Forever1940 Stat Trick #9

An ugly game produces an interesting stat trick...

1. Carolina's 8 goals tied the club record for most goals since relocating from Hartford. (The Whalers scored 11 goals three times) It also equaled the most goals that the franchise has ever scored against the Isles (Hartford 8, Isles 2 in March 1989)

2. It's the worst home loss of the Nolan era. The Isles last lost by at least five goals at home on Jan 14, 2006 (8-1 to Vancouver)

3. Rod Brind'Amour now has three career hat tricks and two of them are against the Isles. Brind'Amour was the last 'Cane to record a hat trick against the Isles, on January 7, 2001. Brind'Amour now has 414 career goals, including 40 in 80 games played against the Islanders.
