg 6-4 that night to head into the All-Star break on a high.  In Alberta, Johnny Boychuk was celebrating his sixth birthday; half a continent away, I was celebrating my 26th birthday!

David Chyzowski, taken with the 2nd pick overall, scored the only game-winning goal of his career.  (Mats Sundin was taken 1st) 

Randy Wood scored three power play goal; Pat LaFontaine and Miro Satan are the only Isles to have done so since.

Doug Crossman and Jeff Norton each had three assists for the Isles  -- it's the most recent time two Islander defensemen have recorded three assists in the game!
