Islanders Esoteric #4 & Esoteric #5

RaRa Notes: Esoteric #4 was late due to travel and work. After seeing last night’s debacle its just easier to combine the two. I hate doing the esoteric after a loss. It is just no fun. With us scoring a single goal it makes it easy except for the 9 penalties we took. This is a trend that I do not like. 21 minutes in the box meant we played an entire period down a player.

6 Games in 8 Nights. Thanks NHL! Friday, Saturday, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday. With a back-to-back travel night last night.

The other big news is Berard’s return.

Bryan joins 11 other players who have had two or more tours of duty with the team for various reason. The other players are Niklas Andersson, Marius CZerkawski, Brad Dalgarno, Gord Dineen, Ted Donato, Dave McLLWain, Kip Miller, Kip Miller, Kip Miller, Jean Potvin, Randy Robitaille, Steve Webb, and Randy Wood.

If the esoteric stat includes last night’s games numbers I will place an asterisk in from on that players name.


Oct 11, 1975 – The Islanders win their home opener, 7-0, versus LA. Rookie Trottier tallies 3 Goals and 2 Assists.

Oct 11, 1979 – Clark Gillies relinquishes the captaincy. Denis Potvin is named Captain.

Oct 12, 1972 – 35 years ago today, Islanders beat LA Kings, 3-2, at home for the franchise’s first win. Billy Harris takes the first penalty shot in Islander’s History and is unsuccessful.
